To communicate... To be able to understand...

Living abroad... living outside your hometown should open your eyes to many different things...
One thing I'd very much like to indicate here is that America is composed by 3 continents : North America, Centre America & Caribbean, South America. (Find a link to wikipedia for more geographic information http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/América). Caribbean and South America are not the same nor have the same culture. Random countries might have similar activities or people, but they are so not identical.
This statement I believe is very important to people whose hometown is not America.
Languages, Religions, Goverments, General Cultures.. are very much different from one country to another, and so among continents...Depending on the education one had had, one will understand world and its enviroment.
When a latin american person decides to leave all behind (hometown, family, friends, routine..) and try something new.. its a complicated adventure...
Finding a decent appartment, a decent…

Money? Can one buy freedom?

Though time has passed by, we are not quite sure if all that is written on that called “Bible” is true. But we can be certainly confident on us living this moment. Having our eyes opened and able to discover all that has been left of those mysterious moments and the ones that are alive or yet to come.
Myself, I am not a regular “Bible” reader nor like magazines. Let’s say I was not quite a reader before moving to Spain, but books that were mandatory at school (Uncle’s Tom Cabin, Platero & I, among many others), definitely soft.
A few months ago, I was given a book called “Rich Woman” (A Financial Guide for Woman) by Kim Kiyosaki.
My first thought? Are you going out of your mind or what?! So not reading that!
My second thought? This is a gift from my dad, the least I could do is to force myself to read it!
Today? Done with it and very muc…
