Pre-Teens Beauty Queens?

Nowadays there are a lot of pre-teen girls that only think of fashion. Many of this girls spend a lot of time putting make-up and choosing the clothes that they want to wear. I think these girls think that if they are not beautiful, people cannot admire them.

However, a lot of people don't think this when they see them. At the end they don't have fun because they cannot do a lot of things like running with their friends or swimming on the swimming pool. They are afraid of messing their hair up or getting their clothes dirty. Some parents think that this is a good thing because these parents want "Prettiest world", but they are turning their children in an adult miniature.  Some girls look in beauty to compensate something that they don't have . In cases like those, these girls become in a prototipe of superficiality.

Second Day

Are you ready for an exciting day?
I know that you don't like waking up early but we have a lot of plans and we will have to get up at 8:00 A.M.
Later we will have breakfast in the hostel and we will leave at 9:15 A.M. We will take the underground to arrive to the Embankment Underground Station where guide will be waiting for us. He will take us to some most important places like...
The Big Ben is one of the most importants clocks in the world. The clock is called like this in honour to the man that ordered to construct it ,Sir Benjamin Hall.

This clock is 153 years old and it survived to the World War II bombs.

Is a one of the most visited Squares in London. Its name is due to the famous battle of Trafalgar and in its centre there is a column in honour to Nelson who defeated the Spanish army in the Napoleonic War.

It is the house of the current queen of England, Elizabeth II, but in the beginning it was built fot the Duke of Buckingham in the 18th century. Everydays the guard change takes place there and it is always full of tourists.

First Day.

As I told you some days ago we are meeting by the school door at 6:30 A.M. on 13th May. From there we are going to travel to Barajas airport by bus. It will take 3 hours to arrive there, so we will arrive there at 9.35 A.M. Don't forget to bring your passport, please!

The flight departs at 11.35 A.M. if there isn't any problems. The flight lasts two hours and a half, but as in England is one hour less we are arriving there at 1.00 P.M. We will have lunch there because the train that will take us to Victoria rail station doesn't depart until 4:20 P.M.  Once there, we will take the underground that will take us to an underground station near the hostel. 

We will have dinner in a French style pub near the hostel that is called Somers Town Coffeehouse. Later we will go for a walk around the area near the hostel.
