CLAIRE’S My favourite store is Claire’s. It is a store for fashion accessories: bags for mobile phones, sunglasses, purses, scarves, gloves, hats, hair accessories, varnishes, portfolios, school supplies (notebooks, pens, notepads, stickers etc) chains, bracelets, rings, shoes, etc. It is a very colourful shop with fantastic news and their products are of good taste and juveniles. They are always fashionable in any situation. It is the store I often visit and where I spend some time because it is difficult to choose.

THE ANIMAL WORLD I really like animals: I have two fishes, one hamster, one d og, one cat and a canary. I worry a lot about them, if they are well and happy. I wish I had many more but still is very difficult so i visit them in parks and zoos. I love to see others like dolphins, sea lions, penguins, giraffes, different types of primates, macaws, owls especially the Barn Owl, squirrels, farm animals etc but the ones I most admire are suricates. These are very beautiful and I love seeing them in alert position (supported on his back legs). They are protectors and live in families. They make houses under the ground and eat fruits and herbs. They have they eyes wide open and at the smallest noise they move, they do not approach the people who visit but do not change their behaviour. They seem happy families. However there are animals that disturb me a
little bit like reptiles: various types of snakes, crocodiles and also I do not appreciate spiders. For me the animal world is special and rich. It is great to see their habitat and habits. We must love and respect and protect the animals.
LIFE OF PI This movie is not my favourite but it is very special. When I saw him I felt many emotions and I was fascinated. PI suffered a lot as a child because of his name, thought he was weird. When he was older he had to leave his village and friends, especially his girlfriend to depart with his family. It was very sad. The ship sank and his parents and brother were killed. Only he, a zebra, a monkey and a tiger survived. The voyage continued for him and the tiger in a small boat. It took weeks, storms, a mysterious island and a constant struggle to survive without being eaten by the tiger or killed by the sea and tiredness. This struggle led him to keep a strong connection with life and with God. They both survived: sometimes friends sometimes enemies but the tiger always maintained its nature, never let PI dominate and left without looking back to PI. Pi became a special man and fighter and never lost hope in life.
MY DAILY ROUTINE I usually get up at seven oâ€™clock and I brush my teeth. Afterwards, I have a shower and after that I get dressed. I have my breakfast at ten past eight. I go to school by car.

THE BEST HOLIDAYS OF MY LIFE The favourite holidays of my life were in Lisbon. I went there during my summer holidays in 2007. I travelled by car and it was a very comfortable journey. I stayed in a hotel. It was funny. I visited the Lisbon Zoo and the Lisbon Oceanarium. I stayed in Lisbon for two days. I did a lot of activities during my holidays. In the morning, I saw the elephants, lions, zebras, snakes, bears, parrots, monkeys and wolves in the Lisbon Zoo and Oceanarim. I saw the dolphins, sharks, sea horses and fishes. In the evening I slept in the bedroom hotel. I had a fantastic summer holiday.
