Luis, I went to "Members" and did an advanced search for members listing Portugal as their country.

http://www.tudiabetes.org/profiles/members/search?name=&gender=&q14=&country=PT&location=&q20=&q21=&q29=&q30=&q26=

feel free to leave all 19 members a comment and also use Portuguese if you wish. I know Manny usually likes the volunteers and ambassadors to have been members for some time, and you just joined. I'm so glad you like it here!

hey, did you get the second pump when you got your Spirit?
