12 June, 2001 I entered this Iberian country to visit my boyfriend and see the country and leave. I only thought about visiting, not staying for a long time. Exactly after nine years I am still here, married with two girls. You can see the stamp in my passport:
I was in Lisbon this morning and the city was preparing its Festas de Santo Antonio. Special seats for guests and celebraties were prepared. Marchas Populares, popular parades will pass through these seats from Alfama, one of the oldest Lisbon districts. At the end of the parade there would be couples married on this day, who will parade in their wedding dresses.
