At first I wish you all the best in this 2013 New Year. All the best and good luck.
I can see this board. But it was closed for Christmas and New Year.
I have been waiting for you
How did you celebrate New Year's Eve?
Posted by Anne (U15184890) on Saturday, 5th January 2013
It is good to talk to you again!!!!
I would like to wish a Happy New Year to you as well, full of good moments... and talking a lot with me, hahahaha...
Well, I celebrated my New Year's Eve at home, to explain better, at my boyfriend's house. It was good because we put our families together and it was a pleasant night... We had a delicious New Year's Eve dinner with turkey, rice and lentil. The last one is tradition here in these parties... and for dessert a great "pavê" that is a delicious braziliam candy.
By the way, what is tradition in your country during these celebrations?
See you my friend,

I think we have not special food tradition connected with New Year Eve.
I have been at home with my wife, son and his dog.
Usually people in my country in this Eve have fun in the parties which are organized in restaurants, hotels, guest-houses; of course at home with friends and on the street.
On the first of January I was with my son on the short trip by bike
This winter we have warm weather, temperature about 7C.

Sorry for my absence, but last weak I was travelling... I didn't have time to say it to you and I didn't take my notebook with me.
But now, I am come back,
And about your trip? Did you enjoy yourself?
Posted by _Andrew_ (U15177543) on Wednesday, 16th January 2013
I thought you have forgotten about me but I happy again when I can hear you .
Yes I was enjoyed my bike trip. It was wonderful, around me was nature, I mean a forest.
Nowadays winter comes back. There are snow and temperature today -4C. the landscape is beautiful.
How was you trip? Did you enjoy it?

Posted by Anne (U15184890) on Sunday, 20th January 2013
Don't worry!!!! I would never forget of my friends!!!! It is always a pleasure to talk to you, .
Well, my trip was cool. I love to go to the beach. I went to a city named "Cabo Frio", it is near from Rio de Janeiro. Unfortunately, the weather it was not so good. It was raining a it, but it was hot. During the summer, it is normal to rain here...
On the Tuesday, I am going to Rio de Janeiro to spend some days with my aunt. Probably, I won't visit this board for the next days...
And karina?! She disapeared...
See you lovely friend,

I see you have good a good time, a lot of travel
The winter has come back here. Temperature nowadays -8C. And it is normal too. I glad that there are snow. I like such winter.
I have thought that you know about more about Karina. She is seriously ill, she created a new topic about month ago called "Karinka for all my friends" and she explain a little about herself.
I see I will be alone again ;-(.

Hi Andrew and Anne ,
I hope everything is good with you and your families. We are having the true winter here. Sometimes the weather is rather warm for winter but a lot of snow compensate it. Unfortunately I couldn’t read your messages because it was very hard for me and I will be able to be with you not so often like before. Only now I started to recover little by little.
Every day I go to the park to feed squirrels. They are so funny.
Posted by _Andrew_ (U15177543) on Thursday, 24th January 2013
I so happy to hear you again. I have been waiting for you.
I think this is good that you walk every day. I think that squirrels should be asleep this time.
Nowadays we have got snow and frost (-7). There are a wonderful landscape.
I feed birds but creature when see a bigger bird on the ground she runs to catch it.
Best wishes and see you
Posted by karinka (U14788388) on Friday, 25th January 2013
I was so glad to get your message again.
Our temperature is so different from -5C up to -20C. It’s so good time for skating and skiing. I think you changed your bicycle into skis didn’t you?
My parents have a bird feeder behind the widow and it’s so interesting to watch how birds get together for their meal. I wish I could have such bird feeder behind my window due to construction of our house.So I go to the park.
As I can’t read a lot I get all information from my students. One boy told me about a car that is ruled without driver. Have you heard about it?
By the way, what about your English lessons?

