Most mornings when I wake up, I think I'm dreaming. I suppose this is like the longest and best holiday ever! I'm in the United States at the moment, visiting the Grand Canyon for two weeks.The scenery is beautiful and the weather is, too. When I look outiside I can sometimes see bears walking around. This is the first place on my round-the-world trip. I'm also planning to spend some time in Brazil, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, India and Egypt. WOW! No work for six months, just lots of wonderful places and great activities like bungee jumping, windsurfing, diving from my mum and dad - as well as a new sports car to drive when I get home.
Argentina is one of the most beautiful countries in the world but I often feel very sad here. The country has real problems, and a lot of poor families. Children, maybe only seven or eight years old, sometimes live onthe streets of the big cities and spend all day asking people for money for their families. I'm tryind to do something useful by working as a volunteer with an organisation in Córdoba. I help to produce a magazine every week about street children. The children themselves sell the magazines and earn money for themselves and their families. They can also sleep in a hostel and get help from people like me to prepare them for a better future.
