I'm finding it very, very difficult to work this week! I've lived here for a long time and there's never been anything even remotely close to this. I work from home, and yet on my one quick walk to the shops to buy milk, I met two Serbians, an Italian and almost got run over by a bus full of Brazilians. There are flags hanging from every window, and the noise... wow! It's very exciting, can't wait for Friday!
