In the Restaurant "Esquina de Alfama" it was possible to find a group of Fadistas that animate the night with their voices and guitars, to the point that we feel confused between the traditional and the shine of the mobile phones that appear in the hands of the visitors anxious to take with themselves a bit of the atmosphere of the restaurant.
We feel a peace that invades us by the unexpected way Fado takes care of us, there in the middle of the Old Lisbon, surrounded by modernity. Not far away, during the day, you can see huge boats that are full of tourists from all over the world. These boats are adventurers of the seas, of a capacity far superior to the Titanic. Its immense dimension rivals the depth of what we feel in places so small and filled with music but so great in history and quality.
We know that the public often does not understand the lyrics, but that does not matter to anyone. The music imposes itself without further ado and all of us there commune with a state of soul that fills us with dreams, pieces of past that only existed as an approximation between what we imagined and what really was ...
So, packed with melody and the famous trill of guitars, a common place so often remembered, we almost forgot to taste the food on the tables, right there in front of us. It is also of immense quality, it is also full of flavors with millennial stories ... And in the end, nothing better than a visit in a day of peace.

Rogo-te:

Que me tomes e sejas pura
Como o teu sentir irreal
De olhar e sorrizos de ternura
Beatífica e Primaveril, não banal

Ai o teu sorrizo intemporal! Fora de tempo!
Que me deixa perdido no labirinto ensanguentado
do meu coração como se eu vivesse acorrentado!

Sim! Deixa-me ser a tua luz polarizada!
O teu teste óptico chamado de polarimetria!
Ser a tua molécula enantiomérica geminada!
Usando apenas a luz brilhante da alegria!

Ah! Amor meu, amor meu!
Haverá alguém capaz de me resgatar deste inferno
que não tenha um sorrizo imaculado como o teu?

Rogo-te: livra-me deste Fado...

 

Notas do autor:
A polarimetria é uma técnica não destrutiva de medição das propriedades ópticas das moléculas que se baseia na polarização da luz. Os enantiómeros são moléculas com a capacidade de rodar o plano da luz polarizada.

Certainly one of the most interesting places in Lisbon!

Certamente um dos locais mais interessantes de Lisboa!

Fado is everywhere!

O Fado está em todo o lado!
