A glimpse of my life in Setubal

Setubal is in Portugal on the Atlantic coast south of Lisbon. It was in 1967 that two student brothers, Henrique and Domingo, arrived there. Thanks to the parish priest, they went to a slum area on the side of the hill that overlooks the town. Bonds of friendship were created, and in 1974, when the people of the area organised themselves to build proper homes after the fall of the dictatorship, the fraternity was integrated into it. About 300 families live there now. And that is where Luis and Henrique live; Luis works at the Higher Polytechnic Institute.  read more »
