Trips, trips, more trips
Perhaps you are thinking which I took days off for blogging, aren`t you?. Well let me explain you and to our readers. These days are the busiest days of the year in my office, there are many things to do, all our costumers want their annual report, so we are very bussy.
The last Tuesday, at nigth, my boss called me when I was enjoying my day off and he asked me to travel again!!!!, Well I was not very excited, you know, I had arrived, but I had to accept, because is my work, could I do anything else?.
I had to travel to Huaraz, another northern city in Peru, where is the second biggest gold mine of Peru, called Pierina. I went with three engeeniers more, we had to recolect information for our final report. So I spend two days in Huaraz.
Huaraz is a small city in the middle of the highest and most beautiful mountains of Peru. In this city is placed the third most highest mountain all over the world, called Huascaran, the top is 6.746 meters above sea level. but the city is placed only 3800 meters above sea level. The weather is cloudy and rainy now, so is almost impossible to see the mountain, but when the day is sunny, you can see a big mountain covered with snow.
Of course I couldn`t go for a walk or treking by those beautiful places, because I was working. But I always try to enjoy all my trips. As you can see, The Huascaran is a beautiful mountain, but it isn`t the only one in Huaraz, there are many snow-capped mountains and Huaraz is well-konw by mountain climbers all over the world. but, as I said, I only went to Huaraz for work, I canīt belived.
I arrived to Lima, yesterday at 10:00 pm. the journeys is easy and it isn`t long, it takes about five hours, as maximum and the road is asphalted so there are not problems with landslides.
I am pleased for your comments about my stories, but I have never written stories, I think I am better reader than writer. And you make me laugh when you said which I will forget you when I will be a famous and rich writer, you are very funny Stephen. but this blog is helping me in improve my writer skills.
Well, On Christmas time I am going to go to my aunt`s house, we will eat turkey of course, whit pannetone and a cup of hot chocolate. I will miss to my parents, my brother and sister of course, but I am sure which they will be happy at home. I can`t go to Talavera because the trip es very long, it takes about 20 hours by bus, and I only have four days off for Christmas. So is impossible for me travel to being with them, but I will have another chance to be with them soon. I spend Christmas with my friends too, We are going to go to the beach, I am learning surfing, so I will smming the whole day.
I bought gifts one week ago. I bought a book called Kant and the Duck-billed platypus for my father , he likes read philosophical books, so I think he will enjoy with this book for a long time, I tried to read it, but it is very harded to understand it. For my Mam, I bougth a collection of Cuban Music, he likes a lot it and for my brother I get a Scout book, because he is Scout and he likes Scout`s stuffs and finally I give a big Chocolate`s Box to my sister, because she loves eating chocolates, chocolates are her weaknees. I will wait for her presents...
As I can`t give personally my gifts, I sended with my sister which is travelling today to Talavera, she will be there for two weeks, I hope that she wait until Christmas eve to eat her chocolates.
I was reading the news and I found which there are problems with the weather in Europe, and I read weather is frezzing. I think the global weather is changing fastly, here in Peru, now itīs boiling, but is unusual because the hotest month is February.
Here in Peru, there many home medicine to flu or cold, the most popular is a glass of lemmon juice with honey and of course stay in bed. Another way to recover your health is boiling a big pot with Eucalipthus leaves, and breathing the steam.
Well Stephen, I hope you recovered soon, be careful with the cold and snow.
With best wishes
