Meet the Samrow Family – Portugal
By Depinder Samrow

Born to a father working in the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs and without a permanent
address or office, had its perks. The biggest
was getting a stature of “ World Citizen”.
When I was five years old, my voyage into
foreign lands began, starting with Cairo,
Egypt. After living there for 4 years we
came back to India for 3 but clearly the
wanderlust lifestyle became my destiny and
I lived in Switzerland, Philippines, Mozambique
and Angola. Mozambique and
Angola were for 7 years each and perhaps
my love of all things Portuguese began!
I have now been in Portugal for over 13
years and it truly is home. Throughout my
time here, it was not only possible to stay
and live among the locals but also wonderful
to experience and be part of their
education system, culture, food, religions,
work ethics, political orientation, tolerations
and intolerations, arts, sports and everything
else you can imagine.
