Hi people, how are you? I hope find =). Well, in this post I will talk about a perfect or ideal job.
Obviously if I can choose a job y would choose the job of a Geographer, because I love Geography... aja, no! it’s a joke. I really like geography, but if I could choose an ideal job I will choose something fun, easy and well paid.
The job I would choose would be: Host of Travels documentaries of beautiful places in all the world like the tv programs of National Geographic. I think every people who likes nature and travel, would like this job. I choose this job because I think is very fun: I can travel for all the world absolutely free!! I can know many interesting and beuaty places without paying for it! And I coul meet differents cultures and people of different kind of lifestyle. I think that would be an increible job because I could to things I like (things for today would pay) but I’d receive a salary!. Altough I not work all my life in this job. I think that job is great, but for a period of time, for a period of life. That is because I want to have a family, and family isn’t compatible with a job like this.
The nomadic life that involves a job like that, is not the only disadvantage, because although the job is “perfect”, I think that I need a job where I feel that I gave something to the world (to the people), and this job is a little individualistic, because I know I can do thing for the people and the common good through another job (like a geographer!).
That’s all, goodbye ¡
Hi geoblogers ! I like very much the topic of today: A famous person I would like to meet. I really like music,so many people of the rock world come to my mind, specially people of band of the seventies like Ian Gillan, John Lennon, Mark Farner, Mick Jagger, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and also people of contemporary bands like Bruce Dickinson, Chris Cornell, Brandon Boyd, Scott Weiland and specially Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters (one of my favorite bands).
But, there is one person I would have liked to know with all my heart: Robert Plant, the vocalist of Led Zeppelin.
I think Robert Plant is the best vocalist ever, in the history of rock. Many other musicians have been inspired by his musical work. I would like to know him because I like to ask him what is his perception of music, what means the music in his life and how started the creative process of Led zeppelin. I’d like to talk with Robert about so many song of led zeppelin that are a mystery to me. The music of led zeppelin is one of the most complex works in the history of rock music, because it contains many metaphors in its musical structure and lyrics. Every note, a very sound and every word, has a meaning.
For all of this, I think that meeting Robert Plant and have a conversation with him, must be one of the most incredible things in the world, he is a musical genius that marked a before and after in the history of rock. Moreover, if I have the possibility to hear him play and sing in the conversation, would be the best meeting ever!
… but.. this only a dream.
Enjoy Led Zeppelin!!!

Definitely my perfect day will be when Foo Fighter come to Santiago and give a show where they play all my favorites songs (Like everlong, generator, this is a call, word forward, wheels, resolve, learn to fly, times like these, and many others!) .
But.. that day is very distant, so I think is better to talk about a perfect and simple day at the same time.
In the past, I was think that my perfect day had been with someone particulary special for me and just the presence of this person would make the day perfect. But, with the time, I’ve learn that particulary person is not necesary, because the most simple things of the daily life can make perfect days.
For this, my perfect day will be alone or with any of my friends who likes the things I like to do. First of all, I will wake up early around 8 o’clock to go to some place with mountains to climb, like Cajón del Maipo. That can will be better if I can go biking. After that, i’d like to go to some place with water to swim, if the mountains are in the coast, the beach would be the perfect place !
Next, I will go to home to make lunch, but not any food. I like to eat meat or fish with many kind of differents salads. For the dessert ice cream would be sensational, in special flavors like mango, hazelnut, passion fruit and others.
In the afternoon, I ‘d like to enjoy the landscape, go to swim if I’m in the beach, go to walk around the city if I’m in Santiago.
Finally, in the evening I’d like to go to somewhere to listen to live music; jazz, blues or rock. If that isn’t possible, I’d like to be in any place when I can listen to good music; in house with friends, a a friend’s house, etc.
In conclusion, my perfect day must have: Natural landscape and activites in this landscape, good food, friends and music. That’s all that I Need.

Hi classmathes and persons who visit my blog, today I’m talking about good places to visit in Santiago.
First of all, I tell you that the places I have to recommend are principally places where you can go to enjoy natural landscapes. This is because I think that is very important, in a contaminated city like Santiago, to find some places to be free of smog and see the natural beauty of the city.
The historic old town in center is beautiful. The old buildings and their architecture must to be visited. For example "The Museum of beauty arts" , The Presidential Palace "La Moneda", The Central House of University of Chile, and many public buildings (the ministry, etc).
First of all, I think tourist should go to Hill Pochoco in Lo Barnechea to climb and enjoy the trekking and nature. From the top of the hill, the tourist can have a spectacular view of almost of everything in Santiago. A panoramic view.
hen, the tourist should go to the historic old town to visit the places I mentioned earlier, and after that they can go the restaurant “Los Buenos Muchachos” in Av. Ricardo Cumming 1031, to eat one of the best Chilean food.
inally, The tourist should visit the “Barrio Bellavista” because is the center of the nocturnal life in Santiago. In this place are so many places to: Take a drink, see live music, go to dance different kind of music (cumbia, reggeaton, electronic,salsa, etc) or just enjoy a good place with friends.
I recommend “Patio Bellavista” to take a drink and eat something special and after that go to Salsoteca “La Maestra Vida”.
1- Cerro Pocho in the morning
2- Old town
3- Restaurant Los Buenos Muchachos
4- Patio Bellavista
5- Salsoteca Maestra Vida.

Hello persons who visit my blog. Today I’m talking about a shop I like. Well, is difficult to me talk about this topic because I hate the shop places! I don’t like the agglomeration of people and their desperation to buy.
I like two shops for different reasons: Patronato and “Los Caracoles de Providencia”. I like Patronato because is a very good place to buy clothes because there is plenty and the prices are very cheap. But you need a whole day to find good things, so Patronato has advantages and disadvantages, is a really exhausting place. The first time I went to “Patronato” was when I was ten years old aprox. My mum took me to buy clothes and I remember that I thought “ Oh my good! This is incredible, so many clothes of different colors”.
I’m going to Patronato a few days in the year, because I didn’t have money to buy always. The last thing I bought was a t-shirt.
The other place I like is “Los caracoles de Providencia”. The first time I visited that place was when I was 12 years old. I went with my friends of the school to buy clothes. Then, I’ve went to los caracoles one time a year with my Father to buy my Birthday present. I like this place because it reminds me of the beautiful afternoon with my dad, where I first choose a garment and after that we went to a restaurant to eat and drink something. The last thing that my dad bought to me in los caracoles, was a beautiful jacket.
I think I like this kind of shop because I love clothes, and always I have something to buy.
