José Hermano Saraiva

 A memória de José Hermano Saraiva (1919-2012)

Um grande e cativante contador e divulgador da nossa História! Obrigada, Sr Professor!

Qualquer que seja o futuro, continuará a haver noites de luar, a Serra de Sintra e o Tejo a correr para o Mar.

I found Fado in a Naarden's store

If you are visiting the Netherlands, Naarden deserves a visit for sure.

Naarden is an example of a star fort, with fortified walls and a moat. So, don't miss the opportunity to visit this 17th century fortress with great panoramic views!

From Naarden 2012

This town is beautiful by foot or by bike. A very green area, situated in the richest area of The Netherlands-'T Gooi- with large villas covered with culm. I'm sure you will enjoy your day!

This is the building of the Stadhuis (The City Hall )

Naarden's pretty streets are full of lovely details...

During our stroll with our cousins, we found a store selling very pretty bags. When we came in, we realized that Portuguese music was being played. The Dutch owner of the store has been in the south of Portugal and she became in love for our Fado. She showed us the several CD's she has already bought from Mariza, Cristina Branco and Amália. How nice is that?:-))

From Naarden 2012

This Amália's song- but sung by Cristina Branco- started playing when I was trying to pay for my bag. Tears came to my eyes, I couldn't avoid it. I love this song, and especially when we are away from our country, to listen "If a seagull would come and brought me Lisbon's sky..." it was too strong for me...

" Se uma gaivota viesse
Trazer-me o céu de Lisboa..."
