Last week most of the remaining restrictions were lifted. On Sunday I watched my home team play soccer in a sold out stadium for the first time in 583 days. It felt like magic, the whole neighborhood leaving the bars and marching with drums, flags and flares through the streets to the stadium. During the pandemic I've almost forgotten why I enjoy living here. Not anymore. For my birthday in February of 2020 my brother gave me tickets for the season premiere, which never happened. Since then he's moved away, but hopefully we can go together next year.
