In Chile, may be so much chilean people important in our history, since characters of the independence like the Carrera brothers, from the pacific war like Arturo Prat, from the literature like Mistral and Neruda and from the any president, between a lot of people else. But, in my opinion, a really character transcendent was, is and will be Jose Marcelo Salas Melinao.
Marcelo Salas, better known as "Killed" because his features scoring, was born on Temuco on December 24, 1974. He, striker, began playing of professional way in "Universidad de Chile", team of his loves. Since here jump to stardom. He arrived to River Plate at second semester of 1996 for then go to Lazio where was world famous. His last important team was Juventus where he get to won great cups and so much money.
These year were amazing for any chilean, all people love to Marcelo, he represented us and let to know our country. In this sence ZAmorano achieved the same but the diference is that Salas won a lot of tournaments and cups.
The true consecration was with the Chilean team football. Playing the FIFA WORLD CUP on France he reached the highest glory scoring 4 goals. The playoffs for this Championship was witness of his category. He made more than 15 goals and He conformed feat to Zamorano the lethal pair ZA-SA.
When you question or go to any country and the people know that you are chilean, they begin to appoint names of our culture or history, between those is the football player like Salas. If you go to Englan and say JOSE MARCELO SALAS, more known as "MATADOR", the people keep their head down and only have words of praises and admiratons. Unfortunately, they were victims of the siege scorer.
The chilean football player historical scorer in one country lover of football isn´t any people, is a representative man of our country, one example of good people and successful sportman.
Thanks Marcelo for Give us so successful, at least just a few years because a recognized people is that simple man that in few years reach to be a great man.

Well, all you know my taste for the football. For that reason I have a favorite team in all the countries. For the case of England, I like Tottenham FC, a team from northeast London. Since I met this team that I have followed it, watching the matches and the news around it. It´s the most popular team in the city and their people is very enthusiast. It´s seems to my love team here, in Chile, what is??, “The University of Chile”.
So, may seem little interesting for people enthusiast to meet another things or places, but for me, is a real experience to be on the European stadium, above all on the White Harts Line, Tottenham home because I know a lot of Chilean stadium and their precariousness, only 5 or 6 can be within the world quality.
The stadiums on England have places interesting apart of the stadium itself, namely there are museum, parks,etc,etc..

When I was a child all the games were entertaiment for me, well almost all these because there are any that it could be for women. Even I was a restless kid. I tried play new games with my cousins and bothers, make new dinamics, never I was boring.
The favourite play for me was the hide and seek. It mix a lot of interesting things like strategy, intelligence, quickly, liveliness and sharpness. Well, these features I had them and I think that today too. Our last field trip with the teacher Rodrigo Vargas was to Alhue. There, at the night, we played hide and seek between David, Cesar, Jacques, Jacqui, diego and Francisca. we can hide on trees, behind of bus or scenary, under tables and any shadows.
This game consists in that one person should cover his face and expect others to hide and then go out and look them. If discover somebody he or she must scream appointing him. Is the possibility that the latter person can deliver to those previously caught telling: "for me and all my friends".
One important thing is the space used. It must have small dimentions because the game can doing boring. Add, it´s depend of around it, if it´s a forest, a the courtyard of a house or just the street. In my opinion, I preffer the forest, auuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!! jajaja
I´m very good for this game, when somebody say: Do we play something funny??? I always answer: yeeeees, hide and seek!!!!!!. But some times the people didn´t accompany me and I stayed frustrated.
one , two , three for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When any people question me about a important people in the contemporary history, I always remember at John Paul II, the pope 5 years ago. His true name was Karol Józef Wojtyła. He was born in the Polish town of Wadowice, a small city 50 kilometers from Krakow, on May 18, 1920. He was the youngest of three children.
John Paul II has been acclaimed as one of the most influential leaders of the 20th century, He did a lot of things with the purpose of help the different countries, cultures, religions and the people above all. In Chile, when came here he could avoid a impending war with Argentina. For these reasons a so much more this papa was very dear. There are people that didn´t believe in the religion but they said that him had a special halo, his face reflected peace, love, tranquillity and compassion. It stayed demonstrated when He forgave on the prison at the criminal that shot him.
His admirable capacity to learn other language was a important characteristic of him, add when he assumed as papa, he was a young with many forces and longing of do some. All the day in the morning he practised sports, was the first at his category in have a different life style like pope.
When I watched the pope on the TV and especially when Marcelo Salas visited him on the Vatican with his daughters, I wanted to be with him too. As said, his presence was special and that struck me. I thought in goods advice for face life, I had conformed with touch him, hug him and told him thanks, thanks for the peace and his capacity for unify rivalries. Maybe is few, some shallow but is with sincerity.

