    In an interview to weekly news magazine Veja, Brazilian President, Michel Temer, confided what led him to leave Palácio da Alvorada, the official residence of the president, and return with his wife and son to the Jaburu Palace, where he has lived since 2011 as vice president. He’s just spent a little over a week in the Alvorada.

    “The Palace of Alvorada has a lot of rooms, about eight, all very large. Everything is ample and beautiful. But I felt something weird there. I wasn’t able to sleep since the first night. The energy was not good. Marcela felt the same thing. Only Michelzinho, who kept running back and forth, liked it. We started to think: is there a ghost? (laughs). ”

    Temer decided to leave the Alvorada Palace in early March. Initially, presidential aides had said the President had not adapted to the Palace. According to them, Temer prefers the Jaburu, which he calls a cozy place with a style closer to that of a private residence.

    Despite the change, the President intends to keep using the Alvorada for important meetings with the legislators and for diplomatic events. Both palaces, the Jaburu and the Alvorada, are on the shore of Lake Paranoá.

    Since September, when deposed President Dilma Rousseff vacated the Alvorada, Temer was expected to move there, but some adaptations needed due to 7-year-old son or the President, delayed the process.

    The President surprised some when he announced that he had left the Alvorada. The modernist building, which means Dawn and was designed by renowned architect Oscar Niemeyer, would be a dream home for many.

    It has a huge pool, football field, chapel, medical center and vast lawn. But Temer, 76, and his 33-year-old wife Marcela, seem to find the cavernous, glass-fronted building spooky.

    “I felt something strange there. I wasn’t able to sleep right from the first night,” he was quoted as saying, adding: “The energy wasn’t good.”

    According to reports, the President’s wife, Marcela, felt the same thing, and only Michelzinho (their son), who went running from one end to the other, liked it.

    According to a report in Globo newspaper, Marcela brought in a priest to attempt to drive out any evil spirits, but to no avail.

    The house moving comes in the middle of a severe political crisis for Brazil, with many of Temer’s allies likely to face corruption probes.

    The President himself is battling a case in the electoral court where he is accused of having benefited from illegal donations when he and Rousseff ran together in 2014.
