Hi everyone,

I was thinking that on this post, everyone could write the theme of their presentation so that the ones who missed a couple classes can still have an idea of what went on during class. It will be part of the test, so it's better if we have all the information. You can just update it anytime and add your own!

Thank you,

Ópera Rock, Felizmente há Luar: Open Invitation

Dear colleagues,

As you may (or may not!) remember, I mentioned a musical that is going to be on stage on the 31st of May (and ONLY on the 31st) - Musical Ópera Rock: Felizmente Há Luar. I know that some of you live far away, others are not that interested bla, bla know what I mean right? The same old story - we want and we cannot go. We don´t want to go and thus we will ignore this message so I shall say on advanced...I won´t be offended if you do not or you cannot go!
Anyway, if you are (THAT) interested, here is some information on the musical - (it is on page 19)
how to buy your ticket (I think it is cheap...3.66 euros)
Also, a map with the Theater´s location - I took the liberty to put Oriente as the starting point. You should also now that you can take the ferry to Barreiro and then the train or bus to Baixa da Banheira.
If you have any questions or doubts, please do not hesitate to ask me!

Hey everyone, here's my power point on my presentation about Art Deco Architecture in the United States.

Art Deco

Hello everybody!

Here is my presentation on Art Deco, along with some introductory notes so you won't feel too lost. It is impossible to talk about everything, so if you want to see and learn more about this subject, Google is your friend! Another option is to just take a walk outside and look around — there must be an Art Deco building somewhere near you.

(Please let me know if the download doesn't work.)

Have a nice Sunday!
