Peruvian Delights

Peru is known for its famous food. There is one that stands out above the others in this large group. It is ceviche:

It's the national dish of Perú. It was created for the fishermen and it is based on fish. They used it as an alternative to eating parts of their catch for many days at sea. The ceviche, often written "cebiche" is prepared with fish with lemon and acid using fire. This food is becoming very popular and it is gaining many fans.

And what better to company it with than...PISCO SOUR:

This Peruvian cocktail is usually drunk as an appetizer before meals.

It is a cocktail prepared with pisco and lemon juice (pisco: grape brandy and sour: family of cocktails with lemon in its creation).

It is included in the cuisines from Perú and Chile.

The Divergent Series

Divergent are a series of books which talk about humanity becoming extinct, because of the many wars which happened in the past. The society decided to divide Chicago into 5 fractions, searching for peace. These fractions include:
Abnegation which is the fraction that values the needs of others above the needs of their own. The members of this fraction take over the public services in the city.
Erudite members are extremely intelligent and according to the rules of the fraction, It is dictated that a fraction member must wear at least one blue piece of clothing.
Dauntless are considered to be the strong soldiers of the fractions. Dauntless are those who are brave. They strive to become courageous and indestructible. The Dauntless are those who guard the city making sure no one gets in or out, and are the best soldiers. The Dauntless symbolic colour is black.
Amity members value peace and harmony and are dressed in red and yellow.
Candor members value honesty above all else and they can be recognized from their black and white clothing.
At the age of 16 the teenagers must choose one of the fractions. If they choose a different fraction to their parents, they are prepared to never see them again. After they choose their fractions, they must make the “initiation” which is a series of actions which state whether you are able to be a part of this fractions or whether you are thrown out of it.
Beatrice’s family is from abnegation but she don’t know if she is so altruist to being a member of abnegation her whole life. Beatrice's decision will change everything.

This is Me and Football

Hello my name is Abulai Balde, and Ii am 16 years old. I like football. I started to play when I was 3 yers old. My favourite team is Benfica de Portugal , and my favourite player is Cristiano Ronaldo. I would like to meet him one day, and play football with him. I like to learn a lot from him. I think in this sport I don’t know if the right word is 'sacrifice' as football is what I like. What I did was put the maximum illusion, maximum effort and all the enthusiasm in the world to be improving day after day. And finally my goal is to be able to get the highest possible level in order to play next highest category in any year.

The first book is explained from the point of view of Abby Abernathy, one of the protagonists; the second is the same story from the point of view of Travis Maddox, other protagonist and the third is an extension of the prologue from the point of view of both.

David Bowie

Today I have bad news about what happened a few days ago. Unfortunately , David Bowie died on January 10, 2016.
David Robert Jones was born on 8 January 1947 in Brixton (London). He was an English singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, painter and actor.
He was a figure in pop music for over five decades, and was considered by critics and other musicians as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970s.
He has died after 18 months of a courageous battle against this cancer. He told very few people about his illness.

For  all these reasons, I have chosen him for my entry as a tribute.

Don't judge a book by its cover

I have been thinking for a long time about what I want to write in this blog. I couldn't stop writing and erasing everything I thought about. But right now, I have just finished watching a video on YouTube, and I know now, that's the topic I want to talk about.

These videos talk about if this particular You Tuber is homosexual; heterosexual...the main purpose is to inform the viewers or fans. However, I think they have other reasons. In my opinion, I don't think that makes sense. You don't need to explain yourself and the way you love other people.
There are people that pay more attention to the sexual orientation, than to the person. I think they are superficial. There's something that made me really sad about watching the videos, and it was reading the comments. There were some people that said that they didn't want to watch the videos any longer.
Don't get me wrong. It is their decision, but that You tuber is still the same person, and their content in the videos isn't going to change just because of the fact they love someone.
So, next time you try to annoy or insult someone because of their sexual orientation, think that they have the same right as you to be with the person they love.
