On Monday, I went with Irene to the Habitat construction site and who descends from the bus to greet me but Ricardo!!! There is no greeting like the kind you get in Portugal =) The weather was amazing, the sun was out, the wind was brisk and it was such a lovely day to be outside and doing something active. Why not participate - this was such a nice group of young people!! So off I go in my little blouse from Paris pouring massa (concrete), digging holes and heaving tons of shovelfuls of concrete halfway across the construction site.
It was such a good time, the family even made a HUGE lunch for us - fries, pork, salad, fruit, coffee, rice and this wonderful cornbread! It was such an improvement over our crap cantina that we had to eat in 2 years ago!! And the vistas were BEAUTIFUL. Man walking around the contruction site and look into the distance reminded me how gorgeous Portugal was. Unbelievable, this place!!
