⚽️ On top of everything else, it’s also game day. Hello, Turkey!

A small statue adorned with a crown and a scarf, standing on a ledge draped with a Portuguese flag that partially reads “ACREDITO.” In the background, there is a blurred display of pastries and a white coffee cup with a saucer. A cake decorated with toy animal figures, including a lion, leopard, and their cubs. The cake has white frosting, chocolate sprinkles, and some greenery. A small gold balloon with the number “5” is also present.

🎉 Made it through another week.

Saturday will be filled with parties, on top of lunch with Mom&Dad. A party for tinyMovieStar, another for the bigger movieStar. None for me, but I get to attend both.

🎉 We met again today! At the Parliament.

A person performing a headstand on a red carpeted grand staircase inside an ornate, historic building with tall arched windows and intricate architectural details. The scene is illuminated by natural light coming through the large, decorated windows.

👀 Walking some more.

A pastel pink building with white-framed windows and ornate black iron railings on the first floor. The roof has multiple chimneys and is tiled. A wooden door serves as the entrance, and the facade includes a circular window on the right side. A person with curly, light-colored hair is wearing a dark coat and carrying a black bag, walking down a narrow, sunlit street. The image is taken from behind.

@val Good thing English verbs are easy. If they were doing this with our own, the font size would have to be MUCH smaller, we have thousands of tenses!

👀 Yesterday’s show was at a high school.

A black-and-white mural depicting three people in suits engaged in a conversation. The background features intricate Asian characters and symbols, adding an artistic and cultural element to the scene. The style has a vintage, comic-strip aesthetic. A staircase with each step labeled with different verbs in their base form, past simple, and past participle tenses. Examples include “drink, drank, drunk,” “build, built, built,” and “be, was/were, been."

👀 A friend asked me to get some photos of her show. I did. Pretty boring day, except for that.

A wooden sculpture composed of two vertically stacked, unfinished cylindrical shapes. A metal ring with an orange translucent center is placed on top of the upper cylinder. The background features a white wall with a red circular element. A multi-story concrete building with numerous windows and a section painted in pink. In the foreground, there is an outdoor area with lined markings for running lanes, suggesting a sports or play area. The sky is partly cloudy. A metal fence covered in green ivy, with a green trash bin attached to it. On the wall below, there is graffiti featuring a smiling orange face and other abstract designs. The background shows a hilly landscape under a cloudy sky. A single, twisted, and weathered piece of driftwood against a plain, light-colored background.

☕️ It’s that time of the year.

A nearly empty plastic cup with a black straw, labeled “the coffee.” The cup is placed on a wooden table with a blurred background. The label also displays a website URL, “www.thecoffee.jp,” and several city names, including “Tokyo”.

If you’d like to help refill this coffee, feel free to visit my “coffee” page. You can get me a coffee, or one hundred coffees! Or even become a sponsor of someone at the One a Month Club.

There’s also Gumroad, if that’s your thing.

Thanks!

🍺 More than a month later, we finally managed to sync our calendars, and had a beer. Or two.

Four glasses of amber-colored beer on a dark table outdoors, in a narrow, sunlit alley, with buildings in the background.

🗼 Summer is getting close. You can tell by the increase of foreigners out and about.

A colorful display of Lisbon-themed souvenirs featuring multiple designs of ceramic tiles and magnets. These items prominently showcase iconic yellow trams, historic buildings, and scenic views of Lisbon, Portugal, with text that says “Lisboa” and “Portugal”.

Also, our first game on the championship, starting in five minutes.

A man with short hair is walking down a street, wearing a shirt with a colorful graphic design and the word “APERONALDO” printed on the back. He has tattoos on his arms and is holding a red, white, and green flag.

@samgrover Those are nice! I can no longer wear such big ones, but I did in the past, and it was great! 😊 What will your next one look like?

@maique

@samgrover I find myself wearing the Apple Watch less and less. This past month not at all, since I couldn’t even find the energy to charge it (pun very much intended). I would occasionally wear a nicer watch, but then just gave those up as well, since we spent so much time fighting for space, bumping and wrestling, I just went full G-Shock. That is part of the beauty (for me) of these: super light, never have to take them off. They’ll be on my wrist when I’m sleeping, showering, struggling in a melee with other photographers, at the beach, or riding a scooter over bumpy terrain.

@odd Thanks for asking, sir. It’s not perfect, yet. If I’m walking, and it warms up, mostly fine. Side movement still hurts, and when I wake up as well. Waiting a few more days before going to the doctor.

@jimmitchell That is an “imperial” (or “fino” if you’re in the north of the country). Ice cold, and small enough so it never turns hot, or stale. One, obviously, has a lot of them, and they’re always perfect.

It’s a hot country and, in my opinion, it’s one of our greatest inventions. Tourists usually ask for bigger ones, until they spot a local having these. They’re 20cl.
