    Hi Orlando,

    When would you say Que andar instead of Qual andar ?

    Also, an interesting note about obrigado and obrigado, though I’m not 100% sure if it’s true. I read somewhere that in the Algarve in Portugal a man might say obrigado and a woman say obrigado if they are expressing thanks on behalf of the business they work for, and not on behalf of themselves as such. Have you ever eard of such a thing ?

    Thanks again for the wonderful lessons.

      Typo correction: I meant to say that a woman might say obrigado and a man might say obrigada on behalf of their employer.

      Hey H.O.King, wow, you are ahead of me on this one. I know nothing about how “obrigado” might be changed by woman in Portugal who is expressing thanks on behalf of a business. I’m pretty amazed at how you even thought of the scenario!
