Can anyone speak/read Portuguese - need translation..

  1. I have a postcard that I bought on eBay. It's of Crane Beach in Barbados and the handwritten message is from 1905.

  2. Hi :smile:
    I can speak portuguese.

    The first 2 lines say:

    The sea is moved by the winds.
    A man is moved by passion.

    I can't read the rest, but if you send me a better resolution image, i'm sure i can translate it easy :biggrin:
     
  3. No wonder I had trouble translating it after you sent it to me, BagLady - it's in Portuguese :shame: Sorry I couldn't be of more help!
     
  4. Cristina - I'm so sorry I wasted your time. Brasilian Babe sent me a PM saying that it was Portuguese and NOT Spanish. That shows how little I know! She is going to try to translate it.

    Those first two lines are good though. Don't you think? I'm sure postcards that I send are not that poetic!
