(Podem ler este artigo em Português aqui. Podéis leer este artículo en Español aquí.)

Hi there everyone! After some really different Christmas vacations, I’m back!

My mum, my little brother and my stepfather came to visit us and we had a blast! Finally I have an Instagram account, so you can follow me and see what we’ve been doing these past few days.

But there’s something apart from our Christmas vacations that I want to tell you about. I would like to talk about all the handmade Xmas gifts that I gave and received.

So, let’s start with the t-shirt I gave my husband Joaquim. I have a couple of friends living and working in Berlin that started not long ago a really cool and original project. Joana and Emma, from Raubdruckerin, take a manhole cover and stamp it in t-shirts, bags and other stuff. Yes, you red it right! Those metal sewage covers that we see in the ground all over the city. We love Berlin and their idea seemed so cool to me that I decided to give one of their t-shirts to my husband. He loved it!!! In fact, it was his favorite gift!

 Berlin’s manhole covers are super nice because they have the main buildings of the city on them. Go and visit Raubdruckerin’s Facebook page, you will love it!
