One of my favourite dish...

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to tell you about one of my favourite dish. It’s really difficult to me to choose only one of them, because I enjoy so much almost every kind of food!!  :p (except those with meat… because I’m vegetarian).
If I must choose one favourite dish I think that would be pasta. I don’t remember where or when was the first time that I ate it, but maybe it was at home when I was a little girl :)
I think that everybody knows the recipe: you put some water to boil, and then you put the pasta in the pot, you wait a few minutes…and it’s ready!! Maybe one of the reasons that I like it is because is so easy to cook…
I also like it, because you can do a lot of different sauces to add to this dish, and always are so delicious! I think that one of my favourite sauces is pesto. But if you enjoy cooking, I think that is great that you can create sauces from different combinations of ingredients that you have in your fridge!
The last time that I went to an Italian restaurant was in February. I was on a fieldwork at Temuco, and one night we were to have a dinner at Madonna. We arrived very late, and we think that maybe the restaurant could be closed. We were so lucky, because it was open and we were really starving after a hard day of work! When we ordered, all the dishes were different so we can taste all of them. And when the waitress brought our dishes, were huge!! So we were very happy :D

Daybreak at Ahu Tongariki

Hi! Today I want to show you a photograph that to me is very special and reminds me a lot of different moments from the summer 2009. This is a pic that I took of Ahu Tongariki in Easter Island at daybreak. I like it because between clouds you can see some sun beams and the presence of Moais in front of the scene is very impressive. Although I think that this picture can’t reflect the beautiful colors and all the feelings that I had when I was there.
This photograph was the result of a very long night, that actually start the day before when with my friends rented a car to go all over the island. In the evening we decided to see the daybreak at Ahu Tongariki, so we must wake up at 4 am to drive to that area of the island. The trip was so funny… the driver was frightened because was very very dark, we couldn’t see anything around us, only that the car lights illuminated. And we start to talk about “Solitario y Crazy Joe”, a name that we give an imaginary person that supposedly was stopped our car. All this story start when we said to some native friends that we want to go to that Ahu and they warned us to be careful if any people want a ride.
When we finally found the place the daybreak was close, so we were very excited. We waited for an hour, by this time was less dark and we realized that was very cloudy, but we still have hope that the sky was going to clear.
As you can see in the photograph, that never happened… but I have beautiful memories from this day.

An important day...

I think that a really important day was the first day of my first big trip. It was on the summer of 2008, and with a friend we went to Peru! We take a bus early in the morning to Arica, and after many many hours, next day to be more specific, we finally arrived to this city. That day we went all over Arica and next day we went to Chungara Lake! It’s so beautiful!! And when we were there, started to hail so we can saw the flamingos only from the bus :(

After that day, we start our real trip, the most important because it was the first one that we did without family. We crossed the frontier in the evening. In Tacna we bought tickets to Arequipa and we had to run to the bus because it leaves the city in that moment. After Arequipa, we went to Puno and the Titicaca Lake, and after this city we went to Cuzco!

The last day in Puno we left a message in the hotel of a friends group saying that we were going to Cuzco and that we can meet the next day in the main square at 8 pm. And we did it! :) Then we all together traveled around the city and all its archaeological sites, museums and some discotheques.

And of course…we went to Machu Picchu! This was another important day, especially after climb Huayna Picchu or “Young Peak” (Machu Picchu is the “Old Peak”), a mountain that rises over Machu Picchu and when you reach its top you can see all this important Inca city!

This day marks the start of a great trip!

My laptop :)

My favourite piece of technology is my laptop. I got it 5 years ago and in spite of that now is a little broken, it has been very very useful! And I can say that I’m a little addicted to it.
I use my laptop mainly for three things: to do works for the university, to listen music and of course..internet! I use it all the time…generally when I arrive to my home I switch on to check my e-mail and sometimes I don’t turn it off until the night.
Since two years ago I have Linux system on my laptop and I really like how it works! One of the things that I like the most is that you don’t need to worried about virus :)
I like my laptop because it allows me to be connected and I can save lots of documents, pictures, and music that I like. Also I like it because I can move it everywhere…the only problem is that now sometimes if I move it I don’t know if going to work…
For this reason I had to buy a new one… and it will arrive at my home tomorrow, so I’m very happy :)
