    Well I have a great pleasure on receiving Dr.Eva Siekerska from Canada, at home ,with my family, on tasting some delicious brazilian food prepared by my very older mummy, when she stayed in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil, at IBGE/CDDI for a IPGH meeting, and I worked there about 3 years. I shown to her some at the IBGE/CDDI Library some precious old Atlas from Poland where she was born. Some years in advance we participated at the 18th ICC/ICA/ACI in Stokholm,Sweden, in June, 1997. At the GT Gender in Cartography I presented the speech named “What Is Gender In Cartography?”,and more “Cartographic Alternatives in the Amazon” a presented printed paper on the Proceedings… the Land of a German Brazilian Queen Silvia Somerlath…where the Brazilian Football Selection won the first time in 1958 Cup!!!!
