I am a single American gentleman in my 70s and am eager to begin an extended stay in The Azores. I'm uncertain just where to begin in getting needed info, but hope someone can help. Here are my questions:
1. The approximate cost and availability of long-term rental of a furnished apartment or small house.
2. I speak only English - would this be a major problem?
3. Availability and cost of basic medical care.
4. Generally speaking, what is the cost of groceries.
5. Immigration issues - how long would I be allowed to stay?
6. Any advice or suggestions would be highly appreciated.
