Close, but not quite. The first bit - <naDev *Portugal Hol jatlhlu' je> - is
fine. The problem is <'e' Daj>. <Daj> is a verb meaning either "be
interesting" or "test inconclusively". You were obviously going for "be
interesting", but the thing that is interesting must be the *subject*, and
<'e'> can only be the object. Also, the <'e' vIQub> is fine here, but not
very good Klingon style. We know you're stating what you think, so there's
no need to qualify your statement like this. Here's what I would do:
naDev *Portugal Hol jatlhlu' je. Daj.
I just made the statement and then commented that it was interesting.

This should of course be <vIDab>.

> vengmey tIn Daj law' vengvam Daj puS vIQub.
You need to add <'e'> before <vIQub>.
Where are you willing to return to?
