Men at Work in Portugal

Rede Eléctrica works in no fixed direction. No wonder that the Portuguese worker sometimes is so puzzled that he falls apart to pieces. At Madeira our road sign spotters team could tick the same kind of designs with the same men working in both directions.

The man with the shovel is a trifle peculiar in Europe. Men just having shoveled the earthen heaps away are more typical for countries in Central and South-America. We've noticed them in Mexico, Chile, Peru and others.

Portugal has a very diverse workforce, but the picture from Nazaré shows that Portugal is definitely on the wrong track. This worker is the same European nobody as in neighbouring Spain and in fact the whole Mediterranean region.

Read the Mediterranean workforce explained.

The Azores also have some nice men!
