I was first suscribed to N.G. when I was twelve, magazines came to me directly from Washington DC, there was no spanish version yet.
An american friend of my parents lectured on english language, and in 1984 she had to go home, Cleveland (Ohio), and thanks to her ,I started to discover not only the english language but also a new world of discoveries, explorers, and journeys around the world, discovering new animal species, new lost worlds, maps of everywhere and new challenges of the humankind.
Today, in 2012 , when I am nearly forty, I appreciate so much that present almost thirty years ago, because it supposed to me opening my eyes to a new world, and I keep my own adventurer spirit in my life and I try to give this special heritage to my daughter.
Thanks a lot, Anna.
