Chao Blog!

Hello, everyone, today in my last post I will give you my opinion about writing in blogs. Well I never was very interested in blogs before, but now that I had to work with one, I think is very funny and interesting, because you can give your opinions about some topic and the people read it. Is a very good method of expression in internet, you can say everything that you want to say, and also you can find ideas about a lot of topics, sometimes unusual, but funny.
One of the things that most I enjoyed to write was to talk about my city, Santiago, because is a topic that can give a lot of options to talk about, and there is much people that have different ideas about this city and the contrast is very big, and that make it very interesting. Another topic that I enjoyed much is this. I never had read about what people think about the blogs, and to talk about it can give me and idea about how much is accepted the blog as a method of expression in internet.
The blog of Lorena Urrutia was the blog that I read it more, because she is a very good friend and their ideas are little strangers, and also I think that she is a very crazy person and that is because I like to read her crazy ideas.
And finally I think to write a blog in English is a very good method to learn English, because you must think a way to give a grammatical order to your ideas, and also you always find new words to add to your own vocabulary. I have learned a lot using the blog, now I write faster and can think in English more faster, is a great tool to learn.

Las Meninas

Hello everyone, today I will be glad to talk you about my favourite piece of art. Well this is a very interesting topic for me, because I have share with an artist all my life; my father, and well I suppose that something of artist flows in my veins. After to think a lot to make my choice, my favourite piece of art is “Las Meninas” by Diego Velazquez. This is a painting of a Spanish artist, finished at year 1656. I saw it for first time the past year, and my father was the person that showed to me. He explains me what was behind the painting and I was startled. This painting represents the royal family of Felipe IV, and the principal character is “La infanta Margarita de Austria”. Why this painting is amazing for me? Because the technique that was used to pint it. If you can see the Painting very close, you will see that Diego Velazquez just use little strokes to give form to the characters, then you think, how with a so simple technique can make that effect so real?
On the other hand, there is another thing that impressive me. If you see the painting very carefully you will see that the men who is painting, and then you see the mirror behind the room, you can deduce that the men is Diego Velazquez and he is painting the Kings of Spain, because they are the persons that appear in the mirror. Of course you can give your own interpretation to the painting.

Hello, this time I will talk you about the city where I live and where I was born, Santiago. Is the capital of Chile, it’s very big, it has a lot of citizens about six millions, it’s the most populated city of this country. The rhythm of life is very fast, and sometimes this can be a little stressing. It’s very difficult to talk about all the bad things that the city has, or about the goods, because it’s a very different city in many ways, but maybe a bad feature can be this, the differences; that exist in the society, the exclusion in the periphery, in the neighbours. The social exclusion it’s too big, and breach between rich and pours it’s abysmal, the people can watch this with their owns eyes, you can be walking in a street, and in one side you can see great houses, very luxuries and for the other side pour houses, very humble.
About the good things of the city, can be the touristic attractive that the city has, is a city full of history, because this was first city founded in Chile; has historical places like the Santa Lucia Hill, the Historical neighbours, and well have all the things that a modern city can have, distraction places, commerce, shops, etc. Personally the things that I prefer of the city are the parks and the open places.
I think this city would be a better place for live if the contamination decrease, because the smog is too many and can be bad for healthy.
The tips that I would give to tourist are, the Bellavista Street, a classical place for diversion in pubs, the Santa Lucia and San Cristobal Hills, to have a good panoramic of the city, the central market, to know a little about the traditions and well basically that.

Metal Horse

Hello everyone and happy New Year. Today I will talk about my animal in the Chinese zodiac, the horse. The horoscope says that the horse are very strength and animated, this is a quality that I’m agree because is corresponded with me, I’m a person very energy and always do things with the best disposition. I feel very strength. Also says that horses are outgoing, this sometimes is corresponded with me, it depend of the person with I’m treating, if the person seems to me a little reliable, I will be lees outgoing with him. And well it says that like me to be the center of attention, and this is not true, I prefer to have a low profile. The horoscope have right in that I’m a friendly person and with a good humour. Also says that horses are very healthy and that is true, I hardly ever fall sick, and many times this depends of my mood. I like a lot the free spaces; I don’t know is something I cannot explain but, I feel my spirit free. About my career says that the horses enjoy to interact with other people, and well yes, I like me a lot to work with other persons, but I hate the routine and spouse that is the reason for I’m studding geography, I believe that with this career i will travel, and know may places, that will be a very dynamic career. And about power? Says that the horses enjoy the power, I don’t know, doesn’t experiment yet. Finally about relationships say that horses are very spontaneous and that they give themselves fully, and that is true to the moment, but I hope to control this someday. Well I can say that the zodiac have right just in some aspects, but the person always can change to be like it wants to be.

My favourite Christmast song

Please come home for Christmas

Bells will be ringing this sad sad news
Oh what a Christmas to have the blues
My baby's gone I have no friends
To wish me greetings once again
Choirs will be singing Silent Night
Christmas carols by candle light
Please come home for Christmas
Please come home for Christmas
If not for Christmas by New Years night
Friends and relations
Send salutations
Sure as the stars shine above
But this is Christmas
Yeah, it's Christmas my dear
It's the time of year to be with the one you love
So won't you tell me
You'll never more roam
Christmas and New Year
Will find you home
There be no more sorrow
No grief and pain
And I'll be happy, happy, once again
Ooo, there be no more sorrow
No grief and pain
And I'll be happy, Christmas, once again


Hello every one, now I will tell you about my Christmas. As all the years I had spent Christmas at home, we never go to other places in Christmas. I share a dinner with my family, after go to the church. My grandfather stayed at home, and later we gather with my uncle, my parents my grandmother and my brother. We all help in the preparation of dinner, me and my brother were in charge of the table, my mother prepared the salad and my grandmother cooked the turkey. This was a very nice dinner; we all share, talk and laugh about a lot of things. I enjoyed very much to share with my family. After the dinner we waited the midnight and as is usual my parents, my brother and I Hided in a room, because my little brother still believe in Santa Claus and he thinks that he won’t come if he see us. Then at the twelve O’clock we go to open the presents. This year I give a present to all my family. And well, we spent a couple of hours talking and drinking champagne and cola de mono. This Christmas was a very great night full of happiness and good feelings.

Las Cruces

There are many beaches in Chile that like very much, in La serena, my favourite Beach is la Herradura, but my most favourite beach is Las cruces, in the central coast. This is a very beautiful beach, but is inappropriate for a bath or swimming because the waves are very dangerous.  Is very good for relax and take a rest in the sand, I feel peaceful when I go there. And by the mornings I go out for running in the beach until Cartagena and then back. Is a very long trench and a good for exercise.  Also you can play in the sand volleyball and Sand tennis. Yes, you can take a bath to, but is forbidden and is your responsibility if you go to take a bath. Another good thing of this beach is that you can go to the video games for the nights, and the discos for dance. Also is near to other beaches  like Tabo, Quisco, Punta de Tralca, and Isla negra, and you can go there just taking a bus that will ride you there in a couple of minutes. I go every year to Las Cruces with my family, and sometimes with friends. You get there, taking a interregional Bus destination Cartagena in the Bus station of Santiago. This is my favourite beach, I go there since i was a child, and I always have fun there. But the sunset in this beach is the most beautiful sunset that I never seen.
