Who doesn’t like holydays? Come on! Be honest! You know you want holidays right know haha. Well, me too, I really need them. Holidays are an important part of my life; they are the time when I can (and must) get strength back to be ready to start a new term or year, so I like to rest, travel and recover my energy.

There are people who like to visit cities in holydays; others prefer to share with the wild nature surrounded by lakes, mountains and pure air to breathe. In regard to me, I like both of them. I think it would be wonderful to be in a place where you can find a beautiful city and a lot of nature, but it’s a place difficult to find, so I think the best way to find that is travelling and looking at for it.

My last holydays were very short and I didn’t have time to go out of this city, so I just had fun here in Santiago, and recovered my energy. Next holydays I would like to travel all over Chile by my own, just my guitar and me.

Abajo el amor

Well, I didn’t know what to write about, but, my friend Fernanda made me remember a podcast we used to listen some time ago, and that I would like to listen to it again. A podcast is a web site when the owner of the site uploads sound archives and radio shows. This podcast is called “Abajo el amor”.

“Abajo el amor” is a podcast where you will find radio shows that contain a conversation between a psychologist and a journalist about letters (and phone calls, sometimes) that people send to them, where they talk about their love problems, and the psychologist tries to psychoanalyze them considering the information in the letters, and using the psychoanalytical theory.

I used to visit the site once in a week, because they upload one radio show a week, but I haven’t visited it for around four months, so I will have to visit it a lot to catch up with it.
I like “Abajo el amor”, because it’s a funny way to learn. 

You always will laugh while you listen it, because the journalist (José Miguel Villouta) and the psychologist (Constanza Michelson) joke all the time while they analyze each letter, and they can help people, giving them good advices in a funny way.

"Por eso vine a tomar café"

I can’t say I’m a book worm; actually, I’m very far away from that, but I really enjoy reading good books. If I remember well, since I was a kid I like to read short stories, now I like to read novels too.

The last book I have read is “La tregua” by Mario Benedetti. I consider it one of the best books I have read, and I usually read it, because I love it, I can spend two or three afternoons reading until I finish it, but the first time I read it, it took me some days or weeks (I don’t remember well) before I could I finish it. “La tregua” is about an Uruguayan man, who has been a widower for twenty years, and now he has found a new love, a girl twenty five years younger than him. I can’t tell you more about how it goes, because I don’t want to spoil the surprise.

I think everybody should read this book, so I absolutely recommend it to you. I also recommend other Mario Benedetti’s books, such as “Gracias por el fuego”, and Mario Benedetti’s poems too.
