More pictures from Bahia, this time from Brainpix.

I was very sad to notice that the Brazilian Press treated the visit like it nerver existed. The only time the princes were on tv was on Saturday and just for a brief moment (which I didn't caught:( ). The papers didn't cover it as well. I am hoping that the magazines at least will have something to tell.... well, enough babbling and on with the pictures...

Warm Welcome for prince Felipe and Letizia, the first dignitaries in arriving

Princes Felipe de Borbón and Letizia Ortiz arrived last night, next to hour 22:15, the Radisson Montevideo Victory Seat Hotel, where they were received by hundreds of people whom with cameras of photos and filmadoras they tried to obtain the images of the representing young people of the Spanish royalty. To the shout of "Felipe, Felipe... the multitude obtained, in addition with a demonstrative attitude to great affection towards the princes, who the security yielded a little place for the emotions. It was then when the prince took his accompanied time and from his wife, saluted amiably to the presents, like always, overflowing affection. This warm welcome was preceded by other, not so multitudinal but affectionate, as opposed to Aerial Base N° 1, where they arrived at 21.25. Some people anxiously waited for the exit of the great retinue that accompanied the princes by Asturias.

The first visit was like naval cadet of the Spanish sailboat "Sebastián Elcano", in 1987. The second incursion in our country was in 2000, when it assumed Jorge Batlle. Their heights lodged in one of the special rooms for dignitaries of the Radisson, that is the same one that occupied the Kings of Spain in 1983, when they stayed themselves in this same hotel. In this occasion, due to the height of Felipe (1,97) they had to change the bed by greater, of more than two meters. In addition, the prince is with his plastered right arm.

An INTENSE AGENDA the princes will develop in the present day an intense agenda. In the morning they will maintain meetings at level of government authorities. They will be received by the salient president, Jorge Batlle and as of the noon, they will fulfill the protocolic acts organized by the Embassy of Spain.

From El País:

Prince Felipe met Vázquez



The Prince of Asturias met today the new elected president, Tabaré Vázquez, who will tomorrow take possession of his post, before the Legislative Assembly; an act in which Spain will be represented by Don Felipe and his wife, Doña Letizia. The Prince (who also met today the previous Chief of State, Jorge Batlle) individually gave both the Presidents handwritten messages from the King of Spain. Juan Carlos I congratulates Vázquez for his election, extending the greetings to all the Uruguayan people, for the democratic regularity how the process (through which a socialist president, candidate of the Coalición de Izquierda Frente Amplio, comes up for the first time in the history of Uruguay) took place.

At the meeting with the elected president, celebrated in a hotel of the capital, Don Felipe and Vázquez spoke during 40 minutes about the excellent bilateral relations between Spain and Uruguay, and the way to improve them in all fields.

As usual in this kind of acts, where the Heir to the Throne represents Spain, Don Felipe went to the headquarters of the Presidency, in the House of la Libertad, to meet the previous president, Jorge Batlle, whose taking of possession he also attended, in March 2000. Don Felipe, who has previously represented Spain in 33 takings of possession of Latin American presidents (three of the last ones accompanied by his wife, Doña Letizia), invited the elected president to visit Spain, and thanked for the treatment that he’s receiving from the Uruguayan people.

The Princes de Asturias arrived yesterday in Montevideo (coming from Brazil, where they spent five days in official visits) and hundreds of Uruguayans were waiting for them at the Independence Square, to welcome and greet them.

The welcoming given to the Princes is one more demonstration of the prestige Don Felipe enjoys in this continent, due to the assiduity how he travels to these countries (accompanied since the 22nd of May 2004, when he married Doña Letizia).

After the meetings of Don Felipe with the new and the previous presidents of Uruguay, the Princes of Asturias offered the Spanish community a reception at the embassy of Spain in Montevideo. The residence of the ambassador of Spain in Uruguay, Fernando Valderrama, was the place chosen for the lunch that Don Felipe and Doña Letizia had with the representatives of different Uruguayan sectors, among which there were members of the Church, University, finances, culture and NGOs.

The Princes yet got some time in their tight agenda, to know one the Spanish cooperation projects in Uruguay, related to the farming and forest sector. The Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECI) has given priority to this project, in order to evaluate and promote the agro-alimentary quality of meat and other products, respecting the quality standards asked by the European Union, as well as other productive systems of Uruguay.

From 2000 to 2005, Spain has destined 50 million euros of aid for development in Uruguay, mainly oriented to institutional fortification, cultural cooperation, scholarships of studies and microcredits.

Tonight, the previous president, Jorge Batlle, will offer a farewell reception to the representatives of the countries who went to Montevideo to attend the new taking of possession.

