Dilma Roussef is from Gabrovo ?

Postby Hippyboy » Sat Oct 09, 2010 10:40 pm

Now I don't know and haven't checked this out , but according to the guys and girls down at my local , Dilma Roussef's father is a Bulgarian from Gabrovo . Now I might have been sceptical about this , but her name certainly isn't typical Brazilian , so maybe . Apparently her mother is Brazilian , and she has a very good chance of becoming the first female president of Brazil after the run-off elections there at the end of the month . Anybody verify this or otherwise . Tim

Her family background is more Brazilian than Bulgarian. Note that she uses the form "Rousev/Rouseff" whereas someone still in a Bulgarian milieu would be "Rouseva".

I wonder if she speaks Bulgarian. I doubt it.

I'm not sure how someone born in Brazil can be described as "from" anywhere in Bulgaria on the basis that one of her parents was born there...

I doubt if she speaks Bulgarian either , although you never know . She does 'look' more Bulgarian than Brazilian though , I wonder if she has relatives here in Bulgaria , very possibly I suppose . Assuming that she gets elected President then it could lead to closer ties between Brazil and Bulgaria , which would be no bad thing . Tim .

How would the average Bulgarian benefit from better links with Brazil ?

"I feel tenderness and love for Bulgaria. And I can even say that to a certain extent I do feel like I am Bulgarian, even though I have never been in the country where my father was born. My father died when I was only fifteen years old and I did not have the chance to learn Bulgarian," Dilma Rousseff said in an interview for the 24 Hours newspaper

Scot : The Brazilian economy is booming , and up to 8th in the World . I would have thought that closer economic ties might benefit Bulgaria , and perhaps bring some inward investment . Tim .
