A man without friends, a woman without friends, does not exist. — Paulo Coelho
An annual tradition friends gather together to celebrate St Joseph Day.
What purpose is life without friends?
A St Joseph Day Party, Paulo Coelho and friends at Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho.
Hotel Fortaleza do Guincho is a recently restored 17th century fortress-like complex along the coast from Cascais, which is along the coast from Lisbon.
The Portuguese were adventurers and navigators, what is life without adventure, without taking risks?
The evening started with cocktails, followed by Paulo and Christina welcoming everyone.
Rudolf sent his best wishes, he was sorry he could not be there, but Scorpions were performing in Moscow.
Prayers in many languages, Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Urdu, English, starting with Portuguese.
