Burrico D´Orada was born from a little girl´s dream.
During the long vacations spent at Monte do Carvalhal, with Grandpa António Valadas (“Burrico”, as he was called) and with Grandma Maria (“do Monte”).
During the long hours spent with them both, a dream was being planted within my heart – when listening to his/her singing while cleaning the Olive Trees, feeding the baby lambs, the chickens, the turkeys, the rabbits, while kneading the bread dough, the Popias and the Folhados Sweats, while fetching water to the House and the Animals at a nearby well with the wood-wagon and the mule, during the hard toil of the land with the plow and the mattock, seated on the floor at the door under the hot summer sky, while preparing the chorizos and the smoked ham, during the long winter nights at the fireplace hearing their long gone stories from their youth or even while seeing Grandma Maria sewing with her wise hands. People who were forced to become men and women before their time, growing fast to the hardship of the land and the poverty they were raised in.
This is an homage I make them. Now that they sing and rock me gently from Heaven above. The Monte do Carvalhal , this plot where we stand now, was a dream, now came true. When I was 12 years old, telling my Grandpa: “_ Grandad, I would love to receive people and live here, near you one day!” – to which he responded promptly” _ That would be beautiful my granddaughter”, while smiling at me with his deep blue eyes and his snow-white air…And sang to me amongst the Olive Trees whispering and the Fig Trees warm aroma, which he planted 70 years ago.
