Chapter 1: Hello!!!
My name is Federico, I am 25, I am from Peru, a country in South America. I live in Lima, which is the capital of Peru but I was born in Talavera, a little town in the south of Peru; where I have lived for eigthteen years.
I am living on Lima the most of my time nonetheless I always travell a lot for work.I am a Mine Engeenier, I have worked in a gold mine for two years and now I am working in another gold project.
I spend the mos of my time travelling and I like reading a lot, specially detective and fiction books, like G. K. Chesterton, Borges, Cortazar and Riveyro`s books. Also I like listening to music, and watching films. In the mornings I always ride my cycle, about 45 minutes, then I prepar my breakfast, some yogurt, toasts and jam and sometimes a healthy soup.
I live near the city center, in a little flat, I live alone, after have a breakfast, I have to go to work so I have to take a bus, I can not stand traffic in Lima, is very awful, I always get stuck for one hour at least. I used to go by bike, but since I have had an accident, I do not do it.
The public transport is very uncomfortable, specially in the mornings, there are a lot of little buses called "combis". These buses are very little, they have 20 siits as maximum but they always carry 30 o 35 people like a can of sardines.
I am in Ayacucho now, one of the oldests and most importants cities of Peru.
I am going to go to a little mine called Castrovirreyna, and I have to take the bus from here tomorrow early in the mornig, I will stay 4900 meters above the sea. Trip will take 4 hours, and I am going to stay two days. then I will come back to Lima.
Well, tomorrow, I will have much more time, so I will write more about me and my country`s life and as you said, December is a important month all over the world, here in Peru there will be particularly ways to celebrate Christmas and New Year so we will have a lot of things to tell us about that.
I am Looking forward to reading and hearing about you.
with best wishes.
