The Olympic Gods in Ancient Greece

In the Antic Greece, the Olympic gods were the most important gods in the Mount Olympus. I think that their stories and powers are very interesting, so I am going to explain to you some characteristics about each god. As there are a lot of gods and goddess, I will explain a little bit about six of them.

Hera: Queen of the gods and goddess of the marriage and the family. She is  Chrono and Rea’s daughter. She is Zeus’s sister and is married to him.

Zeus: He was the “king” of the Mount Olympus. He is the king of the gods. He is the god of the sky and the thunder. He is Chrono and Rea’s son. His wife is Hera, but he had a lot of lovers.

Athena: She is the goddess of the wisdom, the crafts, the defence and the strategic war. She’s Zeus and Metis’ daughter .

Poseidon: He’s a very famous god. He’s the king of the earthquakes, the seas and the horses. He’s a half son of Chrono and Rea. He’s married with Amphitrite.

Aphrodite: Goddess of the love, beauty and desire. She’s daughter of Zeus and Dione, born of the foam of the sea. She’s married with Hephaestus, but she had a lot of lovers, in special, Ares.

The Bicycle

I chose this means of personal transport and sport, because I can enjoy it and it’s a good way to go around the cities, countryside, mountains and beaches.
Another thing I like about, it is that I can do various sports or activities such as: running, climbing low mountains, participating in jumping competition...

To take part in these activities, you can find different types of bicycles.
Mountain bikes for walks and runs. It is a bicycle designed for off-road cycling. Mountain bikes share similarities with other bikes, but incorporate features designed to enhance durability and performance in rough terrain. These typically include suspension, more durable heavy duty wheels and more powerful brakes.

A track bicycle or track bike is a bicycle optimized for racing at a velodrome or outdoor track. Tires are narrow and inflated to high pressure to reduce rolling resistance.

BMX bikes are specially designed to practice BMX (Bicycle Moto Cross), mode of cycling derived from motocross in which tricks and stunts are performed. BMX bikes are small in size for greater maneuverability, they have wide handlebars for greater bike control, they provide metal supports for tricks and they usually carry the saddle in its lowest position so it does not interfere with jumping.

Harry Potter

The last English Day in our school was about the Harry Potter’s Saga and I want to talk about the plot of the films, but, only the beginning because I don’t want to be a spoiler. I’m not going to talk only about it, I want to go deep to the four different houses of Hogwarts, the School of Magic.
In the first film we saw a little boy who was living with his uncles in a miserable way. That boy was named Harry Potter, when he started living with his uncles he was growing thinking that his parents died in a human and typical way, but that’s not the truth. Some years went though and one marvellous day, when Harry was at home, one mysterious letter appeared in the post-box. A card letter to Harry, it was the first letter that he had received in his entire life. It was a letter from Hogwarts, one of the most prestigious Schools of Magic. He had problems at home because his uncles didn’t want to tell Harry he was a magician. Some things happened in the film, things that you won’t know if you don’t see the films. (Please, see them.)
When a new witch or magician enters to Hogwarts they have to take a magic and special hat and put it on his/her head, this magic hat knows how to read the personality of the person who has it. The hat has to think about the good and bad things of the new student because he had to assign him/her to one of the four houses.  Hogwarts offers four houses for different types of students with the names of the people who founded them: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw and Slytherin.
First we have Gryffindor, it was founded by Godric Gryffindor, a brave and honorable magician. The representative colours are gold and red, and they have a lion as an animal representation.
Then we have Hufflepuff, which is for kind and true loyal magicians. It was founded by Helga Hufflepuff and their colours are black and yellow, the animal is a badger.
Ravenclaw has the representation of an eagle and it was founded by Rowena Ravenclaw. It is for intelligent and intellectual magicians. Their colours are blue and bronze.

And last, Slytherin, the green snakes that have a very bad reputation. It was founded by Salazar Slytherin and the representative colours are emerald and silver. Obviously they have a snake as an animal representation of them.

How to make an aquarium

Hi bloggers! Do you want to have an aquarium at home?
The first step is to cut three equal rectangular glass sides. 
Then cut two squares of glass with a similar size to the one of the rectangle. 
The next step is to paste all the crystals with silicone. 
When everything is closed, we decorate it with plastic seaweed and fill it with water. 
The last step would be to put fish inside and we would have the aquarium done.
