1. Introduction

For us the Mirror article of October 24 “Madeleine McCann detectives examine former suspect's pictures of children after Sunday People probe” is one very positive and major step towards having the real and full truth about the Madeleine case come finally to light.

A step that has gone unnoticed in its importance. Much has been said about it but all have missed how really important we think it is.

The Narrative of Negligence

It’s said and we fully agree that there’s nothing worse than a parent losing a child.

It’s so horrific that no language without exception has an adjective for it. A person who loses a parent is an orphan and one who loses a husband or wife is a widower or a widow.

He who loses a child has no word to give comfort of meaning, a word that at least would attempt to define what is indefinable, incomprehensible and absurdly unjust, a word to heed others of their pain and plight.

Praia da Luz

Typical Praia da Luz architecture, historic (not) and quaint (not)

1. Introduction

As we said in our post “Sardine-munching” we visited Praia da Luz at the beginning of this month.

We set out to visit the village, do some walking around, have lunch and eventually revisit anything else there before heading for Sagres.

After 5 years of exchanging mails, the Textusa sisters have finally decided to meet.

Yes, it finally happened!

We decided it was more than enough time to be just letters on a screen to one another and that the time to get to know each other personally had come.

That’s what happened this week.

The saint of Salem II


Last post we spoke of one of the ix (nine) interactions Yvonne Martin had with the authorities pertaining to the Maddie case.

We dealt with interaction ii – The anonymous letter.

Even though we tackled a very controversial issue the expected warm breeze of silence that touched our cheeks told us the seas ahead continue to be calm and ridiculously flat so we see no reason for us not to continue to point the bow of our vessel towards the horizon and proceed with our trip through these dead-still waters.
