I have noticed that bookmarks is not only related to books, but - in some way - music too. We can imagine hearing a tango in the Argentinian bookmark, or the Condor passes in the Peruvian bookmark, or the music of Violeta Parra in the Chilean one. This time is Portugal that brings us the most representative of its sounds: a fado. If this bookmark had a song it could be "Os velhos amantes" by Misia  (literally, "Old lovers"), that is a song I like very much. Fados are so intense, so passionate, aren't they?. I love them. And, isn't Portuguese one of the most beautiful languages in the world? I believe so . Beautiful soundtrack for this colourful bookmark ♥.

On the reverse of the bookmark there is a text - in Portuguese, English and French - that says:

Athens produced sculpture,
Rome developed law, Paris 
invented revolution, Germany 
discovered mysticism.
- And what about Lisbon?
- Lisbon created fado.
