What a great series!

I was just about 11-12 years old when "Verano azul" passed for the first time on Portuguese TV. They passed once a week, during weekends. I saw the first episode and immediately got seduced by the characters and the story. I saw all episodes until the end of the series and when that end came I felt sorry to realize that I would no longer be able to keep seeing Julia, Chanquete, Pancho, Javi, Bea, etc. Anyway, Portuguese TV passed the series again in the following years and I saw it over and over again. I've been looking for a long time to buy it on DVD, but can't find it here in Portugal. Hope I can get it soon, to see it again. They just don't make that kind of series anymore.
