WIN SBD AND STEEM FOREVER
JUST RESTEEM THIS POST
1. A contest to solve two problems!
I'm a bit concerned about the payouts. This is not really a not, and not what I expected... I get a lot of support to you guys but unfortunately our voting power is so small! These posts don't reach the whales...
We'll only be able to do that if we resteem this post like hell. Make it go viral. And how can you accomplish that? That's right, with a contest!
So here's what I'll do: using the Steem Power I inevitably get from these posts, I'll make a lottery for SBI shares! For each 1 SP the post gives, 1 SBI share will be released.
Which means this week we'll be giving away 2 SBI shares (because of last posts's SP).
How do you win? Just resteem this post. No other rules. Just resteem.
2. Last week's payout
So, things weren't great with the last post's payout. The rewards were 0.902 SBD, 0.020 STEEM and 0.383 STEEM POWER.
Last week I forgot to thank @tmarisco that donated 1 very useful SBD!
You'll say this is now much. And that's true, it's not much. But I really hope this new contest thing will help.
São Tomé e Príncipe
Roça Água Izé
The main tourist attractions in São Tomé are essentially the paradisiac beaches. Thing is, I'm not very fond of beaches. I'm much more attracted to the culture, history, and social aspects of the country.
As much as I read, Roça Água Izé is a clear example of how the history shaped the society, with this plantation ("Roça") that slowly shaped a city around.
The warehouse is now a cocoa museum, telling the history of the plantation owned by João Maria de Sousa Almeida. It became one of the biggest agriculture units of the country. There's not much hierarchy in the city. The administration building doesn't have a central or prominant position, standing side by side with the workshops, the carpentries, the warehouses and the people's houses. There are two hospitals, located uptown.
Most buildings are dated between 1910 and 1920, although the second hospital was built in 1928 and has become one of the most interesting buildings to visit.
I chose to present this plantation, but there are many many more, each with it's own history and culture. I invite you to buy this book with these beautiful pictures and descriptions of the many Roças in São Tomé!
