skinny person..... I have an older sister and a younger brother,both are skinny..... I am the sandwich of the three of us...... I have always be the fat one.......
At the age of 7 I went to my first of the thousands
doctors to help me with my obesity....... I still
hateing that woman...... she make me eat for
a week in the morning an orange not in juice, for
lunch 2 hamburguers (with out bread only meat) and
one orange and for dinner one hamburguer just like
the lunch and one orange...... I completely after that hate
the oranges only in juice i like them..... You can imagine
what a frustration I had, but it wasn´t all, the doctor
don´t let me wacht TV at all........ Oh my god I was
only seven (7) years old...... What can you spect of a
girl of that age??????

The Cerro El Ávila forms an integral part of Caracas, and
it is from this famous hill that Caracas has obtained the
nickname of "The Sultan of Ávila". Our valley owes its
yearly average temperature of 23°C to this hill, which
separates the city from the Caribbean coast, and is
known as the "green guardian". It also provides the
city with a permanent supply of oxygen. The Guaraira
Repano hill in Sierra Grande, whose indigenous name
was changed, is now named after Alférez Mayor from
Campo Gabriel de Ávila. In 1575 he set up camp on its
hillside. Few cities in the world possess a place of such
diversity like that of El Ávila, which is a paradise for
adventurers, explorers, nature lovers, generations of
artists, scientists and children of all ages. The Parque
Nacional, which was opened in 1958, and currently covers
an area of 85,192 hectares, offers many places of
interest, such as El Pico Naiguatá (the Naiguatá summit,
which reaches a height of 2,765 meters), la Silla de
Caracas (the Seat of Caracas), el Camino de los Españoles
(the Route of the Spaniards), el Castillo de San Carlos
(San Carlos' Castle), la Hacienda Santo Cristo and la
Fila del Indio. The historic ruins include Corozal, Guayabal
and Tabacal, the Sanctuaries of Sabas Nieves, Sebucán
and La Julia, and the Galipán village, which is the sole
authorized commune in the park.
