1st Book

Rabbit-Proof Fence

Fourteen-year-old Molly and her cousins Daisy and Gracie were mixed-race Aborigines. In 1931 they were taken away from their families and sent to a campo to be trained as good "white Australians". They were told to forget their mothers, their language, their home.

But Molly would not forget. She and her cousins escaped and walked back to Jigalong, 1600 kilometres away, following the rabbit-proof fence north across Western Australia to their desert home. 

Rabbit-Proof Fence is the true story of that walk, told by Molly's daughter, Doris. It is also a prize-winning film.

La Vuelta '15 in the Alpujarras (stage 7)

 I watched the stage 7 of the cycling tour of Spain. Yesterday, when I was sitting in the sofa and I switched theTV on. I watched the cyclists cycling in Lanjarón.

On the one hand, the landscape and the images that camera men and the helicopter gave us were amazing, we could see all the Alpujarras on TV, and we had wonderful views of the villages they went by.
On the other hand, the race was very exciting. The three cyclists who were ahead fought for the first position. The winner was Lindeman, but Froome fought a lot too.

About the villages, I visit them every year when there is snow and it is cold, very cold. The last time I went with my family we visited a chocolate factory called the "Abuela Lili". There, there were too many chocolate classes. All were good. I recommend everyone to visit these small, but frienly villages.

Even, the broadcaster said that in Orgiva, where I have two cousins, there is a great hippy community, some of them are English, German... and Spanish too. Orgiva is very famous for this. Over there, there is a Buddhist temple. I have visited it and you must go in silence all the time. It is a good place to relax.
