The Beginning of Black History

"Most of us think that the first Africans to arrive in what is now the United States, we're slaves, but it turns out that that's not true. The first African to set foot on what would become United States soil was a free black man named Juan Garrido. A conquistador, the Spanish name for a conqueror. Rita was born around fourteen eighty in west Africa. As a young man he traveled to Lisbon. Portugal then to Sa- V. Spain when he converted to the Roman Catholic. Church he took a new name Juan Garrido meaning handsome John. He winds up sailing with the Spanish is a free person as A. Door and spends three decades in service to the Spanish crown. In fifteen thirteen garrido participated in Pants Dale Fain expedition in Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth. This is the first record of a black person setting foot in what is now the United States. What does that mean? It means that there was this space people of African descent could occupy. That wasn't exclusively being a person of bondage. RETO. Settled in Mexico where he spent his final years working at a gold mining operation and while he was a freeman, he profited from local slave labor. Garrido died in fifteen fifty almost seventy years before the first enslaved Africans arrived in Jamestown?

"Okay. So data from Lisburn. An hour and a half flight out into the Atlantic Ocean I would say that maybe when we think of data, we might just think of four to find wine Cristiano Ronaldo. One of its most famous export in fact, I, saw the Cristiano Renaldo Statue at the airport in Medina at the beginning this is quite controversial because it was a really bad likeness is nothing like Cristiano. Renaldo. Well, kind of. Mutilated version they've since replaced attach with one that looks more like Ronaldo. But you will see that at the airport when you arrive the thing that's interesting about the approach to data. Is. The location of the Airport Madeira is basically a huge volcanic rock with very few places which actually. Big Enough and flat enough to to accommodate a runway. So what they've done in data is they've built the runway out on a kind of platform on big concrete pillars. So the runway extends out into the sea and really interesting approach when you come into land and the other thing I noticed as well when he leave the apple, the road from the apple kind of curves. Under the runway and underneath the run web never seen this anywhere else in a well before underneath the runway tennis courts, basketball courts, and things like that is really interesting. The way they've designed it anyway data, which means would in. Portuguese. Our into it's green and wooded nature is about five hundred and forty miles from Lisbon and about three hundred and sixty miles from Morocco. sub-tropical tropical SPEC and the Atlantic sting with exotic color. Warm Year round rarely gets below around twenty degrees, Celsius. Yes. Absolutely. Enchanting Island some people call it the pearl of the Atlantic the island of eternal spring is really like an emerald isle. I suppose it reminded me of a kind of. Between the north of Spain into its greenery reminded me of a mix between gala leafier. US reminded me a little bit of whales back in the UK or Cornwall in the South West of the UK mixed with. Of sub-tropical Islands, some people call it the Hawaii of Europe and very dramatic volcanic. It has two or three of Portugal's highest peaks which I talk about a little bit later and really the attraction of the island is the natural beauty I'm having said that there is so many things you can do for such a small island particularly outdoor activities you can do mountain walks there must be thousands of kilometers of hiking sailing. You can do Dolphin and whale watching diving fishing canyoning surfing paragliding an abundance of outdoor activities. To do and one of my favorites which we did a little bit of while we were there is something called Levada walking. Now LAVARRA's these kind of watercourses or manmade water channels which direct water all over the island started up in in the highest peaks of the island and channel water down into the valleys to the villages and towns, and in order to maintain these levers, these water channels which are only about a meter will so wide, they have pathways running alongside them. So therefore, they are be ideal. hiking routes and many hiking routes around the island run alongside these water channels. Varda's but Madeira Island, it's actually an archipelago situated in the North Atlantic Ocean in the region known as Macronesia two hundred and fifty miles north of the Canary Islands and about three hundred and twenty miles west of Morocco, not particularly large island thirty, four miles long and at its widest point around fourteen miles, and it has around ninety miles of coastline and rises in the center to the review peak, which hits one. Thousand eight hundred and sixty one meters has just over six thousand feet. One thing noticed about one thing you'll notice about the geography of the island is the as i. said, there are really very few penalty Allen which are actually flat even the coastline they mountains of the interior don't slope down gently to the beaches you have these very dramatic cliff drops down to the sea. The other thing talking about beaches on the island is the they're very stony and rocky. There are a couple of sandy beaches on data. But they're actually man-made imported fine sand from Morocco in fact, but you'll find most of the beaches around the island are very rugged and rocky and Pedley. You'll also find that to get to the beaches. The very steep descents are the driving in a car. In fact, many of the beaches actually have cable cars which take down from clifftops to the beaches, and just what I'm talking about driving it's important to mention I think that really the best way to get the most out of Madeira. is to hire a car and that's what we did. We hide. Carl the airport and we have the car for the entire time that we were there to be honest with the really you need a car to explore the island properly there are bus routes which connect the kind of bigger towns around the island. But. If you really want to get out into the Wilderness, if you want to see these mountains and these hiking routes and you. Want to see as much of the islanders. Possible. Really I would say a car is essential job on that note will also say that driving in Madeira is pretty. Pretty terrifying experience. If.

