I feel like I’ve disappeared lately. The truth is that lots of things have been happening here and I haven’t had much time to be online. Going back about a month ago I was having a problem with my eyes due to excessive hours online. My eyes are now much better but we have been bogged down here by things to do and fighting against the bureaucracy here.
Portugal has been cold. I mean cold for Portugal. Parts of Portugal have had minus temperatures but Lisbon has been down to about 4c as far as I remember. The days are mostly sunny and the afternoons warm and up to about 16c in the sunshine. We have been trying to move into a larger apartment but no luck so far. It’s the terrible bureaucracy which is against us. We will have to rent somewhere soon because of our changing circumstances. I am trying to find somewhere which is within walking distance to Kumar’s workplace so that he can save his transport costs. We’ll worry about the girls when they get jobs.
Am I the only person left who has never been to Starbucks ? People are amazed to hear that but it’s true. I’ve never been nor wanted to go. I don’t drink much coffee and usually have a strong preference for tea. I also have quite a preference for eating and drinking at home except of course when I’m travelling or touring.
