Here you are the lyrics:

THIS IS THE LIFE

by Amy Macdonald

 

Oh the wind whistles down
The cold dark street tonight
And the people they were dancing to the music vibe
And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair
While the shy tormented youth sit way over there
And the songs they get louder
Each one better than before

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

So your heading down the road in your taxi for four
And you’re waiting outside Jimmy’s front door
But nobody’s in and nobody’s home ’til four
So you’re sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
And where you’re gonna go and where you’re gonna sleep tonight

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you’re singing the songs
Thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?

Lions in the city!


Can you imagine that there is a bus stop near the animals of this picture? Do you know that the live in a city of nearly three and a half millions of people, the second most populous city in Europe? The city has been successively the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia (1701-1918), theGerman Empire (1871-1918), the Weimar Republic (1919-1933) and the Third Reich (1933-1945), but it is the capital of its country only since 1990. The picture has been taken in its zoo,  It is considered to be the most visited zoo in Europe and one of the most popular worldwide. Do you know which European city we are talking about?

Wanna talk not so formal?

Probably you have the feeling that your English is sometimes so formal that it shows you have learned it at school or in private lessons, but when you are abroad you notice that the language spoken in the street has nothing to do with that “academic” English. Do you want to learn some informal words? listen to this song, I have highlighted some words in bold just for you to notice them. Do you know what they mean?

Bust Your Windows

Jazmine O’Sullivan

I bust the windows out your car
And though it didn’t mend my broken heart
I’ll probably always have these ugly scars 
but right now I don’t care about that part.
I bust the windows out your car 
After I saw you laying next to her
I didn’t wanna but I took my turn 
I’m glad I did it cuz you had to learn

I must admit it helped a little bit
To think of how you’d feel when you saw it
I didn’t know that I had that much strength
But I’m glad you see what happens when
You see you cant just play with people’s feelings
Tell them you love them and don’t mean it
you’ll probably say that it was juvenile
But I think that I deserve to smile ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

I bust the windows out ya car 
You know I did it cuz I left my mark
Wrote my initials with the crowbar
And then I drove off into the dark

I bust the windows out ya car ha,
you should feel lucky that was all I did
After 5 whole years of this bullshit 
Gave you all of me and you played with it

I must admit it helped a little bit
To think of how you’d feel when you saw it 
I didn’t know that I had that much strength
But I’m glad you see what happens when 
You see you can’t just play with peoples feelings
Tell them you love them but don’t mean it
You probably say that it was juvenile
But I think that I deserve to smile
Bust the windows out yo car
But it don’t come back to my broken heart
You could neva feel I how I felt that day
Until it happens baby you don’t know pain
Ooh Yeah I did it (yeah I did it)
You should know it (you should kno it)
I ain’t sorry (I ain’t sorry)
You deserved it (you deserved it)
After what you did to me (after what you did)
You deserve it (you deserve it)
I ain’t sorry no no ohhh(I ain’t sorry)
You broke my heart so I broke you car
You caused me pain (you caused me pain)
(So I did the same)
Even though what you did to me was much worse
I had to do something to make you hurt
Oh but why am I still crying
Why am I the one who’s still crying
Oh oh really hurt me baby 
really, really hurt me baby

Hey hey hey hey hey 
Now watch me you
Now watch me 
Oooh I bust the windows out your car.

Land’s End

It’s well known that the way of Santiago comes from everywhere and ends into the Cathedral where the  apostle’s tomb is…

Well, this sentence has two false statements: one is that there are no mortal remains of the apostle in that beautiful cathedral, the other one is that the end of the way of Santiago ends in Compostela, this picture is located in the real end of the way of Santiago. The sculpture represents the most important tool to make the way…

Do you know where it is located?

Another place from the wanderer

Here you are another picture, this time is a far place from here: it’s a church build by Petr, the great in somewhere in Russia, the church is called the Church of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, better known as the Church of Our Saviour on Spilled Blood, a religious monument erected on the banks of the Neva in the place where Emperor Alexander II was assassinated on 1st March 1881.

Do you really know where it is?

Where is this beautiful building?

This building is known as “La Terraza”, it’s an “Art Deco” building made of wood, on the ground floor there is a restaurant, and on the first floor there is a wonderful bar which manages jazz music and concerts, it is near La Coruña, and for some time it has been moved to that city, but now it’s located in the original town. Although I am from Vigo (and it’s well known the rivalry between Vigo and La Coruña) I think it’s the most beautiful bar in the world.

Do you know where it is?
