I'm not really interested on world's cup, but I do understand the passion people have for it.
I think I'll see just the games of my own country, because for me will be a lost of time to see all the others games, but not because I don't care about the world's cup but because I' ve never understood really the football game. Every time some one have explained to me the rules I understand them at first but I forgot them inmediatly... maybe I need to see more football games.

I believe that I don’t have a favorite web site, but I do have an addiction to some pages (that isn’t the same thing).
Those pages are Facebook and Gmail.
Facebook has become the page that I really need to visit like three times a day, because by this one I can know about my friends in all senses, emotional -not in a direct way but in the sense that if they had a good or a bad day, and other stuff-, about how they are going on in their studies or works, etc… In this page I can find all stuff like that about my friends or family… but it doesn’t mean that we don’t talk or see us in the “real life” with the closer ones because of this way of communication (that it’s one of the risks that have these pages).
The other one it’s my mail; I really don’t know why, but I do need to visit it as many times as I go on the internet. This has become a habit and also a need… besides I really don’t have much mail to see every day. I think those are that kind of things that you find you doing without a real reason, like the way you brush your teeth or the way you hold the pencil… you just find yourself doing that things in that way.
But despite this needs I see other pages like Google Earth, YouTube, My Space and Wikipedia…
(I have to admit that I feel shame of myself because of this addiction)

My Holidays
I don’t really take holidays too often, however I have one that result interesting for me.
It was the summer of 2007, and with my boyfriend at that time decided to go to the National Park “Conguillio”, located in Temuco, IX region.
A friend of him had to travel from Santiago to Temuco, so he offered to takes us by car, and as we didn’t were hurry to arrived, we take a calm trip and made some stops in the way to meet some rivers and the city of Chillan.
We arrived in my aunt’s house in Temuco, and at the next day we started our road to Conguillio. My aunt give us a lift until the entrance of the park we’ve been choosed, but when he realized that that entrance was at 30 kilometers of the camping, in a rocky way, in the middle of nothing without water and with heavy backpacks, he decided to take us to a nearest entrance to camping… at first we didn’t like the idea, because we want to walk and have a backpacker experience, but when we realized that the way was really hard to traveler and that by car takes like two hours, we thanks a lot the worry of my aunt.
Our lucky get until there… that night, we’ve installed the tent in a good place, prepared some food, give a short walk in the forest, but something was in the air… the araucarias seems like there were talking because of the wind.. Something strange…
At the next day, we waked up early for our first trekking..
When we opened the tent, we realized that it was sowing!
The spectacle was beautiful! but it was February, in ours vacations, with summer clothes…fortunately our tent resist well at the sowing, but our clothes were wet, also our shoes… the cold was too heavy, and sadly I’ve got a frozen foot.
When the sowing stop, we could meet a beautiful road of the park to the Araucaria Madre, that it’s the biggest Araucaria (in that park at least). It was wonderful to walk and see the tall Coigües, with their bunch full of snow, the wet air, everything green and white.
Because of my foot we couldn’t stay longer at the park; we only stayed there for three days.
Finally, we go out with the guardian parks, and take a bus to Temuco….
It was a short but intense experience.

A free post..

Today I have to talk about a free item, so I’m going to talk about what I’ve done yesterday.
Like an usual Wednesday I’ve study guitar in the morning, after I’ve take my lunch, then I go on with the study, and then, nearly six in the afternoon, I went to the USACH to a classic concert. This time was a special one because a friend played with the orchestra.
He played the Flute Concert of Jacques Ibert, a French composer of the XX’s century. This is the only concert he had for the instrument, and the orchestra needs to be little, so it’s takes the name of Camera Orchestra.
The concert in general is beautiful and easy to hear; I’ve never had the opportunity to listen it before, but this time (I think) was the best first time. Always it’s nice to see someone making music, if is a friend it’s better, but when someone you know it’s playing with an orchestra it’s amazing. It was really exiting to see Vicente playing the concert yesterday, besides he played it extremely great, but also because you can see in 15 minutes the result of years of work. If you consider that, it gives you something to think about.
He played by memory, something really hard because you need a lot of concentration above all if it’s the first time you‘re playing with an orchestra, and also dedicates the concert to a teacher of him, now deceased.
Nothing more to said; congratulations for my friend Vicente, who played wonderful yesterday… I hope I can follow in his footstep.

