" Lagoa do Fogo - Fire Lagoon "
“...where one gets the impression that the World should have been like this before Man began to think…”

S. Miguel Island – AZORES – my homeland: one of the nine islands that stretch out in the middle of Atlantic Ocean, between Europe and America.
The discoverer of the Azores was probably Diogo de Silves in 1427, according to the opinion of the historian Damiao Peres. The greatest part of these islands situated in the week link regions that separates the plaques of Europe, Africa and America, resulted from the activity of volcanoes whose craters were lowered , forming the “caldeiras”, hot water tanks, and where everything was once fire and destruction, now there’s an inexpressible beauty that insists in not being framed by a photograph or painting!!!
To belong to an island creates this affection that the island belongs to us, but emigration was always the great drama for all Azoreans: from 1969 to 1974, sixty thousand people left the islands, to return time to time, many of them, richer than their former bosses.
Brazil, United States of America and Canada are the favorite destinations. I left the island in 1961 but I still am known as an islander.
