What a unique birthdayApril 25 in Portugal ⋅ 🌧 18 °C
Today is my birthday. And It is not raining yet. (Will come this afternoon).
I started the day by giving myself a present, three Jelly snakes in memory of good old times with my daughters when they would bring me such snakes from the kiosk. This used to be heaven on earth for me 😃
As I marched on whether got worse and worse with thunder all around. And then it broke! In buckets. Within seconds I was soaked and the rest of the day was rain.
When I got to Grandola I met a young man in an alley who looked as if he could speak English. It was Markus Müller a well traveled international who two years ago decided that Germany is going to Hit the wall, sold everything and build a house in Portugal
Markus invited me in and then turned my birthday into a memorable Event by cooking a wonderful dinner. And for the first time in this trip I was able to have a real conversations with someone accompanied by wonderful wine, then Sake, and then to finish us off, half a bottle of Medronio a killer Schnaps.
God bless you Markus. ❤Read more
