  • Description

    President Jusceline Kubitschek of Brazil on a state visit to Brazil drove through a downpour of paper in Lisbon Aug 6 - a traditional greeting from a city already en fete for the 500th anniversary of the death of Portugal's first sailor. Prince Henry the Navigator whose sailors were to discover Brazil.

    Regarding the President's visit as something of a family event, the Portuguese packed the streets billowing with paper to applaud him, grasp his hand when they could, wave flags and release scores of balloons.

    The Portuguese Government honoured him with a mass parade of troops and a flypast of jet aircraft in JK formation - the initials of the visitor. At Sesimbra Bay when the President was on board the visiting Brazilian cruiser Almirante Barroso, hundreds of Portuguese fishing boats gathered in the Bay to greet him. On shore the President met some of the fishermen to receive a gift of a model fishing boat.
