Let’s practice our English?  🙂

 

What about childhood memories? Do you remember what it was like to be a child?

I’ve got some very special memories to share! Check out some of my pictures:

 Here is my very first bike! Look how happy I was!

😛

 

 

 

 

 

 

Digitalizar0002

 

 

 I loved going to amusement parks ! This picture was taken in Shangai, Penha/RJ. The merry-go-round was my favorite ride!! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

jogos

 

 

 With a lot of free time on my hands (oh, how I miss this!), I used to play a lot of games with my friends. Here are some of my favorites!

Good times! I was very happy!!

 

 

 

 

  

video_game

 

  Ah, video games!!! I still love them!! 

That was my first video game: CCE Atari. I loved playing “Enduro”, “Pitfall” and of course, “Pacman”. 

This used to be the best video game ever… Funny how things change, huh? Today I play my Playstation 2 (wishing I had a PS3!), and I’m sure if I asked any kid today  his opinion about Atari, he would laugh at my face…. eheh

 

 

 

 

Digitalizar0001

 

  Yeah, I used to like Carnaval…. only because I could get dressed up like a bate-bola and scare people… hehehe

I was five and I lived in Vila da Penha (I still do!) in an apartment. It was really fun! 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

cartoons

 

  

 Ah… TV ! I used to spend hours in front of it,  watching my favorite cartoons! There are so many that I can’t remember all of them! Here are some of my favorite cartoons!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh, a lot of good memories!!!

A lot of free time to play, read, draw, run…. I was free as a bird! I sure miss that today!

*******
