In the news: Brazil’s President Moved Out of the Presidential Palace Because of Its ‘Energy’ and ‘Ghosts’
By Gabriella Paiella, NY Mag
In August of 2016, Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff was impeached and her vice-president, Michel Temer, took her place. As part of his new position, Temer, 76, and wife Marcella, 33, moved into the official presidential residence, Alvorada Palace — but then moved back to the vice-president’s residence, Jaburu Palace, shortly afterward. And he has a very good, very relatable reason for the relocation: ghosts.

“I felt something strange there. I wasn’t able to sleep right from the first night. The energy wasn’t good,” he reportedly told Brazilian news outlet Veja. “We even started to wonder: Could there be ghosts?”
The U.K. Independent Newspaper quoted Temer: "Marcela felt the same thing. Only Michelzinho, who went running from one end to the other, liked it."
He joked that they had even started to wonder whether there were ghosts in the modernist palace which was inaugurated in 1958.
The Palácio da Alvorada is the official residence of the President of Brazil. It is located in the national capital of Brasília, on a peninsula at the margins of Paranoá Lake.
