We've lived in this country for over 500 days now.
I guess it's safe to say we have a "new normal". What I mean is daily things that used to be strange are completely normal now.
Like wearing sweaters and jackets in the "summer". It's normal to freeze in July and the cherry blossoms blooming.
Apartment life in the middle of the city with construction and loud traffic. This is our door. I like it.
Some things are similar... but I always drink peach juice with my quarter pounder meal (not so normal).
The pizza... it's good. I used to hate it. Yes, I even like the eggs on top.
No English translation needed for most things. Life happens in Portuguese.
