Of all Portomarín neighbors we spoke to develop this mosaic, Maria Josefa Vazquez is the oldest. With 91 years of age exudes sympathy and memories of a time far behind in memory and he shows with fun old stories of children: "Sometimes, between San Pedro and San Juan stones were flying around us". Maria Josefa reminds a too distant Portomarín from the 20s and 30s of last century, also considerably harder: "There was poor and rich as now. We were poor. My parents had twelve children, of whom nine lived and only me is now here. We worked really hard in the little land we had and that we had leased ".