"Would say. Maybe seventy percent of the vocabulary is very similar to Spanish. And maybe thirty percent of the vocabulary is completely different Spanish maybe more similar to French or Talian. However, the Portuguese accent and the Portuguese way of pronouncing vowel sounds on the letter S. is completely different to Spanish. Portuguese. Spoken competitors written would say it's free difficult to understand. Now managed to communicate in Spanish for most of the time I think what the taxi driver who took us from the airport to the center described as Portal Gan Yo you can communicate in Spanish lots of people in Lisbon speak.

"Okay. So let's talk food and drink food and drinking Lisburn is in my experience. Fantastic. He got to know where to go I suppose a four, avoid the touristy places like I mentioned. That goes for anywhere in the world seafood fish and meat as well. I'm very affordable if you manage to find out of normal everyday neighborhood restaurant, incredibly good value the two nights that we were there we ate out. We paid for basically three calls meal and a bottle of wine something like that. He five euros really fantastic mine. Good. But. In terms of what you're gonNA find commonly on offer. So called back allow. Everyone dry salted card. Millions of ways of preparing it. You a buck, allow a brush with his shredded with onions and eggs and potatoes. Commonly found up in the body. Alto, you quite simply just have grill court. You'll have all types of fish. Tuna monkfish Saudi grilled very simply with `tatoes and solid is very common. Main course you'll find octopus Shuna shrimp clams and snails as well. Snails a quite popular but one of my favorite preparations of the evac allowed is the crocodile. Basically, unlike Spanish croquettes excuse ones made we'd like a special source inside but they're made with potatoes. Mashed potato flaked back allow caught flake tuned mix with Parsley, garlic salt and pepper, and then sometimes I coated in ICA breadcrumbs and fried absolutely delicious delicious net. You find them lots of hole in the wall kind of places around the city just to take away. Sort of little tap pass almost you can find them no restaurants but some restaurants will offer them as a starter or is this snack to go with a drink I would highly recommend trying it would be remiss of me not to mention the PASTELLE THEY NATTA? Or the Space Benneteau pastiches the plural postal they not. In the singular these are the famous egg custard tarts -solutely. Wonderful. Very addicted there. Yeah. It cost tossed. So actually been to the Catholic monks, the state of the those shown Emot- in Milan. Famously. Served since eighteen thirty, seven in ANTIGA compete career they bellum and you can find them everywhere in the city today absolutely everywhere so that Chris Puff Pastry missed spilled with custard cream baked until the golden. Then they dusted with cinnamon most famous place to try them. As I said, is the Pasta de Belem which has been going since eighteen, thirty seven. Interestingly, the origin behind the pastiche was the nuns amongst us to use egg whites to staunch their clothes. So the quite stops that Claes hence, they always had loads and loads of headaches leftover. Addition I ordered one evening when we ate out in his beautiful little restaurant up in the valley. Was a dish called face Wada face water is a skew of beans beef and pork notch. I didn't really know what it was until I. Basically just said to the guy in the restaurant. What would you recommend? Is the most delicious thing. Many what would you order and he said to me all you must. You must try the phase weather and wow. This is really huge portion really heavy stew of beans beef pork. They also throw in like blood sausage and basically Portuguese version of Theresa, which is jewelry so Cook Taylor and low heat from time. Wow. It's so labor. So I was absolutely blown away by this this served with a side of rice and disobeys excited. But absolutely delicious Berry Hardy probably more of a winter dish. If I'm honest I was absolutely stuffed in food camera of eating it but it was so flavor sunlight just couldn't stop myself. So the face Wada, it reminded me a lot of the Prada you find in the north of Spain and also reminded me slightly off the Costea the Madrileno the St that we get here Madrid over his son is something that you would only really wyndhams. Maybe onto drink the thing which is very typical in Lisbon very specific to Lisbon is this little tipple. Little Cherry Cure Code Jinja. defined a Lisbon and it's a little cherry cure said, served a little shot glasses sell in various kiosks around the city or holy war bars. Sometimes, it sources served in a little chocolate cops drink than a little cherry to cure, and then you eat the chocolate up as well. Many step to. Do. Try It. It's it's an acquired taste. I guess I like it so. I think carrying the Senate. Reminded her of. Cough medicine. In fact, while we were there, we went to the home, the birthplace of Ginger, and here's a little bit of audio recorded where. I'm standing outside a place called. Gene? Has Jinya some locals describing having a quick shot now time to a hole in the place. Engineer is Cherry to cure and you can order. With Whole Cherries. Now With Cherries the. marinated pickled in in the alcohol kind of faded. Color. So you can have a cure with or without a couple of chairs in drink gets a brown red color as you would expect and the place where we've just ordered one. was actually invite gallician named espy neither. was. The first shop in Lisbon to sow the beverage After which is named and soon became one of the city's Ex Lieber. Advised by a fire from the Gracia descent Antonio. Espanola made the experiment of Letting Cherries ferment in brandy adding sugar water and Cinema. Success was immediate. Both because it was sweet because it was inexpensive engine genia became the typical beverage of Lisburn and it's true. You can find these little engineer holes in the walls around the city but also probably nicer she and some of the little squares they have these little gin. Yeah. Stems little mini bars inside metal kind of very decorative very pretty on metal round pick a bit like sort of news. Kiosk. Stands the old style ones but they actually settled. Virginia let's go quite a kick to it. Looks Good. Okay. So how long should you spend in Lisbon while we were there for two nights in about two and a half days? I guess I would say warrants a bit more time we can fit and everything, but we would have liked to have done is the perfect city to visit for maybe three nights four days or maybe not five nights and they're also really beautiful places to visit surrounding Lisbon like the town of Sintra. Cash as well. One thing is worth mentioning is language now obviously Portugal Portuguese now when I see Portuguese Richard. I can almost understand. A good level when you see Portuguese return, it looks very similar to Spanish I.

