Today I will talk about a delicious topic: The food, my favourite food. I must admit that I don’t have an only favourite dish, but there is a kind of plateful that I love! They are the stews and soups. I love the almost all the traditional foods such as beans (and pomegranate beans too), lentils, carbonada, and other dish which are prepared in the north of our country, such as patasca and ají de calabaza. In general I love the food that containing many vegetables, soup and seasoning. The patasca is a soup that is prepared in high Andean areas of Perú and Bolivia. Its name comes from the Quechua: phatasqa, which means burst or broken. Originally it prepares with pork or beef meat, but I don’t eat any kind of meat. The last year to taste a patasca dish made with soy meat! Was the perfect combination: potatoes, sweet red pepper, corn, soy meat, onion, other vegetables and many seasoning!. Clearly that is not to repeat the dish! Rather it`s better to take a nap after it.
I hope you can try this delicious dish!
See you the next class!

It is a true reflection of Inti playing on a common day!.
Also the picture captures the sunlight on the head of inti. I like a lot! Inti on Inti. The word “Inti” means sun in Quechua, Language used by much of the Andean peoples.
I think the most important is the composition of the image. The perspective that it was taken is very beautiful. You can not see the face of my nephew. This gives a hint of mystery and sweetness to the picture. And the pacifier gives more that sense of tenderness.
Maybe it will not cause the same sweetness in you all, because you need to know Inti to understand how important image. So it'll show you a other photo to love it so much like me.
This picture was taken the same day. Day when the afternoon sun made that the colors stand out much!
Well, I hope you appreciate this image as much as me!
See you on next class!

Today I will tell you about a very interesting piece of technology. This instrument has facilitated many aspects on my life! I`m talking about digital camera. That is a good option if you decide to explore a career in which you must travel sick. Also, it`s very useful to record each moment of your life. Best of all is that is cheap!
In the old days we had to buy film. Also after taking all the pictures we had to reveal the roll of camera. Now that is not necessary! The digital camera to make possible to store many photos in a single memory card. That it helps us when we need to take many pictures and we select only one. For example, in my career always I need to record each materials found in the archaeological sites. And whit the digital camera we can check to quality of photos in the fieldwork.
Finally, I want to tell you that I like this piece of technology because it can be an excellent company: on your travels, on your family moments, on moments whit your friend, even in your daily life!
I hope you appreciate this piece of technology as much as me!

Today I will write about my musical preferences, and give you some facts to rejoice those days when they feel sad. I actually like to hear a little of everything, but what I like to hear is folk and Latin rhythms. Also I love the Chilean rock and some troubadours, but when I`m sad I always listen to cheerful music. A few years ago I do African dance, so I've met a lot of music that mixes Latin American folklore with African rhythms. This music is very lively!
A good representative of these rhythms is Toto la Momposina. She`s a Colombian singer who mixes musical instruments such as bagpipes and yembe. I totally recommend you!
In Chile there is also very good musicians in this style: La Máquina de Candela is a group that plays Colombian cumbia with an African base. This is very funny!. Also, is Africandina. This is a group that can be drawn from sadness to anyone! I love listening them for to forget I'm sad, but I like more to see their shows. They mixed Andean instruments such as the flute and panpipes with different types of drums. But the most beautiful are the colors and energy of dance.
I hope you can meet some of these groups! With this music, there is no reason to be sad!

Hi once again!
Today I will tell you something interesting about a movie you should see: Into the Wild. Last week I enjoyed for the fourth time this surprising story. This movie had premiered in 2007 and its scriptwriter and director is Sean Penn. It is a film starred by Emile Hirsch, William Hurt, Marcia Gay Harden and Catherine Keener.
The movie is based on the homonymous book written by Jon Krakauer in 1996. The most surprising is this book is that it was based on a real story. The plot is about Christopher McCandless` life, a young man who leaves his studies and stars off a trip completely remote from civilization. When he arrives to Alaska, he begins a constant struggle for survival. This movie makes you think about the meaning of life!
I totally recommend you!