A Photograph

This picture was taken by Juan Soto, a classmate, in the cafe of the “Teatro del Lago”, in Frutillar, just last year after the closing night concert we gave in that theater, because of the “Working week of Classical Guitar”. That was the first time I went to that city… it’s so small but really beautiful (and the best tarts I’ve tried are there).
In this picture appears a classmate from the university (the girl in glasses), a girl who studies in a city near to there, me and Patricia Dixon, a guitarist who gave us master classes in that opportunity.
I like this picture because all the women who participated in the course appear in it, but the most important one it’s Patricia. I found in her a wonderful woman. I think she shows us different possibilities of life with the music; she tries to open our minds to a new way to stand up in front of the instrument, and what’s more, she had the tact to talk with us and help us to find our virtues and how to fix our problems.
With her I really felt in confidence. I appreciated the opportunity of meeting her a lot.

A country I would like to visit

A country… I’ve always wanted to visit no just A country, but many and in Europe. I have no idea why, but since I was a child I've had this wish.
I’ve always imagined myself traveling and living in countries like France, Germany, Portugal, England, Italy and in the lastes years, Spain.
I’ve always felt attracted by the architecture, the history and the culture… I can remember that in the school one of my favorite class was Universal History, and also I can remember that my sister’s favorite books was about the European culture and the bloody stories of the kings…
Some years ago, my sister with her husband went to live to Barcelona for two years; and a closer friend it’s living there too. They told me a lot about the culture and how the people live there; something that makes me ‘click’, was the cultural movement that had the people there. Maybe we have an interesting culture to visit too, but when I speak of music, I think always in European one, because we try to learn this language since the first note, and that it’s something we cannot deny. That is one of the reasons that make me wish to travel there, and Spain, because of the language I think maybe nearest to start knowing the Old Continent.

Corrections on Camila’s Blog:
One of my favorite things I like to do is travel. Making journeys of Chile with a rucksack is something that I do every time I can, specially in vacations.

I don't really have a favorite place to escape from Santiasko, because I always try to go to a different location, but a place that I go two times and is near to Stgo is the National Reserve Rio Cipreses, near to Rancagua, up in the mountains.

In 2009 I went for first time, and made a real impression on me, because is a incredible big place, full of nature, rivers, birds and the mountais look so beautiful. My intention was to cover all the reserve, but that was impossible in 3 days, because the road was very long and the treking was so exhausting.

In the camping, we install the tent to sleep in the cold night near to the mountains, and after to the treking, we enjoy the landscape, the cold river and the sound of the birds and water.

And too the sky full of stars in the night, something impossible in Santiago.

Good luck to everyone of you

This week I had to read a classmate Blog, and it's Camila’s Blog.
My first impression about it, was that it’s simple and nice to reed because of the colors and the order.
It has four posts about different things of her personal life, but I prefer two: Her Favorite Movie, and What does she do on her free time.
The first one describes the picture “The Constant Gardener”; I found fun the way she has got to that movie, because I think is not a coincidence how that special movies come to us; in this case because of her mom; this movie causes a big impression on her… after reed her post I really want to see that picture.
The second one describes her free time; I really identify with her way to escapes to the routine. The streets she describes, every time I can I walk through them, also the parks, because I study in the center of Santiago, and those places are near of my University.
The photos she uses in her Blog are nice, and the most amazing one it’s on her Favorite place of Chile post.
The last thing I have to said it's that I like the way Camila describes her life.
Good luck to you Camila!