"Of the winning Spain podcast I'm your host for this podcast. Show this episode. Actually, I'm going to be a little different to the usual episodes and making it a little bit of a diversion. Normally, this podcast is all about Spain Spanish live. Spanish coach. How ever I thought we'd have a little change in this episode I'm taking you to Portugal in this episode I'm going to be talking about a trip that Carina and myself made a few weeks back for Summer Holidays to the Portuguese capital of Lisbon or Elizabeth. And then an on were trip to the Portuguese or Thomas Island of misfit. Now. I. Don't normally do this. In fact I've never done this before I've never done an episode. It's not about Spain think no I don't think I have Why am I? Why am I talking about Portugal in a podcast which is about Spain well good question. My kind of thinking behind it was that Lisbon specifically, not so much data but certainly, Lisbon is a viable and well worthwhile signed trip from Spain, if you're spending any. Any sort of long amount of time on the Peninsula Lisbon is A viable site trip and well worth it at least for a long weekend and if you think about it geographically Lisbon while from Madrid where I'm speaking to you from. Lisbon is more or less. The same distance from Madrid as the loan is from Madrid really Madrid is slap bang in the middle almost in the geographical center of Spain. And when you look on the map, actually you know Madrid is almost equidistant between. Barcelona and Lisbon for this reason I thought well, why not it will be interesting to make change talk to you guys the Spain lovers abound about Lisbon and the end of the episode I'm going to talk a bit about Madida as well. Corina on me had some holidays booked to go to Medina Luckily. during this complicated time of covid nineteen, we were still able to make that trip of flights were not cancelled. We didn't have any kind of logistical problems at all actually. When we went to book the trip actually, our plan for the trip was actually go directly to data. The reason being is that we have a a a good friend who's from data and who lives there who we actually met back in the UK about five or six years ago, and she moved back to Madeira and I don't know for the last two probably three years we've been meaning to make a trip. To. Med to Madeira to visit her. But the flights have always been super super super expensive. Now, I don't know if it's because of covid nineteen, but we managed to find flights to that from Madrid for about one hundred, fifty euros return each how ever when we went to book, we realized that there are no direct flights to data from from Madrid certainly I don't know if there are many other parts of Spain. But there are no. Direct flights to Madeira. The only way to get there flying is to go via. Lisbon. Do a little a scholar as they say in Spanish stopover. In, Lisbon connect through Lisbon and then take what is basically an internal flight to Medina. So we went to break. We thought well, you know if we're going through Lisbon, why don't we turn that into a little city break as well? So we did and we ended up spending I. Think Two nights only in Lisbon to break up the trip and also to soak the science of Lisbon as well. the curious thing about Portuguese cousins. Next door is that it's actually very difficult in terms of train travel at least to take a train directly. From Spain across into Portugal, there is kind of overnight sleeper train which takes you from Madrid up into Galaxia Thea, and then goes back down via Porto. I think a really long quite expensive journey actually, and it's really curious thing that transport connections between Spain and Portugal I'm not great and so the most viable way to get to Lisbon is to fly but don't worry because the flights a usually fairly reasonably priced from Madrid to Lisbon and the flight is is nothing it's a short hop about forty five minutes to one hour flying time from Madrid to Lisbon. Literally. Hop Over Extra Madeira and the interior of Portugal down to Lisbon. So that's what I thought I would do in this episode guys are going to run through what we saw in. Lisburn and I'm going to give you my recommendations for things to visit my observations definitely going to be talking about food and drink in in Lisbon as well and a bit later in this episode, all do a little roundup of of data as well for anyone who's interested possibly in the island of Madeira which was absolutely breathtakingly stunningly beautiful, I? Mean really magical island just before we head off to Lisbon. Just like to say a big thank you to new when in Spain patron. So a big growth. Yes to Adrian. Silvis Burke. Big. Thank you to Ben Liam.

