Dealing with waste plastic



Every year people throw away millions of tones of plastic.
Plastic is made of petrol and this pollutes a lot. Furthermore, this creates huge mountains of waste that will never disappear.
Some years ago, scientists discovered how to reduce this problem by turning old plastic waste to new. It consists in a mechanism which melts every kind of plastic, and then they cool it producing a waxy substance that can be used to make new plastic items.
I’d to conclude by saying that we all could put our grain of sand by reusing plastic bottles and also by doing our shopping using “shopping baskets”, these ones that used to use our ancients.

The neighbour that I would like to have

Nowadays, I'm living in a big building where there are a lot of people, some of them sometimes turn on the radio too loud and I can listen to it like If it was in my flat. 
Before I knew everybody who lived in my building, but now there are some people that I have never spoken to. On the one hand, it is very good, because you have yoour own privacy, but on the other hand it's a problem, because If I need some help I can't ask anything to anybody, because I'm not confident.
I wish I had a good neighbours to rely on him, someone to leave my key to look after my flat and water my plants when I'm on holiday and above all to look after my kiten and feed it.
In conclusion, I prefer the neighbours who I had long time ago. However, I don't protest of my new neighbours.

My valley

"La vall Fosca" is a beatiful place. The literal translation is The Dark Valley.

In la Vall Fosca there are eighteen towns: La pobleta de Vellveí, Envall, la Plana de mont-ros, Molinos, Antist, Estavill, Castell, Astell, Oveix, Aguiró, Paüls, Pobellà, Mont-ros, la Torre de capdella, Aiguabella, Espui, la Central i Capdella. But the true five towns are: la Torre de capdella, Aiguabella, Espui, la Central i Capdella because are the more hight towns and there are less shining and less sun hours. La Vall Fosca is a cold place, there are very much pine, oak-tree and hight-grass. The earthly is mountainous and in a hightest places is rocky. In winter snow a lot times, but in summer there are a best temperatures of the county.

In conclusion La Vall Fosca is the greatest places for the lifes

Saint Antoni's lake

One of my favorite places is Saint Antoni's lake. It's situated between La Pobla and Tremp. This lake is & very popular attraction, and for & good reason. It's the only lake we have to refresh ourselves when it's hot in Summer.

Near the lake there is a "xiringuito", it's a bar-restaurant where people have lunch, dinner and eat an ice-cream. It's a very attractive place.

On the lake there are fishes and canoes to go through the lake. In Summer, all the people of La Pobla go to the lake almost every day.

I highly recommend Saint Antoni's lake to anyone visiting La Pobla in Summer. It's more than a lake, it's an experience.

Are footballers too well paid or not?

Nowadays, footballers are very well paid, some people think that it's too much for what they do. Others think it's is fair what they earn, because they have to save money as they have a very short profesional life and the team can dismiss them when the coach or the directive want.
Apart from the football money, they get more money than this in advertising, sometimes more than they earn in their team.

One of the disadvantages is that they have a poor family life as they are travelling the majority of time. Although they have a strong social life, for example dinners for the club, for the adverts...

Personally, I think that they earn for his efford and that what they receive is OK, because everybody knows how hard is the life of a football player, and besides everybody would like to be a famous footballer, in part for the money that they earn.

Canada

I would never have thought that being a 15-year-old girl I would visit a country on the other side of the ocean like Canada.
Its capital is Ottawa, which we visited some years ago.
Canada is divided in two parts. In one part people speak French and in the other one they speak English. We stayed in the English part (Ottawa).
Canada is a cold country. The north is frozen and the south in winter they are about -20ºC. Thereby they can skate among the Rideau canal!
However, in summer there's a good temperature, as in May they celebrate a great tulip festival, where all the Parliament Buildings are surrounded by flowers!
I'd like to conclude by saying that Canada is a great country where you can visit hundreds of places and you still don't finish seeing them all, so I recommend everybody to visit it!

Just special

It’s known that St. Miquel is a humble church just next to la Pobla de Segur. People say that plenty of years ago la Pobla was situated there.

Every 8th May we go there to have lunch with our relatives or friends... It’s fantastic!

I’ve decided to describe this place due to the fact that it makes me feel relaxed, quiet, tranquil... When I feel sad, I often go there and sit down on a little stone while watching Pobla from the high. I think and I open my mind for myself. It’s by far, my favourite place in Pobla, it’s ten minutes far though.

Apparently, there is only a new little church with a fountain and another church which has to be rebuilt because of the bad conditions it has. Anyway this old church is my favourite in spite of having only two walls and an altar with some withered flowers.

I can’t explain with words the feeling it reminds me of. I think you have to feel it to understand.
