A Rua Boa Vista da minha infância

Das recordações de Bevenuto Paiva

Para quem chegou em Macau depois que os charcos e alagados foram aterrados e construídos, difícil imaginar como era a cidade. A rua Boa Vista, por exemplo: quando cheguei em Macau nos anos 80, achava estranho que a rua tivesse aquele nome, pois era uma rua sem horizontes. Bevenuto Paiva, quando criança morou na rua Boa Vista e estendia seu olhar até os confins do Porto do Roçado, mas hoje, o descampado não existe mais e os horizontes sumiram. Ficaram na memória de Bevenuto, que faz uma bela ode à rua da sua infância.   De Claudio Guerra para o baú de Macau

Rua Boa Vista

Bevenuto Paiva [*]

 

Feliz o legislador que te batizou, com nome tão sugestivo, pois durante tantos anos realmente, tu oferecias uma visão muito bela quando se descortinava o olhar para o Porto do Roçado e para a Escola Reunida,onde se procurava o “saber”. Ou quem se dirigia para a Imburana, para a Barraca, para o Maxixe. Tu eras a porta de saída, tu oferecias um belo panorama, quando se procurava a linha do horizonte.

Nenhum pescador venderia o seu peixe no mercado, trazido do Porto da Pescaria sem passar por ti. Eras o caminho mais curto, passagem obrigatória.

Para onde foram os teus primeiros moradores? O que houve com eles, que não despediram dos que ficaram? Certamente não encontraram portadores para mandarem noticias.

Onde foram os amigos do meu pai Manoel Bevenuto? Por onde andaram José Honorato, Elpidio, Ramiro(estivadores), João de Arruda, Seu Aprígio com o seu curral, Dalvirene de Anizio Pimentel, Chico Doido e João de Paiva se nem os galhos dessas árvores frondosas ninguém encontra mais?

O progresso chegou, mas tu permaneces a mesma na memória dos teus primeiros moradores. Do teu passado tens um marco vigilante a ti auscultar, embora não desempenhe as mesmas funções de outrora – o Rabo da Cachorra – local que marcava a passagem para rua Princesa Izabel pelo beco de Zé Sarrambeca. Hoje o local existe como um marco simbólico daquele passado nebuloso que já está apagado.

Vives num tempo de euforia, numa transformação que causa inveja àqueles que conhece o teu passado, tens um comércio pujante, sempre crescente, por ficar mais próxima do Mercado Público, rua calçada, água, luz telefone, centro nevrálgico de um comercio em expansão, estás com uma vida ascendente, onde todos te conhecem e ti querem.


Aquela rua antiga e um quarteirão que não tinha casa pela frente, desapareceu. Aquela baixa no meio da rua que juntou água e invadiu a nossa casa e que assim nos obrigou a se mudar para outra residência, desapareceu. Isto tudo é resultante do progresso, embora tardio, mas que sempre chega. O teu passado não está apagado, ele permanece na memória da História.

    The other thing Beats Audio headphones are often criticised for is their bass-heaviness. In fact, in some models the bass is so strong that you can barely hear frequencies in the rest of the spectrum. Once again, this is a problem that’s starting to disappear in some of the brand’s new higher-end products, such as the Executive headphones, but that by no means makes them flawless.

  5. The frequency response is certainly more coherent in the Executive than in many Beats headphones. There’s no sign of that frustrating 15 dB volume difference between the lowest and highest frequencies. Instead, there are just a few extra decibels throughout the lower half of the output spectrum. The strongest frequency band in the Executive headphones is actually the low-mediums, which has a flattering effect on voices.

  6. The only small problem we encountered is that the headband is padded almost as much on the outside as it is on the inside. The Executive headphones therefore feel quite tight on your head, which some users may not like too much. On the upside, though, the memory foam earpads are pretty comfortable.

  7. Hi! Your post rocks as well as getting a legitimate wonderful fully grasp!??

  8. To build a brand that stands above the rest–especially in the rapid shifts of retailing–you have to do more than offer the best products and service in your industry. You have to create a following that will stand by you when things go wrong, push you to be better, and lift you above the competition. When you achieve that, you have to be as loyal to your fans as they are to you.
