January is my favorite month, so I rented an apartment in Punta del Este from Jan 1st to Jan 31st. I’ve just bought the tickets by Buquebus. The apartment is comfortable, two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom, with a large window facing the sea. I must remember to unplug the refrigerator and stop the newspaper delivery. I´ll ask my sister to water the plants, she has my keys. The worst is packing and unpacking!!! :) Would you like to spend some days with me? If you agree, please let me know how many days you will take on holidays because the first week my boyfriend will stay with me. I look forward to hearing from you! Love Perla 37

It is a fabulous city, with outstanding buildings, particularly the Hermitage Museum, where you can spend a lovely day. Im planning to repeat this cruise in the future with my friends.

In spite of not having enoughmoney they thought about vacations as a way to rest and relax, not luxury. We used to go tothe beach together and had great moments. Our last vacation together took place inBariloche. We went to a lot of day-trips there, we enjoyed hiking, and the last day we went toVictoria Island.I was shocked by the beauty of this small island. While my parents were in the restaurant, Iwalked to the lake. I saw small stones of different colors, shells, beautiful birds flying andsinging. I lay down and fell completely asleep. When I woke up I run to the port. My parentswere standing, waiting for my, with long faces. They were furious. Arrayanes forest was thenext stop and they had missed the ship. My father was really angry since he knew that,perhaps, it would be his last opportunity to visit that wonderful place.Years later I knew the Arrayanes forest, travelling with my friends. I also travelled there withmy mother, but my father did not have the same luck. He passed away and I alwaysremember me laying on the floor, feeling nature, without thinking about my parents who werewaiting for me. Bosque de Arrayanes, Argentina 52

I have travelled mainly as a tourist. I have visited people in some places and have studied in others. I´ve had a lot of interesting experiences. When I was very young, in 1965, I stayed a whole year in Israel studying institutional leadership. I met there people from all over the world. However, my last travel experience was totally different. I went to the Netherlands for three months, to visit my son´s family and take care of his baby daughter. Anyway, at weekends I could visit very nice places in Holland and Belgium. I cannot give you any piece of advice about travelling. I only can tell you: don´t forget your passport, money, cards and luggage and enjoy your experience! 54

I travelled with my husbandand my children, when they were teenagers. We liked going in February. We used to rentapartments facing the sea. We went there seven or eight times, but I particularly rememberone of the vacations there about twenty years ago. It was unforgettable.I had an unforgettable vacation because the weather was rainy or partially cloudy all thetime, and really really cold in the afternoons and nights. Every morning I put on the swimmingsuit trying to be optimistic and went to the beach. However, to my dismay, I ended up puttingon a sweater because It was freezing. We spent the days playing “Buraco” under a greatumbrella at a table just looking at the sea, swimming was impossible.If you are thinking about going in February to Punta Del Este, I’ll give a good piece of adviceto have a good vacation: you should take light dresses and a coat just in case. 56

Herein Argentina I often go to Mar del Plata, but I also love the mountains of Mendoza as well asthe Iguazu falls.As you see, I have been in many places but if I had to choose the one that I like the most,the one I always remember and I will never forget, this place is: New York. 58

FINAL DRAFTStudent: TamaraType of writing: Informal e-mailTeaching point: Tenses / Tips for narratives/ Autobiographies Brief summary of my life I was born in Buenos Aires, more exactly in a Jewish neighbourhood called "Once", in 1946. My mother had a long painful labour for my birth. We lived in a small flat for a couple years . My sister was 8 years old when I was born and she became a kind of second mother for me. My first years were almost perfect, except for a terrible allergy I had in my skin that made me cry a lot and made my mother and sister worry a lot. Unfortunately, something happened when I was 4, something that changed my childhood completely, and influenced the rest of my life. My father had a terrible accident. He fell down from the ninth floor into the hole of an elevator. He lost his right leg and saved his life by miracle. I got a psychological trauma and I have been suffering from the effects since then. My mother and sister have been damaged too. Other three events were crucial in my life. First, when we moved to a large apartment in the same built where almost all my relatives and friends lived too. There, I learned how to live in a group, by doing interesting things, that made me grow up a lot. After many years, my wedding and the birth of my children were important and emotional moments full of happiness. Unluckily, a third event made me deeply sad. My husband left our home and I´ve had to bring up my children alone. Finally, I think my life has been balanced so far with rich and happy experiences. In spite of the difficulties, I managed to study, work and travel a lot. I´ve got two wonderful children who made me a grandmother. I´ve got a grandson and a granddaughter, and now I´m expecting another grandson. Thanks to my efforts, I have a great family now, plenty of love. In conclusion: life is worth and beautiful!!!

It was a street of only one block long and it was closedby other two streets in their extremes. I still remember their names and how many peoplelived in each house. I spent my childhood there.We learnt to play a lot of games. First with our dolls, then we used to play hide and seek, playtag (la mancha). We also liked pretending we were statues, we loved running, singing and, toyour surprise, we also played soccer, basketball and other ball games in the balconies orusing the front doors as goals.We used to have many “visitors” such as the milkman, another person who sold fruit in asmall cart dragged by an old horse, the man who sold ice, etc. It was our world.Without noticing, we started to grow up. We went to the movies, we went for longer walksand met other people who lived in other streets, other neighborhoods. We were “losing” ourstreet. Other interests occupied our minds and Pasaje Nicolás Granada which was still ourstreet, happened to be only our address.I always remember my house, the big yard and its roof of purple glycines hanging over me. Ialso can see me dancing there, I felt the music in my head and my body moved itself. Yearslater, when I finished my primary school and received a pair of roller-skates as a gift, I tried tolearn to skate in that yard. And in the same yard, we used to gather with my friends to dancethe new hits of the moment, spending wonderful time, meeting new friends, new experiences,in two words: “growing up”.During my secondary school I was very busy studying, meeting new friends, boyfriends anddoing sports. My relationship with my club, SHA, was very important to me. Not onlybecause it was the place where I discovered my love for sports, but also I learnt a lot aboutJudaism. I started studying about it and learning Hebrew.Among my friends I met the special one. I still wonder why he was so special, but he becamemy husband, the father of my four children. We have had a beautiful life together and nowthat we are not as young as we used to be we are trying to live this new stage. 62
