Lisboa que amanhece
O primeiro dia
Amor, morte, poesia, política, actualidade, futebol, efemérides, solidão, paz, humor, musica...tudo e nada; Here we talk about life, love, death,
On this day in History, poetry, politics, football (soccer), solitude, peace, humour, music ... nothing and all.
«BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors. With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. This way, all blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs».
So, here goes my recommendations (only blogs not mentioned until now in this blog):