About Hobbies

In the moment I can’t tell something in particular… in my free time I used to see movies on TV, play and watch videos on the internet, go out with my friends, to knit, etc…
Nevertheless, other years I have been taking classes of different types of dance.
When I was at school, I used to be part of the folklore group; later in high school, I became interested in Afro Dance. This is a hard kind of dance because you need a lot of control and, at the same time, relaxed movements… it’s really fun trying to learn it.
After that I started in classes of Flamenco; this is really a fun and passionate dance; also it’s hard, because you need control of your arms, legs, feet, expressions, and a lot of character too.
Then, when I was 20, I talked with a teacher in the dance school of the university, and I finally realized one of my deep dreams… Taking classes of Academic Technique or Classical Ballet; regretfully I could only practice this dance until last year because of the obligations of this year, however, I can truthfully say that just the opportunity of being able to do this was a reward for me.

One of my Favorite's movies: "Tous les Matins du Monde"

Like teacher Simon says, it's hard to find just one film to choose between all... but one I can allaws say that it's one of my favorites, it's "Tous les Matins du Monde" from the director Alain Corneau, made in 1991.
This film i'ts about Marin Marais, an important violist of the cort of Luis XIV; he reminds the hard years or learning with the Mr. of Saint Colombe. This man didn't writes nothing that he compossed, at the way that was used in that time, and had a particular form to theach: for him the music was in everithing.
The first time I saw it, I was with some friends in the house of my friend's boyfriend, when I was 15 years old, a warm day of fall, like today.
The reasons why i like it?
The performance, the plot, the photograph, the colors... the way so real when the music stop to be a job; when the search of the sence and feelins it's the aim.... you can realise how much i like this picture!
I think this movie showme one of the things that we can´t show to anyone about the sence of play music, because it's something you only can feel.
It's a slow, emotional and beautifull picture.

My earthquake experience

That day i was indesisive about go out or not -but be alone at home was less interesting- so i call a friend.
He ad a party with friends that at moment i just had seen once, but i'm no afraid about meet new people, so we go there.
In the party fortunately i found some people who talk and dance, friends of friends. At the moment it was fun. The house was nice and it was there's a lot of nice people too.
When everithing started i was dancing whith a friend salsa, and we didn't realised until someone yelled "it's shaking!" that moment we all were outside in the yard's house.
Everyone kept still; some people stayed under the grapevine, others and me stayed under the terrace, my friend with someone else stayed under a three... some one was near to the pool, so he got wet (after all pass, we all laugh of him).... all that things i can saw while it was shaking;
At that moment i was thinking "it's going to stop, be calm", but in one moment i realised that it didn't stop... then one guy started to yell "it's the end, this it's the end!" (i think it was the same one who give advice of the shake..) someones try to get calmed him.. we all saw that we couldn´t stay standing... now we were afraid.
In this moment i feared that the earth would open up... but then it started to stop.
I really thought it was only a shake... the ligth was off so someone brouth a car and turned on the radio... we all were listening... "the earthquake was grade 8"... i couldn't believe it!
We all were trying to call our family... my friend was desespered, because his parents were at that moment in Valparaiso with his little son. A friend of him was in the same situation.
Fortunaly they could talk whith them's familys after an hour.
My sister was with her family in my parent's house in Curicó. She called me and telled that all my family there was fine.
After an hour and a alf we decided to get back to hour houses.
In my house was all fine.. like nothing happened. Amazing.
After all, i just could realise that it was a really eathquake when the ligth come on and i could see the news..
For me just was a large shake...

My Favorite place to go out..

I really don't have a special place to go when i get tired of Santiago, but i do like to get out... and i don't matter what place. Nevertheless i do have my preferences... i like so much the beach especially when it's calm and with not many people, and i also like the south with the rain and the big green forests. I haven't the oportunity to know the north yet, but i don't like hot places so much ... so it doesn´t matter really.

In the week i usuall go for a walk with my sister's dog and i also go to the park to run, read or ride my bike... these thing relax me a lot.

so .. i think that i could like any place calm .
