Mange byer og land har sin egen distinkte sykdom. Ett eksempel er Portugal, så hensunket i en smertefull lengsel etter fortiden, der hver spenning i nåtiden bare er toppen av et isfjell hvis røtter kan følges helt tilbake til artenes opprinnelse, minst.

Many cities or countries have a distinct malaise. They are places that could be Portugal, so sunk in a painful longing for the past, and where each tension of the present is only the tip of an iceberg that is explained in successive retreats that can go straight until the origin of the species, at least.
