When Sara woke up in a hospital it took her a while to know where she was and why she was there. As she tried moving her leg all comes flooding back to her. 
She'd been skiing down the mountain when the fog had come down suddenly. Sara didn't know what was happening. She was confused, she was thinking about her son. They were skiing when the fog appeared and now she didn't know where her little son was. Suddenly, something hit her leg, she screamed and cried, she thought rescuers wouldn't find her in time and she was going to die in the middle of the avalanche. She lost consciousness and she woke up in the hospital.
Lucy opened her eyes and saw the doctor next to her. She asked him 'Where is my son?' 'Where is my little son?’ The doctor didn't hear her and she started to get nervous. She shouted to the doctor but he didn't look at her. She touched him and finally he realizes that Sara was talking to him, but it wasn't the doctor, it was a cleaner which was listening to music with the headphones. The cleaner went to look for the doctor. Sara waited but no one appeared in the room. She got tired of waiting and she decided to leave the room.
The hospital was very big, with white walls and black doors. There was no noise, all was in silence.
She found the doctor in a little room. He was sitting on a table drinking coffee and doing something which seemed to be important. He was very tired; by looking at his eyes you could know it. Sara interrupted him. She said ‘My name is Sara, I had an accident while I was skiing with my son, I lost consciousness and I woke up here. Do you know where my little son is?’ The doctor sighed. He started to talk very slow ‘Sara I know who you are, I was here when you and your son arrived. You only broke your leg but… something injure the head of your son, I operated on him and we did all we could but… he didn’t survive. I’m very sorry’ ‘It’s a joke’ she thought ‘it can’t be possible’. She started to run screaming his name ‘¡Danieeeel, Danieeeeel!’ ‘Where are you?’ Suddenly she stopped, ‘Daniel is dead’. This thought resounded in her head ‘Daniel is dead’.
When she arrived at her house all things remembered him. She couldn’t think about anything. His son was always there. If she had got a husband it would have been easier to get over the death of his son, but she was alone in a huge house. Months pass and she wasn’t better. She got mad. No one thought she would be the same. The old Sara died with Daniel. Finally, one day, her neighbour found her hanging on the roof with a rope on the neck.

The ballet.

The ballet, nowadays, is considered an alternative sport, but many people don't think so.
In my opinion, the ballet is a very hard sport and also a discipline because it helps you to have an appropriate  physical condition and it is very strict, it's very difficult to dance it.
A person who wants to learn how to dance ballet very good, or a person who wants to be a professional ballet danser must spend many years learning it in dance academies or in schools of music.
The people who practice this type of dance must wear some specific clothes (this is one of the most important aspects, because if you don't wear those things you can not make all the movements correctly)
The clothes are: a "maillot", some tights, some ballet slippers and sometimes a "tutú" (but this is something optional).
The girls must always wear her hair in a bun, the hair can never be loose. 
The first years, a ballet dancer can only use some ordinal ballet slippers, but when the bones of the ankles and of the feet are enough strong, then they can use the "pointe shoes".
The ballet is based on a set of movements and positions that are always accompanied of classical music. 
Each dancing step has a proper name, all the names are in french. The following names are some examples of them:

Pliés
Battements tendus.
Battements dégagés.
Battements fondus.
Ronds de jambe.
Petits battements sur le cou-de-pied.
Ronds de jambe 
Grands battements

Cambre
Ramasse
Chasse


Those movements are some of the main movements of ballet, and also, the first movements that are taught to a ballet dancer by a teacher.

I am learning ballet and I think that it is a sport, because a ballet dancer can have the same endurance as a football player or a basketball player, but I also think that it is not only a physical act, it is also a beautiful art in which you can express a lot of feelings with your body.

The Shadow of the Wind.


Summer of 1945. At sunrise. Daniel Sempere is 10 years old, he has got a nightmare because he doesn’t remember his mother face. His father decide to take him to a magic place, The Cemetery of the Forgotten Books, a huge library with lots and lots of books that people don't want. No one knows about it. When they arrive Mr. Sempere, his father, tell him to choose a book. Daniel is surprised because he has never seen this amount of books together. He starts to look for a book and when he is going to give up he see a book that caught his eye. It is The Shadow of the Wind by Julián Carax. He doesn’t know that that decision would change his life.
He reads the book and wants to investigate about the author, Julián Carax. Suprisingly, no one knows Julián, it's like he has never born. He discovers that someone set fire to Julián's books, someone called Laín Coubert who is the devil in The Shadow of the Wind.
With the help of his friend Fermín Romero de Torres, he is going to remove the past and find out things that would have been better not to know. 

This book is called the Shadow of the Wind. It was written by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. It’s a part of a series of books, The Cemetery of the Forgotten Books, which is composed by four books. The Shadow of the Wind was published on 2001. It’s a mix of history, intrigue, love and suspense. It has won so many prizes. It is set at Barcelona, in the years after the Spanish Revolution.

Well, this book has been so strange for me. When I started it I thought it was going to be the best book I’ve never read because I saw the critics and they said that it was fantastic, that Carlos Ruiz Zafón wrote a masterpiece, that it was going to be difficult to create a book like that, etc. But while I was reading the beginning I was bored, the book didn’t make me feel anything. It’s true that once the story advanced I was a little intrigued because it had lots of mysteries. The end surprises me a lot; I was reading it and in my mind I was thinking the possibilities that it could had, so I really enjoyed it.
In general the book is very good; it has got love, intrigue, a little bit of action… I think there are books better than that but it’s a great book and if you want to read something you can try with it, maybe you will like it more than me.

