We literally walk around to all different places, City hall, bank offices, Freguesia do Coto, Financias and back again, with our whole life in a binder. You never know what kind of information they might want or need. Names of our parents, that we are married, own a property here in Portugal, don´t own a property in Sweden, have funds, can support ourselves, own a company in Portugal, live where we live, proof of that, shoe size and much more. The last bit about the shoe size was false, sorry. But all documents must be stamped and signed. That is the most important thing, the stamps.
|Our lives in there|
Today we went to Caldas (again) to go to the bank to ask for a much needed document (according to the people at City Hall). The bank didn´t have a clue what kind and neither did we. "Take all you got" said Lars, "And don´t forget to stamp them" We got more papers to put in our binder.
Then we went to get our photographs taken. After that we were so tired so we went to have lunch. On the way we saw all sorts of pretty trees in full bloom.
