Traveling by Ireland
I always dreamed to visit Ireland, since I was a child, and finally I could come
here and live one month I was very excited, but when I arrived here my first week
was so hard, I didn't like the weather and I really missed my city, my friends and
my family. However little by little I was knowing Ireland, I realized people always
talk with you and it didn't matter if we didn't meet each other before, music was
cheerful you couldn't felt sad, the amazing landscapes, and the most important I've
met wonderful people so I started to fall in love of this country and two days before
I come back to Spain I have to say goodbye, I'm sure in the future I'll return here
and visit the incredible places in Ireland, but i don't know if I will see the friends
I've met in the course and this is the hardest part.
This have been my little adventure in this wonderful country.

The importance of Smile in big words. We can't go on with our lives if we stop for very long time bothering about what difficult is to overcome obstacles that life gets us in front of some decisions we take. It's a matter of attitude. A positive attitude much like that famous phrase that says "Look half cup full". Thus, Smile it's like a LIFE STYLE. I invite you to feel the affect in a smile after a positive thought: "All will pass... and then I'll be stronger". We can achieve this point of view through different experience of our life or if you were lucky, through the educations from your family, school. If not, and you still thinking I'm saying a crazy thing... What I can advise is, open your minds and don't stop at the first opinion given to you. Keep looking around you, your new experiences, new people you meet specially in a very absurd occasion. Even it is a very good chance travel around Ireland and enjoy the infinity different ways which you can relax, take break and have reminding all positive affirmations you can about your future. Then, you'll see that you don't have any other option, it will appear in your face a big big SMILE. The future started again and there is nothing to be afraid.
Mani was a beautiful child and nothing impolite
With her skin white
Burnt by the sun
On the forest, she had so much fun
Her eyes was bright.
One day Mani became sick
Her situation was critic
Everybody made a prayer
for the health come back to her
But God made a trick.
The lovely Mani died
And everybody cried
The prayers didn’t have result
That moment was difficult
When below the floor of the hollow she was buried.
Many days after
They had a answer
On place that Mani was
The Indians saws
On the soil a root emerge.
Maniva is the name that the mother gave to the root
And this was very cute
A girl who everybody used to miss
Inmortalized by this
The hungry of the people she could interrupt.

I had so much work
doing a crossword with a Turk
He wanted to smile
when he saw a girl wearing a tile
he was a jerk.
I finally accustomed about living in here
First time, I couldn't understand what I did hear
I tried to improve my English skill alone,
it was not easy to do eveything on my own.
I still need more to be fluent in English but it's okay because I have a year.
Yesterday I saw a tiger
It was eating a men of Niger
I was really shocked
and I lost my sock
after this success I became a writer.
Every day I study at home
next day if the exercise is wrong I fell as a dumb.
I think this Limerick can be the best
that's what I dream when I go to rest
and If I won.. that's gonna be a bomb
In the morning the sun will rise
in the sky there will be a noise
Biros were woken up,
crows are flying,
I'm going in a cruise
There was a young Saudi boy
He loved playing game boy
his mother was too tough
because he doesn't study enough
but he didn't listen and continue playing in game boy
There once was a little boy called Javier,
he was a brave as a musketeer,
to learn english his mother spent a lot of money,
but he liked beer more than honey,
so his mother will make him disappear.
I would like to have an airplane
and fly away from all the pain
see the green fields,
which were battlefields
and dream of never be sad again.
Sometimes, I'm winter, at eight
can be seen a mysterious light
Between the headstones of the cementery.
What could be it? That's a mystery
But it always apear at the same hour at night.
I want to be in Spain,
with a bottle of Campagne,
let's go to the beach,
and not to the football pitch,
It must be the main.
There is a flower,
with a lot of power,
I sleep in a bed
where the pillow is red
and I'll take a shower.
You, little silly boy
always playing with that toy,
always playing when I'm sleeping
can you stop at least while eating?
That's what I would really enjoy
I have a red ball
It is very small
but it jumps and jumps
and a day it broke the lamp
next I screamed without control
I came here to learn English
Instead of this I just speak Spanish
what a pity
I feel guilty
Because I'll be the same amateurish
There once was a team from Brazil
the football they played was a thrill
they met a German team
who shattered their dream
by whipping them seven nil.
I'm organizing a barbecue
because i want to be with you
we're going to meet at three
behind the big tree
and you are going to feel something new
There was an old man from Peru
who dreamed he was eating his shoe
he awoke one dark night
from a terrible fright
to discover his dream had come true!
You stay in Limerick and haven't bike.
If you haven't bike and like
You can't visit city.
If you don't pay bus ticket in this community
you will have to buy bike and can visit unpaid.
