Last week was our last week in Nazaré and there were some ups and downs. We started school again after our two-week vacation, were shocked by the insurgency at the US Capitol building, were elated to see the results of the Georgia senate race, celebrated the (final!) declaration of President-elect Biden, explored our feelings about returning to Germany at the end of this trip, celebrated Steffen’s birthday and were very, very cold in the apartment as temperatures dropped and there was no heating. What a week! It felt like a month….
We used Steffen’s birthday as an excuse to make one final trip down to the beach. We all agreed Nazaré treated us well and were happy to have spent five weeks there!
We spent Saturday cleaning and packing and were on our way early Sunday morning. Due to coronavirus restrictions we knew we had to be at our next destination by 1pm on Sunday afternoon. We ended up arriving at the house at 12:47pm. Whew! Just made it.
