To all my Internations friends in Porto Alegre. Last june I came in Portugal to attend an award for Entrepreneurship of the presidency of the Portuguese Republic and ended up discovering that had a repetitive strain injury in both hands, whose treatment requires not use keyboard and a lot of physical therapy. Fortunately the situation is improving but the forced absence prevents the permanence in Porto Alegre consequently the Ambassador function at n Internations as yet do not know when I return. For now I'll stay between Lisbon and London. I am sure the Jay and Victoria will make a excente work. Sorry for not making a long farewell letter but it is still Difficult to write.
