Hello everybody:
Serie 1, episode 3, Section 4
 
In Colombia  there are an sport called "Sapo" It's a very noisy sport, because it uses gunpowder. the people has to throw a tejo (article of stell) that weighs approximately one pound from about fifteen meters away, to one square with clay that has ballot papers with gunpowder. Wins the ballot who explodes first.
It's a family sport and usually people drink alcohol and eat while they play it. Also listen to music.
 
 

Hope I can improve my english day by day .

Hello, Learn English team:
To do the exercise number 2, episode 3, Series 1, I tell you that I'd like to meet Pope Juan Pablo Segundo. I think he was a man full of wisdom and good advices. I practically grew up being him the as head of the Church.
I would have liked to know, what the Pope thought about the poor people that don't have anything to eat and the riches that many people of the world have, and do not share.I believe he was a man similar to new Pope Francisco. a great person that I'd like to meet.