"All right. Welcome to that Gabon Jewish show jewels. We're here we got. We have our to championship pass by Munich Perea, the gene normally known as Barry Sons your man I want to get right into it. We'll get off time they talking about Barcelona and Leon and life in the losing semi-finalists. Let's get right into it with a man who they're man in the know John Off your man always on the move, he's joining us from his parked vehicle. Yawn? All right by an steamrollered road graded Barcelona and Chelsea But against Leon, they played their highline played their aggressive high press ball over the top Leeann created plenty chances against them early on because they've got quick strikers. I wonder if there's a problem for flake, we've seen him say deeper for example, against Bush, a doorman before might be tempted to do that rather than to go out and expose his highline. Against People like Kilian Mbappe and Neymar is telling me are both talented and quick. Well. I, think it's it's a very valid point. I think that flick just after the game yesterday you start thinking of that because sleek knows and I know you guys know that if you let a team like g get five chances as Leon Goatee yesterday or last night, they will lose to final because Neymar and de Maria, they will create something they will score will score on those chances but I think the big question for hundred flick is yes I can go ten meter deeper but then the Levandowski Miller, they gotta go ten meter deeper as well and we'll that. Would we lose a bit of aggression. Do we use lose that? Face of the team or that has made us loose in twenty nine games and I think that is a big big questions and if you do that strategy was kind of consequences for of my team. So if you see the back four of of of by Munich so the four of them would Davis Alabama left side there quick enough there. Okay. Although Davis can attack and Maria yeah can going attack. I. Will just use that space where we win a bullets on the other right side, you have bullet tank on. To maybe I should pit pod in because he's a quicker than Cambridge what do I do I have to keep him in the team? Should I put him in central at the number six instead of maybe Tiago so the consequences of doing that is that you may be lucid team that beat Barcelona eight to. Winning three nil in semi final and we haven't lost Uber Broken all records in. Champions. League in scoring those kind of thing dossier and all that. So I think there's a big decision for flicks to make I. Think it's most likely although these challenges need to be sold and answer if a front of the team and on himself that he will keep going what is done because this is by a Munich and He also SORTA GAME PSG against. Atalanta Atlanta's. Were not too tired they where they were hunting the ball and the opponent all over the show. So I, think he's most likely but I think for for fleet now, there is a lot of thinking to do. There's there's big choices to make for him because even if you drop juggled to to bring came in midfield, PSG will press times and we saw against live seeing the second goal. Just before halftime came from that press in garage at a mess of it but still they were really really high juggle would be perfect to try to beat price and place through the press maybe better than key got together. So for both managers I think to hold, did you bring by variety who would be fit enough I think to start it hasn't played much at all in the last two weeks. Would you bring him back? I would bring him back because I think there were times where would press and he's he's your best player to be depressed in Paris. So I think both of them to make so many fascinating choices in an how deep you play or know how you play or no. Do you go Kosovo? Mid. Block. Press and where you not too deep too high either in between. But then if you leave the PSG that can hurt you still I just think. I just think for both flee to her and by the way she really rare to have two managers of the same nationality in the Champions League final. I think the first time in history and they know each other well and I don't think there's many secrets with tour between by an PSG anyway to hold and flake is just fascinating to see what they would go for and what they would choose. Yanni and it's also it's just also interesting that strategy and tactic information. How depends also on the players you you are putting in your team, not only that what will that do to your team? So if you take out go juggle is on his way out. Will he then the three last days now, Wilfley Sing Tao is better than I my keep my team. He had to the team to put out yesterday was the third time in a row. We had the same team why should it change it around for a final Willie? Thank the now we are buying would go for a we believe in and I think that is the fascinating thing of being a manager of a football team. You are both a coach Anna Leader and somehow you'll you gotta mix that as good as you come. John what I find really interesting I'm you touched upon the to manage I think it's I think there's so much to breakdown tactically in this game so many possible variations but. I'm just curious flick is obviously somebody who's got the respect of the players He was a number two for the last fifteen years with the German national team obviously came into the number two here but obviously is also former player. Whereas to hold is somebody who came up the hard way if you will somebody who's been very, very creative as a manager in the back in the past, going back to his days at mines, unusual formations, unusual setups. Then in some ways, set to become a more standard, more Orthodox manager more of a man manager perhaps. Pace Jay this year because of the players that they have. This, how important is it? I mean who for these two managers to get by into got to get the trust of their players? Does it change ahead of the final? I think that a what will. Sometimes, you try to describe the manager. Sometimes, you try to try to compare them and I think that tobacco is more pragmatic into that thing. That's sometimes you you can may be if you're a bit critical to llagas Mon-, they wouldn't have one define semifinal anyway but sometimes he has welcomed attempted to overthink. Pep Guardiola the being the professor over thanking Nice my do the. And Toco talk some some how in his way of doing thing is seems very pragmatic and I think that you touched upon an a very wide those same there I think was to what? We will remember this PG team and what I will remember least follow them in in different times what a different interviews being in different games for them is that how has he managed? On the players they say they have done it themselves but Ho is managed of all these individuals to make a team. That's what I find. So fascinating food because you can have their a professor in kind of tactics but that doesn't help if you're not a good leader and took was very criticized endorsed and was fired endorsed after winning the Cup final but he as well has taken another stepped on on flick you mentioned is being number two, but he's also got the background or being that. Sports Director. Kind of guy. So he had learned to be also leader and I think that that that is is very valuable into this final because tactic they know each other. So well, they've seen each other thousand times that follow each other in all the coaching career but who who manage to get the boys going let Julia know a lot about more than me about that. But the way like Neeman now has changes to be in different player I mean, what happened to his brother who was diving around in in Paris? Body language a now suddenly this other name is coming showing. That is one of the best and I think that is so fascinating to see when when individuals kind of the glue into a team. Yon We're going to have to leave it there. Thank you so much. I.

