Excelente tour por los highlights de Belem, Lisboa, conducido por Ric(k) ardo Garces. Simpatía y profesionalidad a partes iguales. El conocimiento cuasi-enciclopedico de Ricardo, va de lo global al detalle, y es producto de su interés por todo lo que rodea a los lugares que muestra, en el espacio (interactuacion de piedras, edificios y monumentos consigo mismos, con Belem, con Lisboa, con Portugal, y con su antiguo imperio marítimo) y sobre todo en el tiempo, lo que simbolizan, y los personajes que les dieron vida, con sus inquietudes y propósitos. Estos temas, los transmite de un modo muy ameno, salpicados con anécdotas y curiosidades de hace siglos, y que aun perduran, parte del acerbo de Portugal, y su transcendencia en el desarrollo de la cultura occidental. También pone al auditorio en situación, de lo que debieron sentir los marinos portugueses, al lanzarse al mar sin saber lo que les esperaba en ese entonces llamado "Mar tenebroso", el océano atlántico... Montados en una cáscara de nuez, sin planos ni instrumentos de navegación... Una epopeya para Luis de Camões, para Ric(k)ardo, y para cualquiera que le escuche y lo pueda imaginar. Héroes anónimos que trascienden el tiempo, y este último mensaje metafísico, también me ha parecido un buen remate de la presentación, con el que me ido reflexionando... En resumen : gracias Ric(k)ardo!!!
