Kings receive in hearing the expeditionary XXth Route Quetzal
The Kings received today in hearing, in the Palace of The Dun one, to more than three hundred expeditionary young men who this year take part in the Route Quetzal BBVA, in its 20th edition.
Young men and women of Latin America, The United States and Canada, of all the countries of the European Union and of other three with which Spain supports narrow historical links - Equatorial Guinea, The Philippines and Morocco-, and that for three weeks have crossed Peru.
The Route XX Quetzal BBVA will conclude next 29th in the Museum Guggenheim of Bilbao, where the members of an expedition will receive a diploma that will certify their participation in this initiative put in march by Michael de la Quadra Salcedo.
(...)
Don Juan Carlos and doña Sofía greeted one by one to more than three hundred members of an expedition, after the Queen was given an edition of the 'Quijote' in Greek and the King was receiving, of Miguel de la Quadra Salcedo's hands, a letter that there have written to him four nuns Basque nuns of the order of St Clara who live for thirty years in Ayacucho.
The members of an expedition, many of them dressed in typical suits of their countries, sang for the Kings a Mexican song of the XVIIth century and other one in suahili, that dona Sofía accompanied touching palms.

The president of Portugal, Jorge Sampaio, received the Kings on their arrival to the archipelago of Açores, which Don Juan Carlos and Doña Sofía are visiting for the first time.

At 12h50 local time (14,50 Spanish hour), the airplane 'Falcon 900' of the Spanish Air Force (that transported the Kings from Mallorca, their summer residence) landed at the Aerial Base of Lajes, in the Island Terceira, the first stage of this private visit.

As soon as the monarchs set foot on land, Jorge Sampaio and his wife, Maria José Ritta, received their guests to this three-day visit to this archipelago, an ultra-peripheral region of the European Union, located in the middle of the Atlantic, about 1500 kilometres far from Lisbon. There were affectionate greetings between both couples, who are united by a long narrow friendship.

Sampaio, knowing that Açores was the only place of Portugal which the Kings did not visit yet, organized the trip before leaving the presidency of the Republic (in March of 2006), and he will personally show them the natural beauties of these volcanic islands of tempered climate.

At the Aerial Base of Lajes, there were also the minister of the Republic in Açores, Álvaro Laborinho Lucio, Carlos Manuel Martins Do Vale César (president of the Regional Government, as Açores and Madeira are the only Portuguese territories that have the status of independent regions), Jose Pedro Cardoso (mayor of Angra do Heroísmo, the capital of Island Terceira) and the ambassador of Spain, Enrique Panés.

Terceira is the third island regarding surface (403 kilometres square) and the second one, as far as population is concerned (little more than 55000 inhabitants), among the nine islands of the archipelago, where more than 250000 people live. The nine islands are divided in three groups: the Eastern group (São Miguel - the greatest and more populated island - and Santa Maria), the central group (Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial) and the western group (Flores and Corvo).

Today the Kings will be in Angra do Heroísmo (capital of Terceira) and tomorrow they will visit Faial and Pico, where they will contemplate the mountain which bears the same name and that is highest of Portugal, with 2352 meters high.

The stay of the Kings in Açores will be concluded on Friday, with a visit to the Furnas (São Miguel), one of the many zones of volcanic craters, ferruginous water lagoons and exuberant vegetation of the archipelago, one of the most humid and warm points of the islands.
