Peeing in public

It's strange what you learn sometimes. I met an Irish girl named Sive that works in the hostel I stayed at in Porto. She and I had some interesting conversation over the last few days and she took me out drinking to the local cafe (which she called the center of the universe because everyone goes there before going out) every night after midnight when she finished her work hours.

After that cafe she would take me to another bar that closes later in the night (4am). The 2nd place was a dark little bar with some chairs where it seemed only locals would go. The sign on the door of the bar was about 3 inches x 2 inches large.

2 nights ago she took me and a girl named Sarah (from Kentucky) to a dance venue after we drank together in the hostel. It had 2 floors, reggae and R&B. It was another place where it would be hard to tell it was a nightspot unless you already knew about it.

Yesterday evening we were talking and she told me in most European countries it's illegal for a man to urinate in public but it's ok for a woman because of medical reasons such as the possibility of a ruptured spleen and other infections. Did you know this? I didn't.

ah...like it's not equally deadly for the dudes once the seal is broken.
