I opened my eyes, and tried to sit up. But I couldn’t. My body was completely covered with wires that came from machines on my sides. There was an exception: my legs. My legs were nowhere to be seen.
Dazed and exhausted, I touched in vain the place they were supposed to be. Then I tried to remember, to find memories about how I ended up in the hospital.
A noise to my left made me turn to the window – they were the raindrops hitting it. Staring at it, I recalled another rainy day with the same dark clouds covering the sky.
That morning I finally turned 11, and I had to accept the fact that Hogwarts wasn’t sending me a letter, and that I’m a muggle. Depressed as a kid who had lost his dreams, I walked down the street. Suddenly, a bus stopped in middle of the road. My curiosity forced me to approach it. Closer, I realised that there was some smoke coming out of the bus. I dropped my umbrella, that flew away. But we people don’t fly: I didn’t react in time, and got caught in the blast.
I wondered out loud »How many days have passed since then?». Someone answered – it was my brother. He went into the room as soon as I woke up, trying to help me in any possible way.
I hated this consideration towards me. I would have prefered to joke as usual, and to laugh until it starts to hurt. That woulf have been enough for me. But I was still shocked, and needed some time alone. He noticed, and left.
I have made up my mind. Even without legs, I’m still able to walk to the future. Until storm passes, I must learn to dance in it.
Doing so, one day, it will stop raining.

What is your favourite place? A crowded big city? A peaceful little village? Here we have a few of our 2º ESO pupils’ favourite ones.
«On summer holidays, I stay in my grandpa’s house. It’s an old house built in the 60′, when my parents were born. There is a garden, a small one, and there are hundreds of beautiful flowers. It’s a perfect place for sleeping.
In spite of being on holidays, I get up early. My grandpa has got a strict schedule. I feel a bit half asleep, but the effort is worth. The sunrise you can see from my grandpa’s garden is one of the main reasons why my favourite place is this village.
Even though my grandpa is already 70, he’s still so energetic and every afternoon I spend with him, he takes me to a nearby river, and we catch our dinner. He really’s a good cook. No wonder why my mother cooks so well.»

It’s like a huge peaceful corridor where you can stare the blue shine of the sea, and the beautiful village of Cambrils. Next to this place, you can find the red lighthouse of the village which leads the fishing boats on their return from their daily work. You can also see how the harbor becomes colorful when all the ships are tied. Funny seagulls fly around and try to fish as they are observed by people arrived from many different countries. I think it is the most beautiful place in Cambrils!

It’s one of the most cosmopolitan cities of Spain. It has the most beautiful and greatest park -for me- and the palace of the city is more elegant than Buckingham Palace, in London. Do you know what the city is? Oh yes, you´re right. It’s Madrid.
Madrid is the capital of Spain and it’s the largest municipality of the Community of Madrid with a population of 3.2 million. It’s the third largest cosmopolitan area of the European Union, after London and Berlin. And it’s the third largest metropolitan area of the European Union with 6.5 million after London and Paris.

My favourite place is Cambrils beach, in Tarragona.It is a sandy and beautiful beach, but in summer it’s very busy and crowded.
Near the beach, there is a port, it’s lively and pleasant, you can see the boats and later eat in a restaurant or have an ice cream.

THE BIG PARK
I like the park because it is very natural and it has a lot of things to do,too. If you go to this park, you can find people having a good time, children playing, old people reading and groups of people that do sport or talk together. For example, I go to this place with my friends to skate or run.

One of my favourite places I like to go to, is my village, Cunchillos, a neighbourhood of Tarazona, near the Moncayo. I like it because it is quieter than the city, very few people live in it, about 100 people.
People go to the Teleclub, the only local bar in the neighbourhood, to talk or play cards while having a coffee or a soft drink, or children play outside in the park. There aren´t shops, so they have to go shopping to Tarazona.
Many friends who live in Tarazona come down to their grandparents´ houses in Cunchillos to spend the afternoon or the day, and play football or go cycling. In summer we usually go to the swimming pool at a friend’s house, and at night we go to the cemetery to see the stars.
I think it´s a quiet place to spend a few days on holiday or for the weekend.

Bath has got many interesting places to go to.
The first thing that you see when you’re walking around Bath city is Pulteney’s beautiful bridge. Farther on, there is a university, Crescent Bath University, which is surrounded by a very peaceful, colourful and big park. You can spend hours in the park without getting bored and in the morning, you can see people walking their dogs, doing sport or sitting on a bench reading a book.
But the place I like the most is the shopping centre; there are a lot of shops and it’s outdoors! My favourite shop is ‘Jack of Bath’, they sell a lot of souvenirs about England and Bath itself.
It’s the best city that I’ve ever seen and that is the reason why I’m in love with Bath!

We want to start our showroom with some comic strips from 1º ESO. The graphics were designed by Chuck Whelon and the dialogues were written by the pupils.