The Princes of Asturias will head the Spanish delegation, in which there will also be the Secretary of State for Foreign and Ibero-American Issues, Bernardino Leon.
Tomorrow the Princes will attend the acts of the taking of possession itself, before returning to Spain, at night.

Perhaps you should try again...
Got it to work. Tried a different browser. It was quite a festive atmosphere there. People dancing and singing and making music. Very nice. Too bad about Felipe´s arm though. Thanks for posting the video.

This is a very long article, so I just translated the main parts of it, as some passages just repeated what you can already read in the articles previously posted:

"How are the Kings?", asked Tabaré Vázquez. The answer of prince Felipe de Borbón did not delay: "Very well, they sent you this", while holding a letter of his parents to the new president. Thus began yesterday the conversation between Vázquez and the Prince of Asturias shortly after 9:00 in the morning, at the Hotel Belmont House, in the heart of Carrasco. Vázquez and Felipe spoke during about 45 minutes, in living-room of the hotel[…]. In the meanwhile, Princess Letizia Ortiz had to wait in the RadissonHotelVictoriaPlaza, for protocol says just the Prince must participate in the meetings with governors. Accompanied by a delegation of more than ten people, Felipe arrived at the hotel dressed in a dark suit, blue tie and striped shirt. He smilingly came out of Mercedes Benz CDI, while Vázquez waited him inside the hotel for about fifteen minutes. […]

Although it was said to the media that Felipe would not speak in public, as the Crown "does not participate in the political debate", the prince left a phrase when coming out from the meeting: "I am pleased to be here and support the change of government". Surrounded by a strong security display, Felipe went to the House of la Libertad, while some cooks took advantage of the situation to greet him from behind the rails of the building and the employees of the hotel took some photos. […]

DELIRIUM. The flag of Spain, planted next to the monument to Artigas, received Felipe at the House of la Libertad, where he met the outgoing president, Jorge Batlle, in the presidential office. Almost one hour later, Felipe left the building, before the applause and shouts of some employees and passers-by. In the meanwhile, the prince thanked once and once again a group of women telling him: «You’re an enchantment, how divine!», «Ciao, my love», «My husband said: what does he have that I don’t? ».

RECEPTIONS. About 1:00 p.m., Felipe arrived at the Embassy of Spain, but this time accompanied by Letizia, that wore a light blue dress and shoes of the same colour. The princess, very thin, is clearly shorter than him, who measures 1,97m. About twenty representatives of the Spanish community - among which there was the president of Cutcsa, Juan Salgado, and the nationalistic leader Antonio Mercader - waited for them in the diplomatic seat, in Pocitos.

One by one, they greeted the princes and then entered a room, where a reception took place.

One hour later, Felipe offered a lunch to ten Uruguayan personalities, between which there were the writer and actor Antonio "Taco" Larreta, monseñor Pablo Galimberti, the director of the University Rafael Guarga, and the pianist Cristina García Banegas.

At night, the Princes of Asturias participated in the cocktail offered by Batlle and they have not predicted activities for today, beyond the official acts of the taking of possession. The couple will return today to Spain.



In the afternoon, the princes went to the Cultural Center of Spain, to inquire about the a series of cooperation projects financed by the Iberian government. The event was covered by a large group of journalists, who tried to catch some words of the royal couple. The mission was difficult, due to strong security measures and to the warning of the ones in charge of public relations, who incessantly repeated that questions were not allowed. The Spanish employees of security even strictly marked the area, where journalists and photographers were authorized to stay. But the reporters of the Uruguayan program Planta Baja (Channel 12) and the Argentinean Caiga quien caiga made-up a way to communicate with the visitors. As they were not allowed to ask them anything, the journalist Rafael Villanueva of Planta Baja exhibited a poster saying: «Jorge Drexler. Oscar 2005». The gesture caused the smiles of the couple. When the journalist asked them if they were happy with the prize to the Uruguayan singer, both agreed and even timidly answered: «enhorabuena».

Letizia just nod, before the question of another reporter. At the end of the meeting, the princes had also to face a cluster of journalists and the presence of many passing-by, but they were surrounded every moment by the Spanish security staff and the Uruguayan police. The security men did not let the press wait within the Center for the end of the meeting, but just on the street.

In spite of the difficulties to approach, the reporter from CQC managed to give Felipe the glasses that characterize the presenters of the program and which are always asked to the guests interviewed by them.

Although the security staff tried to stop the journalist, Felipe gently agreed to take them. The prince did not put them and simply entered his car with them.

Before going away, the princes greeted some children who had approached them, as well as some effusive ladies, who were enchanted by their affection. […]
