A souvenir for life
It was my 15th birthday and my Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother and I, went to Capellini, an Italian restaurant. The food was delicious I must say. It is located in Mexico and has big mirrors and great paintings hanging on the walls that make it a better place to eat, with low light, excellent service and has original Italian dishes that taste great.
I was happy because I was with my family; we were talking about how delicious the food was when suddenly I asked the question about what was going to be my birthday gift for 15 years of life. My parents were surprised, I think, because they told me just to talk about that later. What I didn’t know was that everything was already planned.
When we were finished having dinner,... View More »

Gigantic buildings, nice cars, fine houses and cool lights were the principal distinctiveness of the city. I was so amazed with the cars too because the wheel is in the right side of the car instead of the left, so it was a little confused when going by taxi to some places in the city.
After a long day of walking and getting to know with the city, we finally arrived to our beds and take a big nap. The next day we woke up early around 7:00 am. We had breakfast and we continued with our schedule. After walking without direction, we finally took a tour bus that takes you around the city showing you the important spots. About three hours later of taking pictures and getting to know with London, the bus stops and a police officer came up (the bus has two floors) , and he said: “everybody get down”. We were really scared because we were unaware of what was going on. Later we arrive to McDonald’s, and while I was waiting for my Big Mac with cheese, another police officer came in to the restaurant, and told everybody to get out of the place because it was an aware of a bomb near the place.
Later, we were told that some bombs had hit London’s public transportations. There were 3 bombs in London underground trains. And the fourth bomb exploded on a bus similar like ours. There were 52 dead and all the city was in shock.
We were walking around the city, lost because there was no transportation we could have taken. Finally, after walking for a long time we arrived to our hotel and waited for the next day.
After that horrible attack, we continued with our trip. Our next stop ...

    As the familiar saying and widely used statement ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,’ inspired by Plato’s The Symposium (c. 385–380 BCE) and translated by Richard L. Hunter (2004, p 84) has been accepted that the concept of beauty is such a relative one that it’s defined terms change with whoever is actively doing the perceiving. What holds beauty to one, may not to another. So if a concept such as beauty can be that subjective, can the same be said art, a highly interpretive and conceptual medium. After being unable to define art, it could be conceded that art can b

    “Life can be complicated enough for members of the transgender community — the last thing they need is to have to choose between two bathroom doors: male or female.” Ladyboys is one example of transgender people, and controversy over their gender identification never ceases. Totman describes them as “glamorous and attractive men, who are now women”, with which I couldn’t agree more. Though they are neither female nor male in conventional concept, ladyboys can be categorized as female in China, because of their feminine appearances, effeminate mannerism, and stereotypically female-oriented occu

It is supposed to be a time of enjoyment, playfulness and innocence, but most of all, it's a time of exploration, to discover how and where our footsteps on the trail of growth will lead us.

    10.1 INTRODUCTION The previous essays should have made it clear that everything we do affects wildlife. We are the dominant creatures on this planet and we can choose to wipe out most of the species just by continuing on our present course of accelerating population growth and accelerating resource use. To save wildlife requires positive action; it requires changes in life style and changes in our general way of thinking (or not thinking). We must heed the maxim "Think Globally, Act Locally" and realize we are bound with all other forms of life in one gigantic ecosystem. The following are a

We returned summer after summer--always on August 1st for one month. I have since become a salt-water man, but sometimes
