In week 48 of 2023, I travelled to and arrived in Rio de Janeiro on the cruise ship Costa Favolsa and spent 5 days there before flying home.

Week 48 of 2023.

Monday, 27th November.

Today was my first full day in Brazil, and as my leg was aching a bit I stayed around the hotel or sat on Copacabana Beach opposite.

Today was the day I left  Rio de Janeiro to fly back to Madrid in Spain.

Saturday, 2nd December.

Today I arrived back in Madrid. I said goodbye to Gail at the airport, and as she flew back home, I got on a train back to Torre Pacheco to be picked up by June, who then took me back to my apartment.

Sunday, 3rd December.

Today was spent recovering at home after my holiday. I woke up at around 10 am with a cold and had to start popping pills for a cough. I put some washing in the washing machine, unpacked my case and generally began to get used to returning to my home.

In the afternoon, I watched some TV and some football but spent most of it asleep on the sofa under a blanket before going to bed at about 10 pm.