"The recovery effort from the quake links up with things that we're seeing today in attendance to recover from. Virus mock. Maybe you have some input on that. Yes, repeat with a civilian about. The frequency with which? Major catastrophes. Are often thought of in terms of opportunities as much as in terms of humanitarian disaster, going back to what David and Katie was saying about the religious politics of the eighteenth century. It's extremely unlikely that Pombo would have prevailed would have prevailed so quickly in them, his moves against to constrain the church in particular the JESUITS, if it hadn't been for the kind of not just the sweeping powers that he was granted in order to deal with the oath quake, but that's generalized atmosphere of crisis, and of times being radically shaken up and end of a needs to to reach out to different ways of thinking or extreme solutions to an extreme problem. I think I think that's something that's. This is never obviously direct parallels. To be drawn between one historical events, and another I think it's. It's a general principle that it's. It's wise for us to consider in. The face of of any major will disaster, and Katie, what do you reckon a yeah I would agree I. Think also Lisbon's I sort of modern disaster that happens as as with David Mark of Said and this is the first time that we get this. Classical Kennedy logical question of. Y has got delayed this to happen. Of this comes the question. Will you know people listening to believe that God was loving? So why? Why would you love God's a squid? If there is suffering in the world. This becomes problema tastes so within theology where I sit, we have ways of thinking by a arguments are sometimes Kofi overseas, which are defense of the divine, and they kinda give reasons for human suffering, and they sort of turned the blame back when humans themselves, a withdrawn virus is really interesting, so I teach on this at University of Redeem. We talk about how people still use those Iceland. E see on the news and you may be seen him on twitter things up. There's actually a M, an example of somebody quite recently at journalists colts a q city. Keep stirring lists India post, who really interesting piece questioning whether coronavirus was goads roth against a simple world sue. I mean again as As David was saying direct parallels, but it's interesting to see. Those candidates planations are still. Quickly drawn on. Especially when major road events happen, that's just what people gravitate towards because that suppose you could maybe say that it's not just about how major catastrophes create a situation in which it's necessary for someone to take command of the narrative to supply the dominant explanation of what is happened. Why has happened in how we get out of that disaster situation but also about the importance of looking for the ways in which that narrative is established, I mean for. For example in the case of of Lisbon I mentioned earlier, the importance of the the actual architectural language and symbolism of the rebuilding, and that was an absolutely essential way, in which tomorrow established this idea that the the Lisbon that was rising from the rubble, and from the ashes, was going to be the capital of very different empire into very different society, and we might think about other ways in which that that change of narrative can be. Imposed in the aftermath of a major catastrophe and last like is David. Do you see any parallels between the recovery from the Lisbon Laken? What we might be saying today, so one of the interesting parallels are one of the interesting lessons to learn that Lisbon contrast, interestingly with another eighteenth century earthquake, which is collaborator in seventeen ninety three. Now it's estimated the death toll is quite similar. But the disaster in the sense that we understand it today. Is really something which mocks contemporary consciousness by striking at key centers of international networks of flows of power goods capital information. So you know about Lisbon very little about collaborate. And the great economic political. Integration the greater the sense goal rather the of the sense of catastrophe there is on. Especially, if disrupt spectacularly, those type of systems are just another couple of points one. Is that responses to disaster on never politically or ethically neutral? You don't just follow the science and the scientific response to list, but in particular with very pluralistic, divergent and interesting, it was also very urgent, which has another parallel, but. There are always political and economic and ecological situations which preceded and contribute towards disasters and always governmental responses, which either alleviate exacerbate what the disaster does. So, there is no such thing as a purely natural disaster. This is something. We learned very clearly with this, but that was Russo's lesson. Katie's referred to and just to to finish site that some. One of the things which is most interesting is the Lisbon is seen as an expression of a modern form of terror. Terror in the face of overwhelming, unstoppable unpredictable natural might. And terror continues to teach us one thing which is that we can be very institutionally robust in all societies, but we can at the same time remain psychologically very fragile. And that's something which I think is quite clear. In many of the different responses to Lisbon, and it remains to obviously to the way we're responding to an curran vibes today. Sarah, the media and the public response to current viruses anything to go by. This is an example that we're going to be learning from looking to be saying the recovery from for many years to come in similar fashion to Lisbon. Thank you very much. Much, thank you, thank you.

