man down

above is the first casualty of drying our clothes in the style of the old world. you can see my black sock on the roof below, i’m sure it won’t be the last. they don’t have clothes dryers here, so every weekend little old portuguese grandmas and young people all hoist their flags of sheets, socks and red underwear. 

we’ve been busy the last few weeks with moving, working and visitors. during that time the things that seemed very foreign to us when we arrived have started to feel a bit more normal.

in a few hours we are flying to madrid so we can pick up e’s work visa on monday morning. once we have the work visa it can be exchanged for a residence card here which will make us real (temporary) citizens of portugal. which means we can finally get a car.

    You shall have to fly the missing man formation today (one sock) to honor the fallen hero.
