The place that is interesting for me is the King Cross Station, because in this place was filming Harry Potter and the Filosopher’s Stone. In this place is know the 9 ¾ Plataform of Harry Potter.
King's Cross Station is a major railway station and metro station, located in central London near Kings Cross districts, Regent's Park, Somers Town and Bloomsbury.
The station is surrounded by some interesting myths, like the legendary Platform 9 ¾ from Harry Potter books, which JK Rowling's character could enter through a wall.
Also rumor has it that Boadicea is buried beneath platform 8, and her ghost haunts the subway passengers.

In this oportunity I’m going to talk about the greatest Chilean of all time for me. She is the woman of the picture funny: Ester Huneeus Salas de Claro, but she’s well-known as Marcela Paz.
Marcela Paz is a woman writen chilean and she is recognize as a great writen of children’s story for his job on Papelucho. There aren’t nobody that unlike the stories of Papelucho and his madness of kid.
The person’s deeds are important because She achieved to capture the children’s attention, which is the public most difficult for writin, because you must understand the kid’s sicology, his language, his adventure and fantasies.
Marcela unfortunately died on June 12, 1985. However, if for some strange and fantastic reason I would known her I would ask her if she wished to escape his wealthy home, because you should know that Marcela Paz, had a lonely childhood and was in her imagination where she took refuge. In this situation she created Papelucho.
She was living in the Gran Palace Building in center of Santiago. In this building today there are gallery of stores and a Cinema. All building was her house!
Her lifelong activity was literature. her first book, "Time, paper and pencil", wrote in 1933. Signed with the pseudonym of Marcela Paz, next year she published I Colorina , work that won her " the Turf Club Santiago awards". He also collaborated in the magazines and Zig-Zag Peneca.
In 1947 she won the Publishers Rapa Nui with her creation most popular, Papelucho, widely known in Chile, especially by children, and other countries thanks to the numerous translations of his work.
I believe that This Chilean is important for our culture.

Today I’m going to talk about my ideal job.
If I could choose any job, I would choose History’s Teacher, because The history is very insteresrting for me. Therefore, this it most easy for teach to others for me and I like this two areas.
I would enjoy this job : First, because before I have worked as Teacher of History, and this experience was fantastic. Second, I like talk so much about History and third I feel that I have vocation for to teach. In fact, Since I was young –twelve years old- I helped a groups of students stay after school for extra classes in something, because they was having difficulties in that subject or are lagging behind for some reason, for recomedation of my teacher. This it, I had fun.

I would like to meet to Rowling or JK Rowling, because I love her Harry Potter’s Saga. In fact, when I had ten years old I read out for a sense of duty of the school always, but thanks to JK, I started reading for my own accord. In addition the life story of this woman writer is very interesting, because she was an unemployed teacher, divorced with a baby that in a train’s travel from Manchester up to London in 1990, she had the idea the story about an orphan boy who had magical powers and went to a school of magic.
Before to speak with Jo, is most probably that I ask her to autograph my favorite book: Harry Potter and the Deathly of Hallows, although this hear loser. Well, if I would meet to Jk, I would like to talk with her about how she had all this ideas for to make an attractive story. Obviously, she had for her studies known the literature, mythology and Celtic, but I I would like to know the process that she had to build an entire world. Also, I would ask her about what she feels when she sold to Warner Brothers her characters and what kind the book going to write now.
I think meeting with Rowling would be interesting, because I’m fans of her creation and I interest so much her capacity for to create a world different that it can to entertain children as adults, because across her story she gets you out of reality for a moment. This isn’t easy.

My first idea, was the same that Estefa: that my favourite( band Red Hot Chili Peppers ) come to Chile and play all my favourites songs. But isn't original
I've lived my perfect day. I like the open places, very green and the sunshine days !. So a big park with big trees or field with a beautiful landscape are perfect for me,because this places has positive influence on me: these places allow me to relax, think and renew energies.
I do this routine once a month: take my bike, and I go to any peaceful park in the morning, because that's when I can I smell the grass, the sun is stronger and more silence. In those moments, I like to lie on the grass, feel the sun, listening to environmental sounds and then enjoy my favorite readings. I remember I read this way almost all the Harry Potter saga.
Often do this activity alone. I'm always surrounded by people, but sometimes I like to get away a little of everything. I do not mind the loneliness; I think there are times when it is needed. But not always been so.
Then I go home I helped prepare a meal, while listening to some James Brown. His songs always give me courage to cook, do not know why. And lunch with my family. In the afternoon, I like going out with someone with my musical tastes and likes doing lass same things as me, always my best friend or any of my friends from high school and go to a pub near our houses to see bands soul, jazz and blues.
This is my perfect day.
I'm going to recommend somewhere of Santiago for "friend whe is foreign".
Well Santiago is the principal city of Chile, because of this, the firts place that a foreihner tourist should visit is a Historic center of this city and its around: Arm’s Place, where the tourist shoukld visit cathedral, mail store, museum Historic and Red House. Across this visit the tourist would know our history. Moreover, the tour shoukld continue in the Moneda Palace and after with travel all over Historic’s neighborhood Yungay, Brasil y Concha y toro. This areas are beatiful place that have pubs, coffes, restaurant, music, cultural areas, old and beatiful houses and parks with so much history as Place Brasil or Yungay (Plaza del Roto Chileno). So its street speak itself and every Sunday there are cultural’s event in this place. The neighborhood’s Lastarria, also, is a good opcion, for spent a moment relax in a nice place.
I recomemmend this places, because are my favouriotes of the Santiago.
Well, if the tourist want to eat, drink ot dance. The best opcion is the Central Market, where they can found a delicius food of sea and a good and tipical atmosphere. Also, for the bohemiam foreign Bellavista and Barrio Brasil, have a excellents locals, for dring something or dancing. Somewheres have free past for foreigners. But my fovourite local us Galpon Victor Jara in front of Place’s Brasil, because avery Friday there are a good bands for dancing or listing.
I hope your comment.
See ya in the FAU.
