Hey Tara, Thanks for the great comment on my blog! :) I love what you are doing here in the club. I love your writing challanges as well. I think they really help people and provide learners with something to focus on. :)
Hi Tara, I'm very happy you have liked my description. As you have said, here we have the same view as the birds, by the way , once in a while there is one of them landing on my balcony. I love to see all things from high places , If there were another life , as they say, I would be a bird . I have flyed once by "microlight" and it was the most sensational experience of my life. It was a long trip I have taken with my husband, some friends and people from different parts of the world, like Portugal, Argentina, Romenia, Japan and others. We traveled two thousands kilometers from south to northeast visiting all the capitals of the states along of the coast. In one of this states, the second to last, there was a lovely lake surrounded by sand and beautiful dunes that looked like a desert ,where people could ride on camels. I couldn't let to take the opportunity and went for a ride, of course. But it wasn't enough to me, because the local people offered to tourists to fly by microlight above the lake, the desert and the sea , it was a wonderful view . We could see the lake surrounded by sunbathing people, the coral reefs along the coast and the horizon where the sea mixed-up with the sky. Nobody else wanted to take risk, only me. Then my husband, I think a little ashamed , decided to fly too. We had so much fun; they don't know what they have lost.

...Have your friends ever forgotten to invite you to the party? I think that’s happened to me. A girl from our class is having a birthday party and everyone’s going- except me! I haven’t been invited. Should I say something to her? Should I just ignore it and not invite her to my next party? Do you think I should go to the party anyway? Help!...
