THE PLACE WHERE I LIVETHE PLACE WHERE I LIVE

I live in Colunga which is a town on the coast in the North- East of Asturias; Colunga is in the Cider’s Region and It has a population of 3.908 people.
It’s has a beautiful town, with many beautiful villages like “Lastres”, “La Isla”, “Gobiendes”…
Colunga has wonderful beaches and It has many rural routes to go for a walk. Although Colunga is a small town, It has all the places that you need to live or spend your holidays (many people go there on holidays); there are churches,bars,restaurants,supermarkets… and there’s a famous museum which is The Jurasic Museum.

The weather here, sometimes, is different from the rest of Asturias because Colunga has a micro-climate. In my town there is “El Sueve”, a big mountain which influences the weather. Sometimes, “El Sueve” doesn’t let the clouds get to Colunga, but other times, “El Sueve” doesn’t let the fog leave Colunga.
In general,the weather is warm: the winter isn’t too cold and the summer isn’t too hot.

Colunga is famous for its beautiful beaches like “La Griega”, “La Isla” or “La Espasa”.Its Jurasic Museum is very famous too and tourist and students come to visit it. “El Sueve” is another attraction, because it’s the nearest mountain to the coast in Europe.

I love living here because it’s the most peaceful place where I can live. You can sleep well because there isn’t noise at night!
Here you can go for a walk, go swimming, go to the beach, to the mountain… For me, Colunga is the best!!!

THE GHOST OF GENNY CASTLE

The Ghost of Genny Castle is a short,mistery story. This story was written by John Escott in 1995.

The story is about Claire, a girl who goes to stay at her aunt’s cottage for Christmas.

In the village where her aunt lives there’s a castle with a tall and black tower; Claire wants to visist it, but the village people, and her aunt too, tell her that the castle isn’t a good place to visit, because it’s dangerous and there strange accidents allways happen so animals and people die…

One day, a boy tells Claire that in the castle there’s a ghost with fair hair; Claire thinks it’s a fantasy and she decides to visit the castle and know its secret.

The story that the book tells is really interesting because it has mystery with a ghost,witches and a old castle. The story has all the ingredients to be a good terror book but, for me, it’s very strange because the end comes too soon and I want to know more! Maybe, if the end was different I would like the book very much.

I can recomend this book for a person who doesn’t have much time because it’s short and very easy to read, but if you have time … read another book more interesting!!!

THE WIZARD OF OZ.

        The  book that I read was titled “The wizard of Oz”, written by L. Frank Baum.  

        It was an adventure book about a child called Dorothy who lived in Kansas with her family and her little black dog called Toto.  

       The weather in Kansas was very strange because there were cyclones which could move up trees, houses and people into the air.  

       One day a cyclone moved up Dorothy´s house and her dog slowly into the sky and after many hours the house fell and they arrived to a magic country called “Oz” where they met many friends like a scarecrow, a tin man and a coward lion.     

       They walked along a yellow brick road which drove them to Emerald City where lived the famous wizard of Oz, the only person who could help Dorothy and Toto to come back to Kansas and he could help her friends too, because the tin man wanted to have a heart to be able to feel or love, the scarecrow wanted to have some brains to be more clever and the coward lion wanted to be brave.    

        Although I knew the end of the book because of the film, I enjoyed a lot reading it because it was my first book read in English.

     ibiza_sunset_27_03_2008_12_23_48.jpg   Chulo   Hello, I´m Jose and I want to tell you about my first holidays in Ibiza Island.

                  When I was a teenager I was living in Barcelona with my friend and flatmate Mario who was from Ibiza. We were working as waiters in a club at nigths and we were party animals.     

                In June we had a few days off work so Mario told me: Wy don´t we go to my parent´s house in Ibiza, and I said: Wy not?    

        The next day we were at the airport looking forward to taking a plane but we lost our boarding cards so we went to Ibiza by boat. We arrived in Ibiza on Friday evening but our first night there was quite boring because most people were foreigners and we only spoke Spanish and a little French so we spent all night hoping to meet someone. 

           On Saturday morning we hired a card and drove to a beautiful beach called “Las Salinas” where people spent their time sunbathing, doing sports and listening to music all day. It was like a paradise.   

         My friend Mario was very funny and talkative so he began to talk with two beautiful girls called Bea and Maria and they laughet a lot at his jokes. Mario was very generous and he took us to have delicious seafood in a nice restaurant by the sea while we were watching the sunset. At night we went to a disco were we had a good time.   

         On Sunday, we had to come back to Barcelona but Bea and Maria told us: Wy don´t you look for a job in Ibiza and stay here this summer?

So we came back in September and later at Chrismas Bea and Maria came to Barcelona for a week but Bea stayed with me and now she´s my wife and we have two children called Mario and Maria.

The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde       The story began when an American family arrived in London. The father, Mr. Otis was a business man. He had to work in London, but he wanted to live in the countryside, near London. In London he met Lord Canterville, who had an old house: Canterville Chase and Mr. Otis thought that this house was OK ( or very well) for him and his family. Lord Canterville told him the house had a problem, it had a ghost, but Mr. Otis answered him they didn’t believe in ghosts, so he bought the house. All the family moved to Canterville Chase and from their arrival the ghost tried to frighten them, but our American family answered him with funny retorts. The ghost was very unhappy and angry. One day he met Virginia, Mr Otis’ daughter, and he told her his story. He was Sir Simon Canterville and he had murdered his wife, Lady Leonore .After that his brothers in law grabbed (took) him and tied him on a wall until he starved to death. He wouldn’t have peace till a girl helped him. Both of them disappeared and when Virginia appeared again she led her family to a dark cell where there was a skeleton. He was Sir Simon Canterville’s.  Evaluation I liked the book very much. The plot is quite simple but I laughed a lot with the funny situations where the ghost tried to scare the family.

A Special Holidays

          I went on holidays lots of times, but one of them was special. It was in July in 2002. I went on holiday with my husband and another couple of friends. We went to Tignes for a week.

         Tignes is a village in the Savoie Alps, in France. We went there to do snowboarding, sailing, sunbathing, we went to a swiming pool….. How is it possible? Tignes has a glacier called Grande Motte covered by perpetual snow, where you can do snowboarding or skiing all year round.

         Every morning we woke up early and went up by funicular to the glacier. We practiced snowboarding and returned to the hotel to have lunch. In the afternoons we went sunbathing, sailing on Lake Tignes, we played golf or swam. Although in the glacier it was snowing, in the village the weather was sunny.

         I enjoyed this holiday because there was sun and snow, summer and winter in the same place, and I could do a lot of different things.

          But the most special thing happened to myself on this holiday it was that nine months later, I gave birth to my first daughter.

        The book’s title is “Voodoo Island” and the author’s name is Michael Duckworth. It’s a Mystery book.

         The story talks about James Conway, a business man who leaves to Haiti Island from America. He wants to build houses, shops and hotels. He bought very cheap land and built a new town. After that, he bought a graveyard to build shops and a hotel.                                    

         Kee was an old man who had his grandfather in the graveyard. He was very angry and told Mr Conway that if he didn’t build in the graveyard, he would give him all the things he wants in the life. Mr. Conway didn’t believe in Voodoo and built in the graveyard. The old man, who always kept a promise, gave him everything he wanted. But, what was it? If you want to know it, you have to read the book.                                     

         I liked the book because I love mystery stories and although it’s a mystery book, it made me laugh at the end.

          I recommend this book because it’s short and easy to read. It doesn’t have difficult vocabulary.