"And this was actually the first such comprehensive study of north quake, and its physical economic and social consequences that had been commissioned anywhere in Europe. So in that sense he was, he was very proactively working against these these most. Religious superstitious interpretations the event. And, and that was carried through to the rebuilding of the city, as well in the very innovative methods for mitigating the effects of future earthquakes were developed in the rebuilding of the city and have proven that worth that this is still quite regularly struck by more minor earthquakes, and yet these buildings from the the the rebuilding, the the seventeen fifty and seventeen sixty have have survived and remained extremely robust because of those those innovative methods. David what's your perspective on this question of religion following the quake, the number of ways of looking at catches mentioned providential. ISM which I think is very important, because it's not just a discrediting traditional Christian Interpretations Auburn Earthquake is divine punishment. It's also way of calling into question. The beneficent kindness goodness off a Deity of a natural theology, so if you imagine if the world is created for happiness and well-being of humankind, and that's acceptable in the day wonders of nature underway, we enjoy them materially and spiritually unearth quake. Quite literally shatters all of that. MAKES US rethink lots. If you like compact between humanity and the natural world, and the particular form of providential ISM that most effect is one which is satirized most famously, most savagely involved has candied, which is optimism now. This isn't optimism as we understand it today. That sort of look on the bright side mustn't grumble glass half full type of general positive. This optimism undestood is an benevolent diety, creating a universe to hold an optimum of good or goodness, so something exists, it is full the goods it is for the best in the best of all possible worlds and. Voltaire. Many of his contemporaries looked with horror and dismay at what had happened in. Listen, said that cannot possibly be cannot be justified on those tones. And, as a result, he qualifies optimism. As a cruel philosophy under consoling name is a heartless fatalism, which is actually do not is or in denial of the very real human suffering felt by the Lisbon population, so in in many ways goes against those very modern humanitarian instincts were aroused elsewhere in capitals across the the continent. Thank you. The Lisbon earthquake can see quite distant and remote from us, but other ways in which we can see parallels with how.

"Ruined and completely burnt within a week of the earthquake, thanks mark, and had the governing class. The ruin is a fortune responding to this tragedy. So Portugal this time was an absolute monarchy under the reign of kings. You're saying I. jus however had from the outset of his reign in seventeen, fifty showed little. Interest in hands on ruling, and he had over the course of the previous five years increasingly deferred the matter of government to one of his three senior ministers, his his secretary of state. SABAJ YOUNG GIUSEPPE The CATA value mail late was made Marquis of the town of Papa is known to history as the mark with Home Bal. the king, and his family were actually fortunately for them, not in the city sent to win, the earthquake struck. They were down there. If you like the weekend residents. Six kilometers down towards the coast. And a poem bell made his way in the immediate aftermath of the quake to consult the king found humane, the state of utter shock terror despair, and it is said that King Shows A. Palmdale Pombo. What on Earth Are we to do? Pombo calmly replied Cya. We must bury the dead and feed the Living And with the calm and pragmatic approach. Pombo proceeded to orchestrate the most extraordinary recovery and stabilization. Efforts, over the subsequent weeks, amounts of the crisis, having procured from the king. Sweeping executive powers. And with the king's backing, being able to. Persuade the religious authorities to deal with the most pressing danger. That the city faced, which was that of? Disposing of the thousands or possibly tens of thousands, we don't know the exact number of casualties, but it was the most reliable estimates. PUT IT at around fifteen thousand, so it was necessary to dispose of those bodies before the city was consumed by terrible outbreaks of disease, as also at not meant bypassing the usual process of funeral rites and. Burial in sanctified grounds, and simply gathering the bodies together, throwing them onto ships, and having them buried at sea before that kind of epidemic situation could arise. At the same time simultaneously with with dealing with that, he was addressing four other serious problems famine. depopulation as as people fled from the aftershocks of the earthquake in the FIS. Crime as Opportunists looted the the ruins and such abandoned buildings is still in some kind of non ruinous state, and perhaps most importantly of all the recrimination Wayne, which people were searching for some kind of explanation for this pulling catastrophe, and in many cases presumes that this must be some kind of divine retribution against the city or against certain. Constituencies within the city's population in and in particular, those who are targeted were religious heretics, such as the substantial population of British of knows Europe Ian Merchants that worked in the city, and in terms of the city itself. How did pombal or the the Portuguese government about rebuilding? Deciding what to do with the ruins of Lisbon? Okay so often. The initial process of stabilization in which Palmdale had personally overseen the measures that were necessary to to prevent the outbreak of disease to feed the population to. Persuade them not to abandon the city to punish criminals for looting and thieving, and also to negotiate with a religious authorities to persuade them against. Funding the flames of religious scapegoating. Pombo secured further executive powers from the king, enabling him to. Embark on a whole scale reconstruction of the city. In a sense, we could say that. It's a good example of how this type of wholescale catastrophe. Can Be interpreted and has been interpreted in many historically instances as as an opportunity as well as a disaster. From, the start of Kings as rain Paul had been aiming APPS A long-term reform of Portugal's. Political system and its economy that would free the country from the overwhelming economic reliance. It had on Great Britain on British merchants. Who can who by this stage controlled most of the Brazilian trade? And in order to do this, he believed he had to displace the vested powers of the aristocracy in particularly of church institutions and the most powerful religious foundation, the country, which was the Jesuit order. On the rebuilding of Lisbon was his great opportunity, both in terms of showing that he had the organizational skills to take on such a huge project, and and to prevent further loss of life and property, but also in terms of minimizing the symbolic and the material presence and power of those institutions who opposed his reforms, and to centralize power under the crown, but effectively in his own hands and And also to empower the merchant class of the city, we can see this in the reconstructed city center, which was rebuilt in an uncompromisingly Russian list and centralizing spirit, using a rushing list, drake plan streets, which was heavily influenced by Christopher Wren's plans for the rebuilding of the city of London, which would never realized, but also an opportunity to symbolize through the architecture both the power of the crown. And the prestige of the merchant class. Where in the Old City? The most prominent buildings had been the churches and convents and the policies of the aristocracy now in this this new. Grid plan that pombal created. Churches would have to be rebuilt within the confines of that Grill. They could not have bell towers domes that rose above the standard height of the the grade of buildings, and also the the houses of the Stop crecy had to conform to that that replant as well, and our secrets were no longer permitted to embellish the facades policies with large-scale and blame missile coats of arms, displaying their status..

