Working on the project!

Being honest, i have to say that i am being lazy. I only have read some articles, but i haven't found yet the articles that will provide me the information that i need. This is the reason of why i hadn't written before.
I realize that i have to focus in this project, and also that i need to go to the library and maybe i should talk with some students who are studying Environmental Policies or something similar. The internet is not enough for the U.S side. Besides, i am thinking that it would be good if i'll talk with some people also.
I've already have my opinion, at least knowing the Chilean reality, so now i need to be involved in the American reality. With this information i'll be able to compare and develop the project.

recording myself!

I think i didn't get the idea or i didn't have all the information about the last homework. Today i realized that for me, the homework was to talk about some place that i would like to visit, but in a friendly and improvising way.
So, if i have to analize my speeking, of course it was very weak, improvising and with a lot of mistakes.
I repited a lot some words, there were mistakes like ''nobody know'' instead of ''nobody knows'', for example. Also, for me there are too many pauses between ideas, and the structure was a little repetitive and sometimes i lost the main point.
However, i think it wasn't so bad if there was an improvisation speech.

Today in class I talked with Natalia and Trang about we talked about Food, and we answered the following questions:

The first question was What is your favorite food to cook and why?

Natalia likes to cook "Potatos to the french way", which has potatos, of course, mayoness, cheese and other ingredients. She cooks it because it is easy to cook and it is delicious.

Trang likes to cook soup with differents kind of vegetables and meats. She cooks soup because it is healthy, easy to cook and delicious.

The second question was What food reminds you of your home? Can you find it here in the U.S?

Natalia said that Herring, Pickles and Vodka make her to remind her country. Some of them there are in the US, but not always are the same like in Russia.

Trank told me that the food that reminds her to her home is Pho. It is a very typical vietnamiss food which has a kind of noodles, vegetables, meat and spice. It can be with or without soup or liquid. She said that there is a vietnamiss restaurant in Monterey which has a very good Pho.

The third question was How do you think food is tied to your culture? Do you think food represent the people and their environment?

Natalia said yes, because some food are typical from each country.

Trang said yes, but not always. Because in some countries the food is different in each region. And also because in asia, there some food very similar between differents countries.

The fourth was How can we become more conscious consumers of food? Do you think it is important to understand where your food is coming from?

Natalia told me that for being conscious is important to know where the food come and how it is made, but not always it is to get the real information about it.

Trang said that the origin and the way that the food are grown and made are very important, because with this background you can decide what you want to eat and what you want to be in the future.

*I don't know if i had to summarize my answer too! :)
