Maracujá

It might be because we are on vacation, or maybe because we have so seldom been with family since we have children… since we are married…since EVER, or simply because I like it here, but I have been daydreaming a lot of living in the neighborhood lately. This morning I escaped the house briefly (leaving the children with their father, uncle, grand-parents, two dogs and five cats), to walk alone to the grocery store. The walkway along the avenue is very pleasant with red flamboyant trees, yellow Ipê trees and the scent of jasmine or camellia (haven’t found out yet). I felt so happy in the sunshine, the temperature was perfect, warm with a light breeze.

SJC (where my in-laws live) is the perfect sized city, in my opinion. It is large enough to have everything one might need (schools, hospitals and an important industrial and research center), yet not as big as the huge São Paulo. Also at driving distance of the megalopolis : not a bad point for a day trip or picking up someone from the international airport. 😉

When I was still dreaming of coming to Brazil, I wanted to be closer to family but couldn’t exactly imagine myself living too close to them.

Now I can. No problem.

  1. Cette fleur est impressionnante ! Moi, il y a eu des périodes ou j’aurais eu envie d’habiter plus loin de chez mes beaux-parents (ils sont à 10 min de bus). Mais en ce moment, tout va bien !

    • Pour avoir toujours vécu loin de TOUTE famille, ma crainte en venant au Brésil était de me retrouver trop proche des beaux-parents, mais finalement on est encore super loin… 😦

Oi! Tudo bom?
