European preview: Adventures in not speaking Portuguese

Countdown to Portugal: 21 days.

In the pursuit of an organic, kosher bakery, I found myself in need of figuring out what
Segunda a Sexta: 08:00h às 14:30h e 16:30h às 19:00h
meant. I was certain it was a set of dates, but which?

This was a case for a battle of the titans. I entered the phrase "Segunda a Sexta" into Yahoo's Babelfish. The official translation: "Second a Sixth".

Up second was Google Translate, which offered the translation "Monday to Friday".

Google 1, Yahoo 0.