Hi Karinka .... I am happy to hear you feel better Cheers Bachir

Hi Karina ,
The winter is still here. Temperature about -7C. But from Monday we are expecting thaw. You are right, it is good time for skating and skiing. Unfortunately last weeks I saw very busy. I have worked with very important project for me. But tomorrow I am going to skiing.
I have heard about a car ruled without driver, but this is the future.
My English does not flow fast if I would want. But I think it is little by little.
See you later
Posted by karinka (U14788388) on Sunday, 27th January 2013
Today is cold as usual -10 C . It's good when we can be busy. On Friday I met my friends and one of them said that we don't have to complain about having a lot of work or it can leave us and we will complain how hard to live without work and money. And believe me it works.haha
I hope you have enjoyed your skiing trip. Have you gone with your son or alone? My son doesn't like cross -country skiing he prefers going snowboarding.But in this winter I'm a bad companion for him.
You know the 19th of January is Baptism of Jesus. It's a big religion holiday for many people in our country. And despite this cold weather a lot of people bathe into cold water. brrr......
Posted by karinka (U14788388) on Sunday, 27th January 2013
Thank you so much for your messages. I'm very glad to hear from you. When it's hard you are near. You are so positive person. I'm so sorry but I have to admit that I don't know about you a lot however when I read your messages the image of kind magician comes to my mind haha
Have a nice time
Posted by _Andrew_ (U15177543) on Sunday, 27th January 2013
I was on skiing with my son. We have enjoyed our trip. There were a lot of people. But landscape was wonderful.
Today temperature below 0C but from tomorrow will be above 0C and will be thaw.
Yes, you are right, we sometimes complain about to much work. I would like only a little normality. But I think nowadays and close future it is not possible. In the Europe crisis, unemployment rising.
But from the other hand for two month we see first stem of spring, I hope. The power come too us. We will be enjoyed nature and observe how nature wake up to new live.
See you tomorrow
Posted by _Andrew_ (U15177543) on Tuesday, 29th January 2013
Are there in your park a lot of skiers?
Nowadays we have got melt, about half of snow disappeared . I do not like such weather, around is slush.
Are there in your city a lot of tourists in winter? or they prefer come to your city in summer.
Posted by karinka (U14788388) on Wednesday, 30th January 2013
I can’t say that I totally share your joy about spring. Maybe because our weather is different and the most part of spring we have very dirty roads, rainy days and rather chilly weather. Now we have a lot of snow everywhere and when it starts melting we have to wear rubber boots.haha So at the end of the winter I wait for summer. However, I like finding the first flowers; they are so wonderful like small suns.
You know, our city is wonderful at any time but many people who want to visit it are afraid of cold weather. However, the main reason why they prefer to come in summer is the opportunity to visit more places than they can do in winter ( I mean our wonderful suburbs with their parks and museums) Now our great event ‘ Scarlet Sails’ has become so popular that many tourist come here to see it.
So if you want to visit my city I’ll show you around with great pleasure.
Posted by _Andrew_ (U15177543) on Wednesday, 30th January 2013
About this rubber boots - maybe they similar to the fisherman one. Long to up waistline.
There are a melt, gloomily and windy. Temperature about +8C. I was a little surprised because of birds' singing. They have singed some happy songs.
On my garden there are little snow
Maybe one day I will visit your city.
Posted by karinka (U14788388) on Sunday, 3rd February 2013
Our weather isn't so cold now. But it's so wonderful because of the snowfall. Honestly, people who often have to go to the center of our city say that there is another picture. Slash and dirty snow people can see there.
On Friday I saw my friends as usual. Our talks usually come to animals. One of my friend is crazy about horses, another one is crazy about dogs.haha ,the third one is so pessimistic person. Sometimes it seems to me she feel bored with us though we try to take different topics ,however, she likes our company and doesn't miss our meetings.haha
Posted by _Andrew_ (U15177543) on Tuesday, 5th February 2013
Your meetings have to be interesting
Last Sunday I was in mountain and I skied there. As always I enjoyed my trip.
Unfortunately the Internet have not worked at home. Now I am writing from the work.
I will speak up later.
Posted by karinka (U14788388) on Saturday, 9th February 2013
I hope your Internet is working perfectly now.
You said you like cross-country skiing and what about mountains? I hope you went down and enjoyed it.
These days it’s snowing in my city.
Today my students told me unbelievable story about a group of young men who decided to climb up to the top of Peter and Paul Cathedral. But the thing that really amazed me they were noticed by our police too late. They even managed to escape. They decided to put the flag with a skull and bones there. I know that in the past it wasn’t possible in our country . Now everything has changed and sometimes it seems to me that people can act in the way they want.
Posted by _Andrew_ (U15177543) on Sunday, 10th February 2013
Internet working good now, but unfortunately I am at work now.
We have funny weather at days temperature 2C at nights -2C.
You are right, a lot of things around us are changing fast that sometimes we do not want to accept them.
About ski, I have never practice downhill skiing. The cross country skiing from one side similar to my riding by bike. I can admire the nature. I can go when I want, I can stop when I want. It is good for my physical form as for my mind. It helps me refresh, relax my mind any soul.
Posted by Anne (U15184890) on Monday, 18th February 2013
How are you?! Well, I am very good... My trip to Rio de Janeiro was perfect. I had time to visit my family and to visit some cool places. Since that week I haven't entered on this board!!!!! I missed you and Karina And I felt very happy when I saw that she had come back...
Well, after Rio de Janeiro I was to Paraty, another incredible city here in Brazil. And last week I went to my hometown to enjoy myself during the Carnival!!!!! Only today I had time to talk to you. Those days were really good to relax...
And about the news?! Working hard my friend?
Posted by _Andrew_ (U15177543) on Monday, 18th February 2013
I am happy again when I hear you .
I am fine, thank you. I missed you too and I was alone here .
You have a lot of fun, I suppose to much .
I have been working still hard. I am finishing my last project and from the next week I am starting a new one. Moreover, I have bought a set of vocabulary recorded in mp3. And I will try widen my vocabulary wider. Because I think that nowadays my main problem is connected with vocabulary. I think it helps me with speaking and understanding speaking English. I too often looking for a word in my mind and I cannot find it.
I would like to go to mountains this weekend but not to dance samba; only for skiing.
