For those of you who haven’t heard yet, I’m officially GOING HOME for Christmas. Oops, I ruined the surprise, but I’m pretty excited about it. I’ll get to see all of you, relax, enjoy a good ol’ American/Portuguese Christmas, and etc. I bought my flights today, first to the Azores, so I can visit family and see the island and from there, home. I’ll have some super long layovers, but what’s travel without waiting around? Plus, at least I wont’ have to rush.
Also exciting: I went to a craft show yesterday which had stuff from a lot of local artists. Apparently it happens every month and I’m pretty sure I’m going back in December.
I saw the Facebook movie (in English); first time going to the movie theatres here. I liked the movie, but hated 99% of the characters.
I bought drumsticks. This may have been a bad decision, but (apparently) I’ve been talking about wanting to learn how to drum all semester and the other day, I finally went into a music store and bought them (after doing some price shopping). It was pretty exciting when I bought them, but then I got home and tried to use them and remembered my total lack of rhythm and musical skills in general. Oops. Maybe practice makes perfect?
I found a kebab place in Lisbon. I had a kebab for the first time in Rome, and it was amazing and I decided I needed to find some place in Lisbon to get one. I did, and it was alright, not as good as the first one, and I’m not entirely convinced it was an actual kebab. But what did this kebab come with? French fries. Yes, you can get french fries with so many things here.
