Essentially, having the perspective of someone who had grown up and become more complete as a person after all these new experiences, the diversity of landscapes, the different smells and dealing with people who were different, with different ideas about life but at the same time having much in common. The story ends with the arrival in Lisbon, returning to the Fado with which it all began, in the Eternal Return to something that he always was, because in truth, “we are what memories allow” ...
