The other day, I found out that if you can fold 42 times the paper on itself, you would have an equal thickness to the distance between the Earth and the Moon.
If you want to prove it, try it and you will see that difficulty you will obtain to fold the piece of paper down the middle more than seven times. Luckily, you will arrive at eight or nein… but no more. Also, you can choose a big paper (A3…), but you will see!
If you use a thin paper, you will be able to fold it until seven times and, with difficulty, until eight but although it’s very thin, you won’t pass it more.
So, the result is a heavy paper and every time would be bigger if we could do it…
In conclusion, 42 folders would produce as a result a thickness of… 351.000 kilometres, almost equal of the distance of the Moon.
Numerically, if we fold the paper 42 times we would have two elevated in 42 layers or, the same, 4.398.046.511.104 layers. If every layer has a thickness of 0,8 tenth of millimetre, we obtain a thickness of 351.843,72 kilometres.
Incredible but true!!!

One of the countries I would like to visit this summer would be Mexico. A country that has marvellous landscapes and a wonderful cultural offer.
First of all I would like to start visiting the ancient ruins from mayas as Chichén Itzá, Uxmal, Tulum or Palenque. On the other hand, I would like to take the opportunity of get relax on the fabulous Caribbean beaches or practise snorkelling in Isla Mujeres.
In my opinion, Mexico is a perfect place where we can spend holidays due to it is a mix of culture, nature and adventure but at the same time you can get relax under the sun with the white sand.

Last days, every day is more frequently, we can find many types of music groups and stiles. Many people could think that one type is better than other, but in any case, there are a lot of types to choose.
Internet is one of the most important factors that influence in this topic. Since the technology has arrived in our homes, the music access is so much better. Nowadays, in a few minutes you can download a song or all the songs of a cd. On the other hand, Internet has also some inconvenient because people who work in the music’s world can’t earn too much money. One of the most important problems that singers have is the piracy.
From here, I want to incite everyone to buy an original cd and not a false cd; always against the piracy!

Right now, I think we are not mapped out to misunderstand us. Between men and women, there are probably lots of differences. However, we have more similarities than we can imagine. Therefore, what is the matter in spending time on friendship? You can enrich yourself with other thoughts and it does not mean a disloyalty to your partner! So, why a relation between a man and a woman must be doubted?
As far as I am concerned, lots of couples have begun their relationship with a friendship, this is a fact. Yet, it is also a fact that we are used to trusting our feelings to someone else, a man or a woman, it does not matter. We choose our friends depending on the affinities we have together, the personality and so on. This selection implies time and effort; so, afterwards, why do we give relevancy on the fact that this person we have found is a man or a woman?
In conclusion, I do not agree with people who are afraid of women and men friendship. You can have a good friend while you have a partner in order not to look for something else, just to have some laughs or some help. Nevertheless, I agree with the point that not everybody looks like the same.

- increase of the international trade.
- increase of the international flow of the capital.
- facilitated from communication to great distance, and development of a global system of telecommunications.
- increase of the cultural influences between countries.
- adoption of western ways of life in any part of the world.
- facilitated to travel and to do tourism
- increase of the migration, legal or illegal.
- development of a financial international system - increase of the economic power of the multinational companies.
- increase of the paper of commercial international organizations.
Since we can observe these facts provoked by the globalization they can contribute good things but also different of bad (Example: illegal immigration), for this not the whole world sees the globalization with good eyes. There are currents of opinion that are in favour of these changes, and they support that the whole long-term humanity favours the world trade, whereas there are others that support that the form that takes the current process of globalization is a source of injustice in the international area, and that he does not promote a sustainable utilization of the natural resources.
First of all we know that in Valencia is celebrated the America’s Cup, this weekend it will be the grand prix of F1 in Montmeló and maybe the next year Valencia would have other prix of F1, an urban race.
The most important sport in our country, football also has got a lot of celebrations, for example next week it will be the final of the UEFA cup and two Spanish teams, Español and Sevilla are going to fight to win this important cup.
It’s important to have a lot of competitions because this is a very good way to win money and to have a lot of tourists that visit the country and maybe if this competitions are well organized in the future we would have other Olympic games.
It’s early to say this but I think that the country has a lot of facilities to have all type of competitions so I think we have to be profitable of this thing, also it has got a lot of important people in the world of sports like Fernando Alonso, some good football players like Carles Puyol, swimmers like David Meca, so we have to try it because if we work hard we can have a good future in the world of sports in our country.
