"In the streets of Lisbon, the jacaranda trees were blooming as if nature had never lost its memory for colours. Like flaming torches, they kept vigil over the songs of the lorikeets, the cacoaques and all the other wounded birds, in the season when the coral tree flowers."
Luís CARDOSO in "The Crossing - A Story of East Timor"
London, Granta Books, 2000 (Tradução de Margaret Jull Costa)
