Did you permanently leave the country or are you just vacationing in Europe?

I still have my condo in Caracas but I'm more than "vacationing in Europe." The solution for Venezuela, painful as it may be, is total collapse so they have nothing left to steal. Hopefully people will have learned not to vote "rojo-rojito" (red and redder). It's hard to believe that 20 years ago people were stupid enough to vote massively (70%) for a military man who had staged a failed coup that left lots of people dead. But then, Germans did the same in the 1930s. Believing in messiahs can be extremely harmful.

While I did not leave permanently, I'm liking Porto more and more! Today I noticed that most stores when they close do not have roll up shutter doors! Just glass! Says a lot about the sanity of the place. And they take their gardening seriously, beautiful greenery and flowers everywhere.
