I miss a lot of things, but it’s more about the places, the vibe, and the way to live.
Maybe I feel warmer than the Europeans. For example, I met a friend from Austria and her family during Christmas time. When I saw them I hugged and kissed them warmly, as we do in Brazil. This is unusual here. I don’t miss this at all, but I know that it’s different. I’m just maybe learning to appreciate all the differences. I can say anything special that I like from Brazil, for example, açai, but I can buy it in the market. And of course, I miss my family and friends. But now I feel more and more from here, the place that I chose to live in.
Here in Faro I can see a lot of potential to create things that make a small difference. Moreover, security has the highest priority for me. It’s relieving to go out while looking at my phone or wear all the things that I want to wear, because in Brazil you can be scared sometimes.
