I got my official European Union/Portugal passport today! So it’s all official! I didn’t think I’d be quite so excited and proud, but I am.
My aunt sent me a great email congratulating me, and within it a message with deep meaning:
Congratulations on being Portuguese; and remember Prince Henry, Vasco da Gama, the Padeira Aljubarrota and many other heroes who had no fear. You belong to that group.