Act and React.
Sometimes happens that we have dreams or goals in our life that we want them to become
true but in the roughly process we realize about two well-known elements that, in most of
cases, crash into opposites ideas taking part in this little piece of energy that we called LIFE.
These are “Expectative” and “Reality”. When we pursue our dreams and goals fervently
something positive happens inside, everything seems to be perfect, seeing opportunities
everywhere, feeling powerful or having the initiative to make something bigger than what it
really can. Some people believe that obstacles are just an experiment of negative thoughts
or closer minds that perhaps hides a hidden weakness of body and soul; others just think
that despite knowing obstacles are difficult, they are likely to overcome of them. However,
what happens when we face those obstacles that we firstly ensure would have no effects in
We act and react.
I’d like to explain in details what’s happening in this specific case, and I highlight that I’m
speaking based in my own experience and not talking about this as an only truth.
When I arrived in Ireland I felt full of energy and expectations due to the fact that all my life I
had dreamt coming to Ireland. Since I can remember, not long ago, I had been reading
interesting books about Celtic culture and fantasy, all related with magnificent wars,
unimaginable creatures, Gaelic language, legends and myths about kings who leaded
villages living in a parallel world of this world to whom they called “the manifest world”. So,
with all these stories in mind and moreover the information gathered on internet about the
environmental and Emerald island, my expectations had been increasing more and more.
Everything around me was as different and new as the sense of expanding; that it can be
compared with practicing yoga. In brief words, I was experiencing thankfulness of life in the
green island, Ireland.
But as everybody knows life is life and that is equal to ironies, so then some things came up.
Homesick, doubts, fears, boredom and so on worked together like chasing my dreams and
goals to be absorb in the darkness of my soul, digging more in it that I could notice,
spreading silently as hypertension does, or even more, like a slow poison dosed self-
medicated. Isolation took place in my being, and every challenge was delayed. I’ve never
thought that I would feel depressed and listless in this beautiful country but in fact it was
exactly like that. I couldn’t stay for long periods in my room; I began to get irritated with
normal situations and also with people around me. But the truth was… that I’d begun to
I acted and reacted… or am I reacted and acted?
The answer… is a cycle.
Suddenly I reacted as if someone had removed the bandage from my eyes, thereby I could
realized about my condition as a human being, and more than that how people try so hard
unconsciously to plan and connect everything in their minds to do things that suppose have
to be done; their purposes look like successful so that finally can match a victory for
themselves. We act primarily carrying with us expectations, motivated mainly for the
reasons we found to discover ourselves in a different way, that feels comfortable and
delighted, but after find obstacles in the middle such simples routines, work, diseases,
conflicts including changeable weather, we change our attitude and react twice until we
understand what’s going on inside.
What I’d like to explain is that these things happen now and again, and not long when you
finally react and get over about it, you are already acting again. So in this cycle, the act and
the react repeat over and over again so as to discover ourselves in every substantial and
insubstantial thing in life. The key is to realize that life is not always pink but if we can see
where is the box of acrylic paints, we’re likely to react and say “life is great” instead “not too
bad”, so definitely you can continue to being a chaser of dreams and goals in presence of
your faith becoming in a conqueror of your own life.
Grilled Marinated Beef
Bulgogi is one of Korea's most popular beef dishes that is made from thinly sliced sirloin or another prime cut of beef (rib eye). It is usually marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil, black pepper, garlic, onions, ginger, and sugar for two to four hours to enhance the flavor and its tenderization. Bulgogi is traditionally grilled but broiling or pan-cooking is common as well. Whole cloves of garlic, sliced onions, and chopped green peppers are often grilled or cooked at the same time. It is often served to non-Koreans as a first taste of Korean cuisine.
This dish is usually served with a side of lettuce, spinach, or other leafy vegetable, which is used to wrap a slice of cooked meat, often times along with a dab of ssamjang, kimchi, or other side dishes, and then eaten as a whole.
Korean 101: Bul is the Korean word for fire and gogi is meat, therefore, it translates into fire meat. However, it's not quite spicy in taste but somewhat on the sweet side.
1 lb thinly sliced beef (sirloin or rib eye)
5 tbsp sugar ½ cup soy sauce
2 buds finely chopped garlic (can be crushed but remove buds before serving)
¼ tsp salt 5 tbsp Mirin (sweet sake, optional)
2 tbsp sesame oil 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1 cup split green onions 2 cups thinly sliced carrots (optional)
1. Mix all ingredients except carrots. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 2
hours. 2. Cook over medium high heat until meat is just short of desired completion.
3. Add carrots and cook for an additional 3 minutes. 4. Serve with rice.
