We have now been back in Europe, Spain to be exact, for one day and people are wondering how it feels… Well, like we are in Spain on holidays 😉 which is actually true since O is not [officially] working this week. Maybe it will feel different next week when we arrive to Brussels and start re-adapting to life in Belgium with all that it includes (bank appointments, house visits, job hunting and most important: meeting up with friends!!).
It was definitely sad to leave Puerto Rico and I think that both of us felt a little numb when driving to the airport on Sunday evening after a last fika (coffee) with our best friend B. We had planned to meet up with her at Borders for our usual Sunday ritual but it was closed since it was Easter Sunday, so we had to go to La España bakery instead. O announced to the whole [Spanish] staff there that it was our last coffee in Puerto Rico!!
Our last days in the Caribbean were spent relaxing on the beach & by the pool, saying goodbye to friends (and meeting two sets of French parents!), having a last stroll in the Old San Juan and the final “pollo con arroz y habichuelas” (chicken with rice and beans), and “quesito y cafe con leche” (Puerto Rican pastry with cream cheese and coffee with milk)…
O is already going back to Puerto Rico in less than two weeks’ time but I have no idea when I will be back to la isla del encanto (enchanted island)… Hopefully one day soon, because I know that I will miss both the island and our wonderful friends.
