  • I did in July last year (2018) a historical-family-sentimental script in Portugal, visiting the birthplace of my paternal grandparents, Portuguese. I started by Lavadores, beach that is in Vila Nova de Gaia, Porto City, where my grandmother Maria was born in 1877. We have a photo of 1920, in which my father and his sisters, in season in Portugal, are next to gigantic rocks, on the beach of Lavadores, where it would be the home of my grandmother's family. One day I discovered, on the internet, that the stones still exist there. I wished to visit the place, and, thank God, I was there! First, a stop in one of the caves of Gaia, in front of the river Douro, to taste a magnificent port wine and buy a small stock to bring to Brazil, then cross the city to reach the Lavadores, on the Oceanic coast. A wonderful view, good place to walk. Beach with lots of rocks, brought even little ones, souvenir!, beautiful buildings in front, restaurants and bars. It was in the morning and, after fast circulated, I followed my grandfather's land.