Ken Follett

Ken Follet is one of the best British writers of novels of suspense and historical. He was born in Cardiff, Wales and lived there until his family moved to London when he was ten years old.
In 1967 Follet London joined in the University College where he studied philosophy. His interest for the statements began one evening when it started writing them, his first success was, La isla de las tormentas, that him made be very famous. 
In addition, all novels have had very much success and have been adapted in some occasions to the cinema.
All his works were of espionage and suspense, also his works are reported in countries as Iran and Afghanistan and epochs as the First World War.

Ken Follet has written many statements, some of them are:
-The man of Saint Petersburg
- The wings of the eagle
- The key is in Rebeca
- The props of the Earth
- Double game
- In the mouth of the dragoon
And his last best seller that are A world without end and The fall of the giants.

In my opinion, one of the best works is The props of the earth, in which it transports us to the Middle Ages, to a world of kings, ladies, magicians, gentlemen, castles and walled cities. The love and the death are very present in this work, which treats of the construction of a Gothic cathedral. The history begins with the public hanging of a innocent person and finishes with the humiliation of a king. Really this work, it constitutes an exceptional image of an epoch of violent passions.

Music more or less perfect but turned into love.

I'll tell you the experience of the last concert I visited. I like the music and I like to hear. I went to a mini-concert of a cellist. I had heard about her life and I had become one of her followers. I read about her, and when she plays, she just wants enjoy with music. She doesn´t mind the result, but she think that if you feel the music, you will make very good. "What does not kill you, make you stronger." is the phrase that she use to be relaxed, but she was playing since very young, and she says that the nervous are always in yours, what you have to is control them. That day, 10 on march, she played with her friends. What she played, was a concert to cello and orchestra, but in that moment she played with a quintet. All the musicians who accompanied her were there with the same goal. The objective was do it the best possible way and enjoy with something that they all were passionate about, the music. The soloist began nervously, I could see that her heart felt like it was going out of his body. I was in the audience and I was watching with envious eyes, healthy envy. I also love music and in that moment I knew how she felt. I watched his eyes, expressing feelings and her courage to play in front of all those people. I felt proud. I was proud to see how the music had become be loved by some. And when the end came, it was as if I could listening her mind. That look saidall. She was thinking the first thing you usually think after a concert, have I done well?
Also something that surprised me was that her brother accompanied her on the viola. Goes it in the genes? Comes the love of music of family? I don´t know but certainly, it was amazing. From the audience, I could see a happy girl because of be making what she loves. Her name is María, She´s fifteen. I forgot say it.

A great big biography of a great big man

Pau Gasol started playing in the NBA in 2001, when he was 21. He had played in FC Barcelona before, until he was given the great opportunity to go to America. This chance was given by the Atlanta Hawks, an ordinary team in the league then. But he suddenly changed team because the Atlanta sold him to Memphis Grizzlies, before the season started. He didn't play very much until his team mate, Stromile Swift got injured, and Pau could get in the first team. He scored 27 points the following match, and since then, the coach didn't leave him out the 1st team. That season, he got an average of 18 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 blocks per match and was chosen the best rookie of the year. His first year would also be remembered because of this spectacular dunk against Kevin Garnett, who had challenged him the play before:
(I could not find a video with English commentaries)

That season and the next one weren't very good for the team: their defeats doubled their victories. But everything changed his 3rd season in the NBA, when Memphis Grizzlies got into the Playoffs. They were defeated in the first round, but that made him improve and learn he had to make an effort to get what he wanted.

On his 4th year, Memphis renewed his contract making it valid until 2011. He passed from receiving 4 to 10 million dollars a year. He also reached 5000 points in the NBA that season. The next one, he was chosen to play the All-Stars game.

But his 6th year in Memphis he decided he wanted to be in a top team. Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics and New Jersey Nets wanted him, but he finally went to LA, to play for Los Angeles Lakers.




He started training with his new team mates and after the first match Kobe Bryant declared that Pau Gasol is incredible. The Lakers got in the Playoffs and won the quarter-final and the semi-final, but they lost the final against Boston.

The next year, his 8th in the NBA, was probarbly the most important year in his career in America. He reached a total of 10000 points in the NBA, but the most important event was the victory in the Playoffs final against Orlando Magic. It was also the year when he started playing against his brother Marc, who played for Memphis then (and continues playing nowadays). The next season was another good one. He won another NBA ring against Boston Celtics, the perfect revenge. Here is the moment when he scores his 10000th point, added to a magnificent assist:
(In Spanish again because it's the most complete one)

The next two seasons, LAL kept trying their luck in the Playoffs, but they lost against Dallas Mavericks and Oklahoma Thunder.


Now, D'Antoni is Los Angeles Lakers coach and we have just heard they are classified to play the Playoffs.This is the season in which we can say Pau Gasol has scored 15000 points in the NBA and I hope I am right if I say that Pau Gasol will have his 3rd NBA ring.