"The most well known of historical crises today, but the earthquake had repercussions that were felt across the continent, appending philosophical systems, changing politics and shaking religious faith. To tell the story of how Lisbon and Europe responded to the devastation of seventeen fifty five. I'm going to pulse you over to my colleague Grace Allen. She's the conversation cities editor. An author happens to have a PhD in early modern history. Grace. In the Eighteenth Century Lisbon was one of Europe's greatest cities.

On the morning of the first of November, seventeen, fifty five. Grand City. I'm around two hundred thousand people. Getting, ready to celebrate the religious holiday saints. Instead it was hit by a quake measuring between eight nine on the Richter scale. Quake and subsequent shockwaves were fully Viseu Nami. See Rescinded and team.

We're talking with Christina Duarte and Raphael Pereira and we're talking about Lisbon and the charm of the various neighborhoods and Raphael. We were talking about these neighborhoods. That were very traditional. And they're still people you know if you know where to look shaving the well the on the main square but there is a lot of gentrification going on and this must be a real interesting challenge for the people of Lisbon. Do WE WANNA go modern or do we want to protect our heritage. What are the challenges with gentrification in the modern world coming into some of these neighborhoods? Yes I'll say that it's one of the most controversial subjects right now in Lisbon is Either this boom of tourism is positive or not because the in processes happening as a consequence of the development of tourism that is a big part of the economy is so of course it has its positive and has its negative for the case of our Pharma. We have to understand. That is a neighborhood that people that live there. They don't go to the other side of the city a person from Pharma to go to the other side of the city. It's something that it once a year. Now imagine in the last five years you have the entire world at your doorstep. Imagine to impact that that has that is one that mentioned but let's look at the economic dimension and the pressure that they have to leave their neighborhoods because Portugal is an economic crisis in tourism is a very important part of the GDP right now as battalion tourism is eighty percent of the GDP and the tendency is to grow so imagine. Let's have this visual idea. Imagine have a sponge and it's very very dry and you put it in a bucket full of water. It's going to soak up and that's least boom right now. Multiple is an economic crisis in all of the sudden. You have all of this money coming in. And what is the priority to soak up? And that's what people are trying to do. It's an amazing opportunity to make a short rough it and now do you do it accommodation. Okay in two thousand twelve. After the liberation of the rental market anyone can come by.

Wendy's traveled a lot so far she's been to eighty five countries. She doesn't read the overseas flights at all in fact she joins us now with her tips on enjoying your next flight. Wendy thanks for being here. Sorry my so you write that long haul. Flights can be more fun than short ones. That's pretty good trick house. Oh I travel all the time as you said and I've come to really not lake. Short flights feel long only. They're not so I can't get anything done and instead you know. I look at long haul flights as uninterrupted me. Time just ten twelve hours of time where? I don't have any guilt that I should be doing something else and instead I can use the time to do all the things I wanna do that. I never seem to have time for one on the so that takes a little bit of intention and thinking ahead. I do the same thing when I'm planning a trip to Europe and I know my departures a week out. I've actually got a little list of things I'm going to do during the flight because I will get hours of me time. What are some of your meantime activities that make that flight actually blessing? Well it can be fun stuff and it can also be stuff that I just have to get taken care of that. I never have time to do so. For example it's a great time. I listened to a lot of music. I love music and I am always frustrated. That can't find the song I feel like listening to her playlist and that type of thing so it's a great time to clean out my tunes library and get rid of music. I don't like or create playlists. It's a great time to go through my email inbox and just finally cleared out. You don't have to be online to do that. Those things take a long time in our lives are so busy and never get render so tedious and who wants to do that on weekends. You know for me. A related thing would be Hall the piles of photos. I've got packed into my iphone. You can just go through in down. It's actually it's the perfect time to do all the stuff you don't WanNa waste time doing during the weekend or at night. Also you can just do something that you would normally invest time in other ways. Absolutely you know I'll to things like if I've always wanted to read about the history of someplace or I've been wanting to learn a few key phrases in the language of whatever country I'm going to you know that's the perfect time to catch up on movies or season of television shows all season of whatever or watch a movie that you wouldn't have exactly those are the exactly the kind of thing so it's really about mindset or a movie that your partner wouldn't WanNa see with you exactly are the ones you'd be so embarrassed ask anyone to watch with you. If you're anywhere else I love to walk up and down the aisle and just look at the way. People are spending their time and see how they're really getting into all that trash on the screen. I mean I've watched some of the most embarrassing movies ever on airplanes humiliated if anyone knew but it's the perfect time and I think you know people go onto airplanes dreading it and if you just you know if you make a few simple changes and you bring a neck pillow and you dress in layers and you take your shoes off and you have a glass of wine and you sort of look at the airplane is your you know your personal private space albeit. It's not comfortable but it's not permanent. I know people that would they would travel less in order to go first class and makes no sense that ultimately. I don't know how much more I think you'd pay