DANCING... AND SPORTS
Hello Anne and Readers!
I’m glad you all liked my first two blogs. I was looking forward to Anne’s blog and I’ve just finished reading it and all the comments to my blog.
Due to the different zone time maybe you all will see my blog tomorrow.
When I was 12 years old my mother made me take Ballet Dancing. I really didn’t enjoy it much but I liked to do some gym. Since I was very lazy to move my body I eventually realized that I had more fun dancing with music rather than going to a regular gym class.
I danced at the Theatre three times and went on practising as a hobby until I was 40 years old.
Afterwards I started yoga with my sister and it helped me a lot. I could control my mind and my body at the same time.
Then one day watching the Brazilian soap opera “The Clon”, I saw people dancing Arabian and something caught my heart and my body and decided to start taking classes. But I didn’t give up yoga.
I really enjoyed It very much and did it some years. Why I gave it up? Well, the teacher began to be more demanding and I only wanted to do it as a hobby. Another reason was that I tried to look for teacher near my house but I couldn’t find anyone suitable.
Anyway, now I go to a Sports Centre and I’m really very happy not only because I feel healthier but I feel freer to go at any time as well. I actually go twice a week and now I don’t feel tired if I walk a lot. The aerobics do me well.
In Argentina the women starve and practise gym every day to be thinner but I don’t need to do that. I’m a foody person and luckily I can eat a lot and never put on more weight than I have.
Argentina women are kind of obsessive about their figure. This is a fact.
Well, I can’t wait and want to show you a picture of me in Arabian dancing suit. Guess what??????? I sewed it all by myself.
Anne, when I talked about our beaches I wanted to say that the sea water was too cold, not the beaches. I prefer Brazilian or Caribbean beaches instead. Once I got to know them I didn’t go to our beaches anymore.
Anne, you confused Chile with Argentina. Chile has good wines and seafood. Argentina has good beef, “mate” and Tango. But since I don’t know Chile perhaps they have good beef too
I’m very keen on travelling (in other blogs I’ll tell the places I’ve been to), but I don’t know if I want to live abroad.
Anne, about my mistakes, thank you for remarking them.
If 1) the change should be made because I’m telling a piece of advice so I have to use should go instead of have to.
2) “as they are” . Maybe it is unnecessary?
1) I’ve lived here all my life
2) I met my husband
3) I put “have spent” because for me the weekend hadn’t finished yet. Is it incorrect?
4) At a speed
5) To have dinner or to dine
6) Here I have a doubt. I put Japanese restaurants; especially “the sushi” are in fashion. I put are because restaurants are plural.
7) Not only did it open my mind. It sounds better.
I understood the explanation between specially and especially. But I don’t know if I’ll put them correctly in the future.
Here are some answers for the readers
Ana Paula, I didn’t hear about Tony.
Hi Yanko, I’m glad you’ve come back. I’ll tell you more about Patagonia (at least the places I visited)
Chalida, you asked me about Iguazu Falls. Try to go in spring (October or November) or in autumn (April or may). I don’t remember if there are some facilities for people in wheelchairs but you can check that information on this link www.iguazu.com.ar/en/
Kirsty, I downloaded them from a local newspaper last year. And I forgot to tell you that the last time that snowed in Buenos Aires was 80 years ago.
Vladimir, in the South you can either ski or ice-skate.
Mercè, it is said that Catalonia is lovely. Argentina is very cheap for the tourists but not for us due to the rate exchange 1 U$S= 3.18 $. That’s the reason why there are so many tourists buying everything and having dinner for only U$S 32 per couple.
Deepu, thank you for being a supporter of our team!
Pary, I didn’t know Halab is the name for Aleppo. Thank you for that important piece of information.My father came to Argentina (with all his big family) when he was 12 but he never spoke about his country to me. However I’m curious about his background. In Argentina we had some electricity shortages too and if this winter is very cold perhaps we’ll have some gas shortage too. We are going through a big problem of energy right now.
Habooba, the rate inflation is about 25% per year.
Ajaz, Saudi Arabia sounds very exotic and mysterious to me. How is to live there?
Adek, Jion Lee and Mahjabeen, thank you for your comments.
Well I’ll close for now.
Bye Anne and Readers. Tomorrow I won’t be able to blog but see you on Wednesday.
Thanks for all your contributions. This blog has now closed and can no longer accept new comments.
