MY GODSON.....AND TWO MORE SISTERS
Hi Anne and Readers,
Thanks for marking my mistakes in an unusual way, Anne. It makes me think more and find my own errors.
In a previous blog, when I spoke about my family, I forgot to mention that I’ve got a godson. He is like a son to me because his mother died when he was 2 years old and I was with him most of the time. I love him very much.
He is 22 years old now and we see each other from time to time but we’re always in touch. I met him last Easter since it’s a tradition to spend that day together along with my family.
Here is a picture taken on that day.
I also want to tell you that I’ve got a lot of cousins but my two favourites are Claudia and Celia (they are from my father’s side). We are almost the same age and we used to play together when we were children. Now we’re very close and I can say that we are like sisters. What a coincidence! Our names start with “C”.
I don’t want to deceive you but I’m a disaster as a seamstress. You hit the head of the nail! I only sewed my Arabian Dancing dress as a one-off and luckily you can’t see it very closely, otherwise you’ll find a lot of imperfections.
Anne, you can’t believe that I have a weak knee too (the left one). I used to attend Ballet classes with a kneepad but little by little I started to be better. Actually, I have one leg shorter (just a bit :- )than the other. The exercises were very well for me.
I was told not to practise high-impact training (such as running) but I love doing cross-trainer. In fact that’s my favourite. But I had to train my legs before doing that because of my knee problem. And which was the most important; I had to buy a pair of good training shoes!
Changing the subject, someone mentioned the word “porteño”. All the people who was born in the city of Buenos Aires are called “porteño” so I’m a “porteña” (I put an “a” because it’s female).
Now, the expressions you have corrected me (I only found 4 out of 5)
1) My mother wanted me to take classes.
2) Why did I give it up?
3) I did it for some years.
4) The aerobics are well for me.
By the way, could you enclose the recipe of pork steaks in blue cheese sauce. It sounds delicious :-;
Anne, I’d like to be a bookworm but I don’t have much time. However I try to read at least 3 books (specially in English) per year. So far, I read a lot of books, most of them were from American writers. In another blog I’ll share with all of you the titles because now I don’t remember all of them.
For those who can’t wait for the pictures of some places of Argentina, here is a link that shows a very brief video of Buenos Aires.

Now I’ll try to answer to you readers
I think that somebody asked me about Argentinean writers. I only know Sabato, Borges and Cortázar (I haven’t read Rayuela yet) from my teenage time when I was in high school and we had to read them compulsory.
But I prefer Isabel Allende (from Chile) or Gabriel García Marquez (from Colombia) when I’m reading books in Spanish.
Yanko- Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of me practising yoga.
Habooba- Yes, it’s really a shame. You should start belly dance at once :- )
Irina- I’m glad you know Natalia Oreiro. She works in Argentina but did you know she was born in Uruguay? I hate watching TV. The only moment that Oscar and I put it on is when we want to see a good movie.
Mercè – Your comments made me want to be in a peaceful beach. How fantastic might be living near the Mediterranean. I envy you (in a positive way of course)
Pary- Arabian dancing is not difficult at all. For me it was easier than Ballet dancing.
Sorry you don’t understand what I said about working in a study. I think that I’ve made that word up. I work in a studio (an accountants’ office). I’ll show all of you a picture next time.
Vladimir- I agree with you about sports and dancing
Hyoshil- First of all I want to know where is LINCOLN. Thank you for your comments but I’m absolutely sure I’m over forty.
Jammu- Thank you for your comments about my mother. So you could see the emblem (OM) on my sister’s T-shirt. Yes we always start a class with the legs crossed and saying OM….
But in Argentina yoga is practised without relating it to a religion. It’s a way of life and each person adapts it to his/her own religion.
Thank you for the info about the Swami. I’ll write it down for my sister to browse in the internet.
Ajaz- Thanks for your compliments. I was moved when I read that you were from Saudi Arabia. How is to live there?
Masood and Michelle - I promise to attach some pictures about Argentina and to tell more about it. Hope you come to my country some day.
Takehito- Sushi is very expensive here in Argentina too, and it’s so tiny…. You should try to practise yoga. It’s very useful for concentration and a lot of things too.
Ernesto- I don’t have a favourite food. I like everything except rare meat and “mondongo” (a typical Argentinean food)
Antonio- My father’s name was Antonio too.
I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed Argentinean beef!
Ana Paula- Thanks for the information about the music of “El Clon”. I didn’t know the singer’s name. Now I remember him :- )
