New York, New York

I've been absent from the blog for a long time but I'm back again. I can't think of a better way of returning to blogger activity than posting about The Big Apple: New York City. But why? The reason is that I've spent my Christmas holidays in this wonderful city and it's been an unforgettable experience.

The city is full of contrasts, lights, people, buildings and any kind of thing or activity that you can imagine. I'm sure of one thing, I'll go back. I love NY!

This link contains an elementary reading comprehension activity about New York.

If you click on this link, you will find an intermediate reading comprehension activity about New York.

And finally, I want to include the two songs that have made my stay in New York even more special: New York, New York by Frank Sinatra and Empire State of Mind by Alicia Keys and Jay-Z.

Real Madrid is back!

Last night, Real Madrid won the Spanish Royal Cup against F.C. Barcelona. It was an amazing match with 30 minutes extra-time. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game and gave Real Madrid the 18th Spanish Cup title, a title that breaks the hegemony of Barcelona during the last years.

Now there still remain two more mouth-watering matches between the two rivals in the Champions League on April 27 and May 3. Last weekend we saw the first of the four matches that they are playing in a month. I bet the next two matches are not suitable for the fainthearted.

The anecdote of the final is the fall of the cup from the top of a double-decker bus, which in addition ran over it. The cup slipped from Sergio Ramos' hands when they were approaching the Cibeles fountain, the place where Real Madrid followers gather to celebrate their victories. An identical replica of the cup has been given to Real Madrid so that it can be shown to the fans.

Congratulations Real Madrid!!!
