About the blog

I have no heavy training... Barely Elementary School. Preferred the wilderness, it became my university, but I got muddy boots and experience instead of School knowledge so my English was therefore quite inadequate. This blog is a project to improve my skills in English language.

We all have our own universe, welcome to visit mine.

It stopped suddenly to mark territory against a tuft of grass and then continued downstream to the open water. What a perfect restaurant for lunch! It is rare to get such an experience on the Mac Donald ...
