Unfortunatelly, I don't have my own pictures. I went to Palácio da Ajuda, but since there were the heads of state, the level of security would very high. So, I talked to the police and explained that I just wanted a tiny little picture, that they could see if I had any dangerous material and that I could even go with a policeman :lol: Obviously they told me I couldn't pass mostly because of the personal guards of the heads of State. Well, sad me was going to leave when I decided I would be waiting before the Palace. And so I spent an hour and an half waiting!! First I saw the President and his wife, then I saw Lula da Silva... and when I saw the last bus, I was nearly hopeless, and it stops right in front of me. I start looking at it and i saw....... Zapatero!! And I started pointing and then I saw the King and then THE QUEEN! :rofl::biggrin: Actually I started paying more attention because of her hair :tongue: I mean she always has her hair done like that, and I saw her head moving and I thought "but that is her hair!" and then I saw her :wub: ahahah
They stand in front of me for almost 5 minutes!! The three of them were talking and looking at us and then when they were leaving Zapatero waved.
The bad thing of all this "adventure" is that I'm still frozen!! :lol:

However, this adventure doesn't end today! Tomorrow, the ladies are going to a museum and since there are no heads of State, I hope I can take a little picture :rofl:
So don't lose the next episode :lol:!

P.S. I'm sorry for all this enthusiasm but I'm too excited :biggrin: After four years, I finally saw her :wub: ahahah

Elsa M. 11-30-2009 06:10 PM

Great story, Juanita!
Looking forward to see the pictures, then ;)

Good luck!


A video from this afternoon:

Juanita 11-30-2009 06:16 PM

Thank you, Elsa :)
I hope I can take them, today was imposible, but I think that tomorrow will be easier because it works almost as a "state visit", I mean, they are closer to the people than today.
I'll sleep with my fingers crossed :lol:

Juanita 11-30-2009 06:30 PM

Can you see the video, Elsa?
Because I can't, it stays forever in the end of the advertisment :ermm:
