Anonymous said: oh, seems lovely. I've only been to the North once, I stayed in Porto for a couple of days but didn't get to see much :' are you off to uni this year, then?
Porto is a beautiful city indeed, but I´ve been there just a few times.
For the next year I hope, in Lisbon. I would love to be an art director, a curator… Could you stop being an anonymous?
Anonymous said: awesome, will do. my nan was portuguese, so while I couldn't put together a sentence to save my life, I'm able to understand it fairly well. whereabouts in portugal are you from?
I´m from a little northern village, very green one, in Guarda. However during the school period, I move to the city of Viseu.
Anonymous said: my portuguese is a bit rusty, but I think I got the gist of it :) out of curiosity, are there any portuguese poets I should definitely check out?
Fernando Pessoa is one of my favorites so far, not only because of his poems but personality. I think he was an extraordinary human being. He wrote some poems in english.
Florbela Espanca, Cesário Verde and Almada Negreiros (which was also an important painter of portuguese modernist painting).
Anonymous said: any chance you could publish some of your own poetry?
Sure. However I use to write poetry in portuguese, my native language. I could try to translate one.
I appreciate your atention. Thank you.
I hope you like, it means a lot to me.

My first impression as a photographer. I´m so grateful to my beautiful cousin for her patience in front of my lens.
