Portugal wins in blog translation carnival!

Reading the comments to the Blog translation carnival and I see this one by Tatyana who blogs in Russian. She says about the contributions to the translation carnival:
I find it amazing that Portugal, a magical country I love dearly, has come up so often in this small selection.

And then she goes on to say: "I caught the Portuguese bug from Leah who lives and writes in Setubal."

Setúbal? Such a small world! I wonder who is Leah in Setúbal who spread the Portuguese bug to a Russian living in New York who participated in the blog translation carnival?

Apart from the preponderance of Portuguese translations there were also Russian, Spanish, Swedish, French, English, Spanish and Bulgarian. I'm going to host the next round of translations which we'll set for March 28th. I'll put the info. in the next post. I'll also start a tagging it.

Hi, Beverly,
I was so pleased to find this post and to see I've got you interested in Leah's writings.
As I said in the intro, Leah Lubomirsky came to Portugal from Moscow, she's a writer and radio-journalist, currently - graduate student in Lisboa. I started reading her "Portuguese" short stories last spring, got infatuated with this incredible world she created and decided to see for myself - is the country really that magical as she made it to be. So I wrote to her and arranged a visit in September. It turned out, she's right, Portugal hits you hard...

She writes in Russian, speaks/writes/reads in Portuguese and French (I think, some Spanish and Italian, too). Her husband Tersio(sp?) speaks a bit of English.

I don't think she'd mind if I give you her address to write to: arito - at - mail - dot - ru.
Can you read in Russian?

Hello tat. No, I don't read in Russian, but I can always talk to her in Portuguese. Her stories aren't on a blog?
