«I´m a van selling Portuguese tales and poems, from consecrated Portuguese authors, translated into several languages.
Usually I move through the old Lisbon neighborhoods.
Full of wisdom with all my books. I have so many stories to tell!!!
I already have 38 years which is an advanced age for a minivan. I was retired, resting between Alenquer floodplains, until someone found me and decided to give me a new life.
After a facelift I feel rejuvenated and even attractive. So many people always observing me and taking pictures.
My style is Hippie Chic and my name… "Tell a Story"»
