The head is just on the left of the tower. The clump of vegetation and stones there can be seen as a monster's profile looking to the right, with an eye visible and the mouth, and an rather angry and threatening look. Please, where is YOUR Nessy?

Right?...Thanks for your advise as our teacher.Best wishes,Emat.

Konstantyne was right, I am in the first rank. And good catch with the guy yawning!. hehe, but perhaps it was shouting to someone getting help to replace him.The truth is that I have not a clear idea of the connection of "Saint Anne" with Tudela. I know that it's the patron saint since 1530. This is something I will investigate, but I am afraid that there aren't enough to come up with.I read the history of "Saint mungo" a lovely legend with a surprising end.Nessy "El monstruo del lago Ness" is very famous in Spain. Some time ago there were special TV programmes and magazines showing people who had claim seen it.It's a fascinating history, I liked since I was a child. I think it's a good atraction and a way of spread the word of your country.I can't see the creature in the picture but I agree with cristi thinking that the stairs might be the neck of nessy.Turning to the language, I think that:[BAD] 1. ... a perfect excuse to have a dinner.[OK] 1. ... a perfect excuse to have dinner.[BAD] 3. ... the bull has showed an exceptional performance and being brave[OK] 3. ... the bull has shown an exceptional performance and was brave[BAD] 4. ...villages have ... festivals in honour to his patron saint.[OK] 4. ...villages have ... festivals in honour to its patron saint.[BAD] 5. In Tudela ... Santa Ana is his patron saint. [OK] 5. In Tudela ... Santa Ana is her patron saint.I liked this correction:"We've known each other since we were 17 years old"I made a silly mistake with the New York sentence. "New York possibly was the city we enjoyed [the most]."Thank you very much Nuala, I'm learning and enjoying a lot with this activities.RegardsEmilio Fri 05 Mar 2010 22:58:22 GMT+1 kooroush http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/03/hi-emilio-thanks-for-your.shtml?page=16#comment1 hello our great tearcher Nuluai have been stuyding English for about 7 years.I can speak fluentely, listen perfectely, I am also good in reading but, unfortunately I have some problems in writing. i always wanted to be a blogger biut i was not dare enough to send BBC an Email . could you tell me how i can solve my problem.

I think he might as well be shouting, perhaps because he has spotted a monster.As for your monster, my first impression was that there was no monster at all. Then I saw one everywhere. It could be lying there and taking all the place of the foreground, being greenish as it should, having dorsal spines formed by the bushes and stones in front of the lake. But if it were not green but greyish I spot a tiny shape with the monster's typical long neck in the trees to the left of the tower. The neck could also be the stairs across the picture and the head would be the bush and stone at the end of the stairs. Or you might not see MUCH of the monster, just some of the waves would reveal its presence, either near the water brink next to the tower or further to the horizon and almost completely across the lake...
