Coffee Break

Freshly brewed by Marta Azevedo Silva

The Portuguese people are famous for taking coffee breaks. In the morning, in the afternoon or at the end of the day. There are no rules.
Just between us, many times the expression “let’s have a coffee” is an excuse for us to pause and chitchat.
This is the objective of this newsletter: a triweekly energy boost on EENA’s updates and a recap of what happened in our community for you to read over a coffee.

Horror Tales

Some people take their celebrations way too far. “The scariest place on Halloween isn’t a cemetery or haunted house — it’s the emergency room.”
The Halloween festivities fill the emergency room with a plethora of characters. Most of the people seeking treating arrive “in some sort of costume”. There can be a Spiderman in one room, while the next is occupied by Wonder Woman.
Read here the Halloween tales from the emergency room.
