Day 7: Ideal place to move/visit

My wish since I was a 15-year-old, was to travel to a certain city. It’s a place where it rains a lot, the sky’s always gray and everyone speaks with a really awesome accent. Of course, I’m talking about London. And this is my ideal destination whether it is to

 

I’ve always preferred winter instead of summer, so London would suit my “weather taste”. I could improve my english while I’m there and I’d definitely go to every location where Sherlock was filmed. I’d eat fish and chips, drink tea and visit the Sherlock Holmes’ Museum. I’d do all the typical Londoners’ activities and would never get tired of hearing their lovely accents, even if it isn’t RP.

This city is like a fairy tale’s kingdom. Since I’m a Latin american girl, I’ve always dreamed of visiting the promised land, and this said territory is none other than London. Its streets filled with opportunities at every corner, the air thick with some kind of magic. There’s something enigmatic about London, some mystery trapped within the morning mist worthy of a good Sherlock  Holmes’ story waiting to be unraveled. Not even with words may I describe the fantasy that lives in the heart of this city.

visit on several occasions or to move and live the rest of your life in this incredible location.

Day 6: Dreamed Job

Every child goes through that phase called: “what do I wanna be when I grow up?”. Every time someone asked me that question, I changed my answer: Veterinarian, dentist, doctor, I even once said I wanted to be a pop star like Britney Spears (back then I used to listen to her a lot). But now, I’d reply something entirely different. An Interpreter.

For those of you who may not know, an interpreter is someone who assists people in a conversation who don’t speak the same language and translates what the other person is saying at the same time this person is talking. The interpreter can translate at conferences, private meetings, trials and even at glamorous events like The Oscars. To make it clear, an interpreter is not a translator. The translator is the only who writes his translation, whereas the interpreter communicates it to the other person.

If I had to explain why I this is my dream job then I’d say this: Interpreters (and translators) constitute an important part of our culture. Not only they allow us to communicate to foreigners, they link us to different countries, different identities, different customs, different people. They’re like bridges through which we can walk safely and enter a diverse kingdom, dominated by new and unknown things.

Besides, I know that everyone says “I can translate/interpret” just by having knowledge of another language, but it’s not so easy. Interpreters have to pay extra attention to what a person is saying, process what he just said, re-think it in another language and transmit it to the other person. It’s a challenging mental process that has to be executed in at least two minutes. The answer has to come out quickly, otherwise the interpreter will have to ask his client to repeat what he said all over again. And that’s not a sign of a good interpreter.

Interpreters are my role model, simply because they create magic by saying a few words in another language.

Day 5: Favourite foods

As a taurine, I love food. This is one of the most characteristic traits for a Taurus. And let’s face it, who doesn’t love food? it fills your stomach and makes you feel good and happy. So, I’m here to share my favourite foods.

Breaded-beek steak: You’re probably wondering: What the shit is this? Well is this: 13-04-29-milanesagr

And let me tell you, it’s one of the most delicious foods you’ll ever eat if you come to Argentina. It’s a traditional dish here and it’s one of the most easiest to make. You may eat it with mashed potatoes, a simple salad or, the most usual choice, fries. I may eat this dish day and night for an entire year and never get tired of it.

Here’s a recipe if you wanna try cooking it: https://snapguide.com/guides/cook-breaded-beef-steaks/. Leave a comment if you did!

Pizza: I believe this is everyone’s favourite food. How come you may not like it??? It’s bread with cheese. Who doesn’t love bread? WHO doesn’t love cheese?? We have a tradition at my house that every single friday, we order pizza and drink beer. There’s nothing better than a good pizza and a cold beer. But, putting pineapple in a pizza is a deadly sin that should be punished as soon as possible. I swear. It’s horrible.

These are my favourite foods of all time. Since I am a glutton, if I ever mentioned all the foods I like to eat, I would never finish.
