Jamaica

Dear friends,

Those who lived their youths at the same time of mine have known and danced the calypso that was brought to Brazil in the voice of Harry Belafonte.

Jamaica Farewell was just another one of his hits of contagious rhythm…

Years later I was touched hearing that song recorded by Belafonte at the Carnigie Hall when he was already a mature singer.  It was such tenderness that woke me up - and that I keep with me still today - that I could not avoid paying homage to him and "his Jamaica" the way I have learned to express my feelings.

I believe you will also let be touched by it.

Always my affection and thankfulness for the prestige and encouragement that, generously, you have granted me,
Delza

Coimbra, Portugal

Coimbra.

Yes, Coimbra.

Although a granddaughter of a Lisboan grandmother and having one of my dearest virtual friends living and loving the city of Porto, I chose Coimbra.

It was so because in my heart Portugal is only one, and for having always admired the traditions of the University of Coimbra, I could not resist the temptation to format that city.

To research the immeasurable treasure that its Library is gave me a kind of devotion by so much beauty, art and culture it shelters.

I hope you enjoy "my" Coimbra.

With the ever affection to you all, dear friends,
Delza
