Traditional Costumes of Porto

on June 25, 2012

This very unique card comes from Maria in the Portuguese city of Porto. She tells me she is a teacher of French and Portuguese and that her local city is Porto – the second biggest in the country. She says she also volunteers in Mozambique where she works on projects for AIDs sufferers which is a job she loves as it helps her appreciate the little things in life – it sounds incredible. In this beautiful and chatty card she also tells me she’s chosen this card as I say on my profile that I love folklore and this shows traditional costume in Porto on 24th of June when they celebrate Saint John’s day in a traditional style. Love this card!
