My sister and me in a photo when kids
My name is Remedios, because it´s a common name in Vélez-Málaga where my grandmother was born. I live in Málaga, a big city in the South of Spain. I live with my mother who is an elderly woman very talkative, moody and bossy (I don´t get on well with her).
My physical appearance is fine. I´m quite short and fat, but I’m on a diet and I’m losing weight little by little. I have short black hair and brown eyes. I wear glasses, especially to read.
I’m going to talk about my personality: I’m an extrovert person, talkative (as my mother) and friendly.
In my free time I prefer to work with my computer: I make some Web pages, Blogs, presentation in PowerPoint for the conferences which I go with my mates, and to write some journal articles about psychology (in English language, of course). I like taking photos of my family and flowers and I like cooking, but my family doesn’t like what I cook. For this reason my mother and I always go to have lunch at my sister’s house.
My favorite photo is one taken on the river thirty years ago. I like this photo because it reminds me of good time. I was on holidays with my friend Charo who took some photos when we were walking around our holiday house. On this photo I was in the river sitting on a stone and carrying a stick. I wore a blue jumper, white skirt and trainers.
Our holiday’s house was by the river. It was an old big house. There was a garden with a lot of scented flowers and some fruit trees.
Although we were in summer the weather there was cold and at night we put on a sweater and it was necessary to put a blanket on the bed. Then we remembered that in Malaga It was very hot or boiling, and we were happy.
When were sleeping we heard the song of the river and the birds… it was very funny.
From time to time we climbed the nearby village (It was two miles from our house). This village was a very typical place of Andalucía with white houses, vegetable patches, pets, and flowers. There were Spanish ham factories, and the ham was delicious.
Some days we went to walk to the mountains and my friend Manolita broke her leg, but it wasn’t serious because she got better soon.
I remember some friends who were there. They were very nice, good people but I have forgotten them.
Now, we can’t see the house because they have built a swamp. The house is under water.
I’m going to talk about my holidays.
Three years ago, in summer, I went to Brussels on holidays. I travelled by plane from Málaga-Airport and I arrived at Brussels on the seventeenth of July to attend a Conference of International Test Commission in Louvain’s University. The Conference name was “5th International Conference on Psychological and Educational Test Adaptation across Languages and Cultures”. It was very interesting. There were a lot of people from different countries: Italy, Brazil, The USA, etc. but everybody spoke English. I presented a poster in English language about “Differences in learning potential assessment of disabled and non disabled primary school children”.
We had a Gala’s dinner in a luxurious hotel. There were a lot of diverse things of dishes: meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, juices, but there weren’t any spirit drinks.
Brussels is the capital city of Belgium and the capital of Europe. It’s an exciting and cosmopolitan city. It’s near France, England, Holland and Switzerland. The weather was wonderful in my holiday.
My friends and I visited the most important cities near Brussels: Bruges, Ghent and Anvers. On Brussels we visited the Town Hall, the Gran’Place, the Law Courts, and the House of European Parliament, Cinquantenaire Park, and the Mannekin Pis … Atomiun.
Of course, we visited the streets of the city-centre. There are a lot restaurants, shops…, and beautiful old buildings.
One night I went to dinner with some friends, and then, we walked around the city, and bought some souvenirs (gifts). Another day we went dancing. We enjoyed it!
Also, another day we went to the Oostende’s beach, by train which is very fast and quite comfortable. When we arrived to the beach it was raining and we came back to Brussels. We stayed in the hotel’s bar speaking, drinking and watching TV.
