Today is a holiday celebrating business owners. It’s always on the third Monday of October. It’s also Doctors Day, however, Doctor’s Day is always on October 18. There are so many holidays here! I can hardly keep up. All of the stores are closed today. If they do not close for the holiday they have to pay hefty fines as a consequence.
It’s really dark, rainy and cool today. It’s been a really quiet day of reading, writing, studying and thinking. Gosh, verbs are so difficult. I’m memorizing irregular verbs in the present, the preterite, etc. Wander is going to help me tonight. It’s been a little bit of a challenge and while my Spanish sometimes gets in the way, it’s been an extremely helpful tool in understanding Portuguese.
