My best holidays
(Sent by Pilar Vazzano, a student from La Plata, Argentina)
These have been the best holidays I
never have ever had before. For the first time, I met got to know the wonderful city of Mar del Plata. In fact, I had already been with my family four years ago before, but it was in low season when the city hides its appealing sides.
But the real reason which it turned out to be my best holidays was because I went with my two best secondary friends.
on in our pockets, we managed to hire a small cozy flat near the beach, on the second fortnight of January, when it is crowded with tourists (almost everyone young people!). Fortunately the weather followed us since the first day we arrived. Days were almost always sunny and warm. That is the reason why we ended up brown as a berry!
The place where we stayed is called "La Perla". It is rather familiar. And sometimes we chose to visit other seaside places such as Punta Mogotes, where rock recitals took place and they gathered pretty young people.
In our stay, we made friends, three students from La Plata. We met them on a windy afternoon, when they were beside our umbrella and asked us to play "hopscotch". My friends and I accepted knowing that we were awfully bad at playing that, but it didn't matter to us. The idea was to begin a friendly relationship. Nowadays, we make plans in our city, La Plata, for going dancing, playing pool, or simply going to their flat to drink 'mate'.
Despite not having much money, we could go dancing and shopping. I came to the conclusion that it isn't necessary to take a load of money with you for having a nice time! The key is in the company, and that is the reason why my holidays turned up to be the best of my life!
