365 Photo Project – Week 21

We’re really starting to feel at home here in our new city. We know where things are, we have made some new friends, we’re relaxing into the routine of Brian’s work schedule and the rhythm of life in the hotel. Why not shake it up a bit?

After all, when you’re living in a hotel there are only so many ways you can spend your hours once you’ve thoroughly explored the area. Can you tell I’ve been on Pinterest a bit?

Although I can say it’s been really fun to go to our local pub and meet up with our new friends. It’s nice to go to a bar and find someone who knows your name after all, and we happen to like these people quite a bit.

But the day had to arrive.

Moving day!

After only a month or so of apartment hunting and contract complications, we got our keys to our new home on Friday. We have arrived!

And now we have a new neighborhood to explore, including a big cathedral, a train station, a big open market and quite a few shops. I haven’t seen a park yet, but I’ll try to find one.

Today we found the local farmer’s market and we were not disappointed! There were dozens of tables selling everything from fish to tools. We found grass fed, organic eggs, tons of good local produce and even some figs. I’ll be back most weekends for sure.

Not only did we have a great week, we ended it today with an even better encounter. After reading her blog for three years, I finally got to meet Megan (of Born Again Brazilian fame) in person. Her family drove out from Sao Paulo to spend the afternoon with us and we had a fantastic time. This, this is one of the things I love most about the internet. These online connections that turn into real life connections which never would have had a chance to happen without the great big web.

Thanks for a fun afternoon!

So what have you done to shake things up this week? Tried a new jogging route? Shopped at a different grocery store? Asked a new friend out for coffee?

Add your link below, and share a photo that shows what you’ve been up to.

 

Make sure to go visit the other bloggers’ links and leave a comment, and please link back to this post as well so others can share too.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

      Thanks! I think we’ll be very happy here. We’re settling in, getting to know a few of the neighbors, and learning our way around the local area. So far so good!
