Without music I am nothing

Hello my friends, in this post i talk about the music, but the music I like.

I started listen music seriously when i was 12 o 13 years old, I remember listen Rock Latino, Pop, Disco and groups such as Intillimany, Sol y Lluvia, swenke y nilo, etc., then a friend invited me to listen to AC / DC and I was impossible not to keep listening, and then this same friend show me the light or rather the Metal Dark Chains, invited to listened the vinyl album named "The Number of the Best" the Iron Maiden, and I fell in love with the power of music.

At present it I listen almost everything in terms of music, Dark Metal, Classic Music, Rock, Pop, etc., but my preferred music is a Metal, and mi favorite group is Iron Maiden.

I love all albums for the Iron maiden, and for me is very difficult select one song, but i select the "Hallowed Be Thy Name", the next is the lyrics of this song.

I'm waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.
'Cause at 5 o'clock they take me to the Gallows Pole,
The sands of time for me are running low...

Running low--ooohhh...
When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
I take a look through the bars at the last sights,
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me.

Can it be that there's some sort of error?
Hard to stop the surmounting terror.
Is this really the end, not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I'm dreaming,
It's not easy to stop from screaming,
But words escape me when I try to speak.
Tears flow but why am I crying?
After all I'm not afraid of dying.
Don't I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
Somebody cries from a cell "God be with you".
If there's a God then why does he let me go?

As I walk my life drifts before me.
Though the end is near I'm not sorry.
Catch my soul, it's willing to fly away.

Mark my words believe my soul lives on.
Don't worry now that I have gone.
I've gone beyond to see the truth.

When you know that your time is close at hand,
Maybe then you'll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah...Hallowed be Thy name

Summer Vacations, What is that?

Vacations is a strange and ancient word that is used for the real people or human being.

But, I remember a long time before, when I visited relatives in the south of Chile, it's a very nice place, beautiful people, and the most extraordinary food. please see the next images and enjoy.

In this travel, I taste many types of food, I can name including :

"Curanto en Hoyo" (which consists of beef, pork, seafood, potatoes, primarily)

"Chapalele" (is a mass based on boiled potatoes and wheat flour)

"Milcao" (that is prepared by mixing raw and cooked potatoes with other ingredients), see the pictures :

Among the many activities carried out, are traveling from coast to mountains, much of southern Chile, to help the cattle drive, and above all enjoy a very typical activity in Chile, "La Trilla a Llegua", the I leave you with images so they can see how I got bored, XD!!.
