It was my first time in Thailand. Thailand is an Asian country whose capital city is Bangkok. We decided to go there because neither of us had been in this country and we thought that it was a great idea to relax in a good atmosphere. Last summer, we rented a holiday home, where there were more families near us, to spend a whole week. Our holiday home had amazing views of the exotic landscape.

As soon as we arrived, my sister and I went to the private Jacuzzi. While my mother and my father were sunbathing, there were a few chefs who were cooking a typical meal. At dinner, we were eating when suddenly people wearing typical costumes appeared and danced for us. It was so exciting! It is said that what happened is a sign of good luck.

One day, we decided to take a tour around the city. We went to the Great Palace of Bangkok, which was so big with lots of monuments. Then we went to a Buddhist temple, where we saw other Spanish tourists. There were a lot of interesting things. The thing that I liked the most was the man who was sitting by the temple without moving. The next day, we went to a little zoo near our villa. There were a few animals and too many people too! My father and my sister are so brave that they took a photo with a long snake. Later, I wanted to take one with an elephant, but when I stood by his side, the elephant’s trunk struck my head. It is thought that I’ll be unlucky in love. Oh my God!

We were all the way back home reminding all our stories. All in all, I rather go on holiday with my family than rest at home bored. These are the holidays that I have liked the most, although I have had other experiences afterwards. Actually, I had such a great time that I hope to repeat this.

Donald Trump

I am going to write about the new US president. Donald John Trump was born on 14th June, 1946 in NY. He is an American businessman, politician and even a reality personality and writer. In fact, he has his own Star of Fame in the mytical Hollywood Walk of the Fame. Since he is the President-elect, he is going to be the 45th president of the history of the USA on 20th January 2017.

What can we say about his personal life? He has been married twice. Nowadays he is married with Melania Trump, who is famous for her career as a model. He has five children and also eight grandchildren.

On the one hand, he is president of Trump Organisation and founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts. He also bought shares in the Miss World Organisation. He has built many office towers, hotels, casinos…

On the other hand, his campaing to the White House has been caracterized by all his polemic declarations like building a wall at the frontier between Mexico and the USA, saying inappropriate things about South American people in his speeches… He is such a wealthy man that he hasn’t needed any support from the Republican Party.

All in all, many Americans hope that he doesn’t carry out his projects during the next four years, but people might have chosen him because they wanted to change some things.

Bob Dylan, the minstrel of the 21st Century

To begin with, I’m going to write about Bob Dylan. He is an American songwriter, singer, artist and writer who was born on 24th May, 1941 in Duluth, USA. He is 75 years old and he has been working in the world of music since 1959. Nowadays, he lives in Malibu, CA. He has been married twice and has six children. He usually plays the guitar, although he plays the keyboard and the harmonica too. His songs have social, political, philosophical and literary contents. The most famous are Blowing in the wind, Hurricane, Like a rolling Stone… He has won lots of prizes. Among them, we can mention the Prince of Asturias Awards in 2007 and the Nobel Prize for Literature this year, in 2016. It was said that he didn’t want it, but this week he called the Swedish Academy an accepted the award.

And now I am going to write about  Hurricane Carter too. Rubin Carter was an American boxer. He was born on 6th May in 1937 and died on 20th April in 2014. He fought from 1961 to 1966, the year that he was arrested by a triple homicide. In 1975, Bob Dylan wrote a song inspired in his story called Hurricane to report this unjustice.

All in all, although I’m not so fond of Bod Dylan music, I think his music is fantastic with  great contents.
