New Zealand

When somebody ask me “which country would you like to visit?” my mind travel around the whole world and I can’t decide where begin. There are so many places that I would like to visit. But, first, I think that it’s necessary to know very well my own country and Latin America before travel to another country. I would to know my own culture and my Latin-American roots before to visit another country, because in this way I could share with the foreigners my traditions, my knowledge, and the different American languages, between other things. But, I think that travel around South America it’s relatively easy for me in this moment (we say "in a short period"). But if somebody tell me “Camila, I give you all money that you want” I would use that money for travel to New Zealand. Why New Zealand? The answer is very simple: The Lord of the Rings. I read the trilogy of Tolkien, but when I saw the movies I hallucinated with the landscapes. If I had the possibility of to travel to New Zealand I would like to take the "Lord of the Rings Tour" at Auckland and to know “The Shire” and the main locations of this movie.

Well, really I just have a touristic interest in this country, I didn’t would like to live there o studying, but undoubtedly it must be an amazing place for stay a season.

All you need is love!

Hello everybody, today I’m going to talk about love <3
What is love? I think that we can analyze and interpret this thing in many different ways…

For me, love is the driving force of our life. Love can do everything! The capacity of change anything is only possible through of love… I think that this is one of the most important characteristics of this feeling.
Of course, there are many different ways to love: friendship, family love, love of neighbor, love of nature, love the simple things of life, couple love, love of knowledge, etc.
If each human being could practice some of this ways to love every day, undoubtedly this world would be better.
So guys, remember always make love not war!

Hello classmates!

Today I talk you about this semester and my expectations for the end of this academic year. As we know, this year has been very special because we have been witness of the most important social movement of the last twenty years: the fight of people for a free and high quality education.

After of six months of fight, our university (and the majority of the higher education institutes) decided return to the class, so… here we are… Honestly I would have preferred don’t back to class for respect with the secondary students who still protest for the public education and because the Government don’t give us guarantee of an improvement in the educational system. But I should respect the institutional decision.

For me, study in summer is terrible, because I hate climate of Santiago and I’d like stay in my parent’s home for the Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. But in this scenario I expect the semester to be good, and I hope that the time pass very fast because I’d take vacations in February.

Besides this is my last semester, so I took just two subjects: Taller de Investigación and Prehistoria de Chile Central. When I finish these subjects, I will be archaeology graduate.

I hope you have a good semester too… Lucky!