five or six hundred dollars more one hundred dollars hour or something at least just sit in first class and just makes no sense to me because what you can do is you can creatively work to make your coach seat. Feel a little more elegant. And there's ways that I always say I would rather sit in coach with my noise reduction headphones than to sit business without them because the rumble of the airplane is. It's just exhausting to me and I can have my own little cone of silence and when I put my headphones on nobody talks to me and I do have that meantime I remember this interview that the CEO of Spirit Airlines did one time after a poll came out ranking them dead last in customer service and seat size and space and all these other statistics and he basically said listen. We get you from place to place really cheap. You can spend the money where you're going and I thought you know what a brilliant response and that's how I look at it. The airplane isn't part of the vacation. It's to get me to the big Russian affordably. Say money to it up and uncomfortable for thirteen hours so I have an extra thousand dollars when I get wherever it is that I'm going. I've Long said if I land in Europe or wherever I'm going safely on the day I hope to. It's been a huge success. I can send a thank you note to the president of that airline. But but let's talk about being stuck in coach and making it feel a little nicer. You mentioned. Bring a neck pillow. Yeah I don't even understand how people can sleep on a plane without an inflatable neck pillow and a lot of people bring the you know the hard the beanbag kind that they have to carry around the airport. The inflatable ones are equally comfortable. I promise you and then that way when you arrive wherever you're going you can deflate them and put them in your suitcase. And it's not an extra thing that you've got to carry along as you said. Bring your own headphones. They're so much better quality they don't hurt your years like the ones that they give you in coach. I always bring warm socks. You know your feet or freezing. They keep the airplane so cold but on the other hand you know where layers that way. You're controlling the temperature and not the airplane. You can get cold on a flight especially for sitting next to a window and to take your shoes off is nice but you need warm socks and he almost could've slippers or something but one way to keep your feet warm but not stuck in shoes and you can make your whole body comfortable. Take off your belt. It's like pajamas. Almost you know what I'm GonNa long haul flight overnight. I always wear like stretch pants and sweat clothes. Basically I don't really care if I don't look that great on an airplane for me. It's all about comfort and making sure that I'm as comfortable as possible in my seat. So I'll bring usually the Pashmina. I can use that as either a headrest or a blanket around myself. I assume they're giving me nothing so I bring whatever it is. I need to be comfortable. I bring a scarf and scarborough find very nice. Even if I'm going to hot destination at a time your word never used the scarf. I FIND THE SCARF. Really a godsend on the flight. Absolutely and also I've purchased. They have these small travel blankets that you.

I don't like or create playlists. It's a great time to go through my email inbox and just finally cleared out. You don't have to be online to do that. Those things take a long time in our lives are so busy and never get render so tedious and who wants to do that on weekends. You know for me. A related thing would be Hall the piles of photos. I've got packed into my iphone. You can just go through in down. It's actually it's the perfect time to do all the stuff you don't WanNa waste time doing during the weekend or at night. Also you can just do something that you would normally invest time in other ways. Absolutely you know I'll to things like if I've always wanted to read about the history of someplace or I've been wanting to learn a few key phrases in the language of whatever country I'm going to you know that's the perfect time to catch up on movies or season of television shows all season of whatever or watch a movie that you wouldn't have exactly those are the exactly the kind of thing so it's really about mindset or a movie that your partner wouldn't WanNa see with you exactly are the ones you'd be so embarrassed ask anyone to watch with you. If you're anywhere else I love to walk up and down the aisle and just look at the way. People are spending their time and see how they're really getting into all that trash on the screen. I mean I've watched some of the most embarrassing movies ever on airplanes humiliated if anyone knew but it's the perfect time and I think you know people go onto airplanes dreading it and if you just you know if you make a few simple changes and you bring a neck pillow and you dress in layers and you take your shoes off and you have a glass of wine and you sort of look at the airplane is your you know your personal private space albeit. It's not comfortable but it's not permanent. I know people that would they would travel less in order to go first class and makes no sense that ultimately. I don't know how much more I think you'd pay five or six hundred dollars more one hundred dollars hour or something at least just sit in first class and just makes no sense to me because what you can do is you can creatively work to make your coach seat. Feel a little more elegant. And there's ways that I always say I would rather sit in coach with my noise reduction headphones than to sit business without them because the rumble of the airplane is. It's just exhausting to me and I can have my own little cone of silence and when I put my headphones on nobody talks to me and I do have that meantime I remember this interview that the CEO of Spirit Airlines did one time after a poll came out ranking them dead last in customer service and seat size and space and all these other statistics and he basically said listen. We get you from place to place really cheap. You can spend the money where you're going and I thought you know what a brilliant response and that's how I look at it. The airplane isn't part of the vacation. It's to get me to the big Russian affordably. Say money to it up and uncomfortable for thirteen hours so I have an extra thousand dollars when I get wherever it is that I'm
