Presentation Portugal Corrigido

  1. 1. European Time In a capsule
  2. 2. European Time In a capsule Europe lies, reclining upon her elbows: From East to West she stretches, staring, And romantic tresses fall over Greek eyes, reminding.   The left elbow is stepped back; The other laid out at an angle. The first says Italy where it leans; This one England where, set afar, The hand holds the resting face.   Enigmatic and fateful she stares Out West, to the future of the past By Fernando Pessoa Introduction
