All people who work need holidays in their life. I think is necessary for health because is a special time to feel better and to renovate energies. At this moment, I want winter holydays now!
Whatever I can, I travel to many different places on my holydays. I confess I loved long holydays. The summer is a very good excuse to go travelling with friends and family. I usually went with my family to the beach and we stay in a cabin or houses that my parents rent. We enjoy Chilean’s beaches like Maitencillo and Cachagua; places who have a long beach with a beautiful sea.

I like long journeys. Every holydays I program a trip choosing one country of Latin America to meet. In fact, one of my dreams is to visit all countries of our continent.
I think everyone have the own form to make a trip, in my case, I’m simple because I don’t need to stay in a luxurious hotel, I really prefer to camp in natural places or sleep in hostels.

The last vacation I went with a friend to “Valle del Elqui” and we camped in “Magic River”. We wake up and sleep with the sound of the river. The mountain is a beautiful place to stay and to look up and see the stars. Next holydays, I want to go to the south of Chile with a friend I miss so much. She comes back from Paris and she has a beautiful house in “Cochamó” without electricity near a lake.

Ignacio Martin Baró was an especial expert in social psychologist who studied philosophy, psychologist, literature and theology. He was a Jesuit priest born in Spain.  He was a cultivate person who used their knowledge to make social projects for the people. Although this person was born in Europe, he went to Salvador to fight for the justice of the difficult reality who people were living in this time.
I like him because he was a humble person who believed that society can make many things to change the power of the government owing to circumstances beyond our control.  Martin Baró fought for the human’s rights, equality and social justice in the country of Latin America, El Salvador. He criticized the negative impact of U.S.A in political facts and ideas.

In Salvador he worked as a teacher and academic coordinator at the “Universidad Centroamericana” (UCA) and then, he realized many kinds of jobs; member of different magazines and editorials and professor of many universities. Also, he published books and a long list of cultural and scientific articles.

I have read books since I was a child. When I didn't know how to read I usually played different games during the day and when I went to sleep at night my mom read me short stories of fantasy and I loved it. I started to read the books that my mom gave to me. In fact, she loved reading and always motivated me to do it. I think this time of my chilhood was very important because I took the pleasure of reading. For this reason I consider myself as a book worm.
Now, I enjoy reading many types of books. The books I read depend on what I want to read at the moment. Sometimes, I like reading novels and fiction but other times I want to read short stories (for example when I have to read many texts for the university), journalistic books, biographies, etc. Some of my favorites books are "The perfum", "The catcher in the rye", "Shangay baby", "Thousands splendid suns" and many more. So, I like writers of different parts of the world, such as Patrick Süskind, J.D Salinger, George Orwell, Khaled Hosseini but I appreciate Latin american authors, for example, Eduardo Galeano, Mario Benedetti, Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortázar, Gabriel García Márquez, Osvaldo Soriano.
The last book I read were short stories of fantasy. The book is called "Woman who runs whit wolves" and the writer is Clarissa Pinkola Estés. She is an american poet, post-trauma specialist and Jungian psychoanalyst.This books is very interesting beacuse the author makes an analysis on the stories and characters related to the unconscious, archetypes and symbols of aour existence. I really enjoyed this book.