Well, my dream was be football player. Now, if I could to choose a job, this would be football player like I said previously. Since kid I was in Football school with important U. De Chile ex-players; Leonel Sanchez, Braulio Musso and Sandrino Castec were my teachers. My mom wanted to that I studied at the University, so the football was only a entertainment way. I had many fights with her, I told her that de football was my life but mi mom didn´t understand.
I have qualyties so good for play like speed, header, etc, etc, etc... jajaja, is true of course. I know that the oportunity for play in the chilean honor rate was difficult too, it was my responsability. But I think that i was litlle support.
When I´m boring or the time lets me do other things, I try to watch football on TV because is a relax way for me, really is funny and exciting. The world that around the sports can be bad or complex, it can to choose you doing a good or avaricious person. This is the main problem or desicion in the begin. The way to honor or frustration. You question to Pinilla!!!!!
I know few players, I have spoken with my teachers when I was kid but now, only I can say that Luis Valenzuela, ex-player of Magallanes, Union Calera and Union Española. He even told me his experience in the proffesional football, the greatest and the uglyest moments. I had the opportunity of share with him on field game and I learned so much.
In my life, I have wanted to make a lot of things out of football, but if I had that say a work or job with a paper backing it up, I would choose to be a Geographer, jajaja.

The perfect day must be a weekend, friday, saturday or sunday. For me is the saturday the best day because you are relax if you don´t have to work or nothing important to do.
In my own case, I preffer a saturday where the football is the main element, all the world turn it. The morning begins with the faculty football. All the saturday at nine o´clock we play with others facultys at the Chile´s University tournament. Well, if we win the day paints nice but even it begins fine, apparently, jajajaja.
Then, with the victory among the hands I lunch with the family a exotic and delicious food. At the 5:00 o´clock my friends and me begin to prepare our way out to stadium, we make confetti and paper roll, put us the "U" shirts and get out the blue and red flags. In the stadium jumping, singing and screaming, we would enjoy the triumph against Colo-Colito our most important rivalier both on or out of the stadium, because we have the major supporters.
Well, with these two good news, the day can´t be better but still absence. The night with the friends on Lucho´s apartament is the laugh and conversation center. Each weeken we get together for share our experience of the week like special moments in the university, job or the natural life. This gathering can during until the 3 or 4 am, sometimes until the next day, jajaja.
If this perfect day could be repeated all the weekend, I would be the most happy human being. The university´s works have their time but they aren´t esential in my perfect day tale.

I know Santiago in a 60% percent. The nort side has got the most beautiful places and it assembles the big and important services. However Santiago isn´t nice by that reason, the natural belt around Santiago with hills and the most important mountain range, The Andes make it a city completely different in South America. Santiago has so much contrasts or difference to social and space level. The main example is the situation on “Italian Square”, the east side with green areas, exclusive shops, clean environment and little spaces featured by a special function like “Bellavista”, “Suecia” and “Ñuñoa Square” when there is young life, a lot of pubs, restaurants, cabarets, etc. The west side like concrete jungle, only with attractive featured by its history and social representation. Examples are “El Mercado Central”, “Estación Mapocho”, “Santa Lucia” hill, etc.
My recommendations for tourist is that visit Restaurants because they must taste our national gastronomy; fishes, shellfish, meats and pastries. Then visit the natural or semi natural areas; here were the “San Cristobal” and “Santa Lucia” hills, the “Forestal” park and the beautiful and clean “Mapocho” river. Anyway the historic places like the presidential palace, Maipú votive temple, Brasil and Yungay quarter, National Stadium and all the museums, these show important moment in Chilean history and the culture too. When night falls Santiago explodes, It stirs up. For dance, drink and have a good time I advise visit "Bellavista" neighbourhood because has variety of prices, styles and size. Now, if you are a star, you have to visit the "Pasapoga". Here is the Showbiz, nice TV women, football players, top models and a lot of fomous people like me, jajaja.
Well, Santiago can be boring but if you search, you can finding great things and nice places.
