A chat with students from Venezuela

Today I had a YM chat with Diego, David, and Irving - 3 writingmatrix students from Venezuela. We talked a bit about weather, travelling and what we do. It's hot here these days, isn't it? So is there - about 39 degrees C and up. They have 2 seasons there - a dry and a rainy one. Needless to say, both hot.

Back from holidays

I spent a long time away from computer on two beautiful Croatian islands, Hvar and Pag. Hvar is covered in lush greenery while Pag is a stony desert.

It took me a while to get used to life without the Internet. I kept wondering about the online events I was missing, tons of email, things to do... But fooling around with my 3 boys time flew and I pretty much soon stopped thinking about anything; we were swimming, fishing, playing in the sand, watching beautiful sunsets and starry nights, and eating and sleeping a lot. It's been some time since I was last disconnected for such a long time and although it seemed challenging to endure at first, proved a very relaxing experience. Now that I'm back home, I have problems turning off my vacation mode :-).

This was our beach on Hvar.

I hope you are all fully enjoying these summer days. What are your holidays like? Post some pics, tell us where you have been or where you plan to go.
