To be honest, I don't have a favorite singer or a favorite band. I try to listen all kind of music going by 70's music, brazilian music, local folk music, rock progressive and classic like Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.
  Sometime I prefer listening music according to the activity performed. For example, if I'm reading or writting, I prefer listening instrumental music, like classical music or progressive rock like Mike Oldfield in Tubular Bells album. This kind of music that help to the concentration.
  When I'm doing housework I prefer to listen another kind of music, a little bit noisy, something more energetic that make you keep up. For this cases I listen Led Zeppelin, Korn or U2. In Spanish could be Babasonicos, Bersuit Vergarabat, Los Bunkers or Chico Trujillo. This kind of music make me feel very active.
  When I try to rest, no sleep, only take a break I take my guitar and play some song from Silvio Rodriguez, Victor Jara, Manuel García, etc.
   As you can see, trough the music you can find the right music for an appropriate time. In my case, will depend on the activity that I'm performing or state of mind in which I'm, so when somebody ask me about the favorite kind of music, I try avoid to say "I don't like this kind of music because...bla, bla". I´m open mind regarding music styles and my heard is prepared to listen new styles.



This year my holidays were really relaxed. Only 2 weeks, staying at the parent's house in Loncura, Quintero was enough to get back new energy to work the rest of the year. Get up at 11.00 am, take a breakfast and go to walk along to the beach with my wife and sons is really necesary in order to forget a stressfull year. After lunch, take a nap with my son is a pleasure that I can't do during the year. Long conversations with the family regarding anything, spending a lot of time without think about next task or obligations to do is the real meaning to have a nice vacations. I think this were the best thing of my summer.
During my stay in this place, we visited differents places around Quintero, like Ritoque, Horcon, Maitencillo, Papudo, etc. Every day a new place to visit and go for a swim or take a sunbath.
Before sunset, come back to home, take a shower and prepare a evening stroll with my sons to Quintero to visit craft fairs, mechanical games, etc. They really enjoy this activity. After dark, when my sons are sleeping, we sit on the backyard, light a fire and stay by the fire, talking about the day's activities, drinking or eating something until the fire burn out.
As you read, these simple things make a good holidays for us.
