We had a great Christmas Day here and it all happened with almost no preparation because we had very little time to prepare for anything and finally when I found some free time to go out, the shops had mostly closed down for the Christmas break.
Today we were accompanied by our friends Estela (left) and Kiki (right). Estela is originally from Kunming in China and Kiki is originally from Osaka in Japan. We had lots of fun and laughter and Kumar cooked us a nice dinner of chicken cordon bleu, mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts, peas, carrots and gravy, accompanied by a fresh salad and a bottle of excellent, ice cold sparkling wine.
My apartment in Portugal is much too small so we are very restricted for our guests and friends. Nevertheless we have been taking AirBNB guests since early this year which helps bring in some money to pay the bills. We can only take two guests at a time mostly and to do this, Kumar has to sleep on a floor mattress in the sitting room. We are much too crowded but we manage it well somehow and get almost 100% of 5 star reviews from our guests.
When we can move to a larger home, we want to invite many more friends to come here to stay with us.
