Otelo Saraiva de Carvalho rose to mainstream popularity in the mid-1970s due to his leading role in the Carnation Revolution. However, he performed poorly in elections for the Presidency of the country.

After the Torre de Belém, we headed towards “the triangle”— a monument I’d seen from the train and on postcards and wanted to see up close, because I wasn’t sure what it was. It turned out to be a gorgeous memorial just outside the military museum, the Monumento aos Combatentes do Ultramar, a gorgeous tribute to the fallen, a triangle-shaped structure in a pool of water, with names lining the courtyard behind. Just underneath the center is a small pathway, and the inside of each side of the triangle is mirrored. I believe a light from the pathway shines onto the mirrors at night, lighting it up from underneath, which must be gorgeous; it was stunningly beautiful just during the day. We also witnessed the two guards switch places, fantastic to watch; one of the guards looked a bit nervous and kept glancing at the other one in order to stay in step, which added a very human touch to the ceremony. I’m glad we walked over. The memorial is wonderful.
