This week, we have a story written by Cristina, from Ottawa, Ontario. Cristina is enrolled in literacy classes at People, Words and Change in Ottawa.
In December for Christmas I went with my family to Villa La Angostura, to visit my sister. It’s a small village situated in the South of Neuquen Province, in Argentina. It’s a beautiful and peaceful place surrounded by mountains. It’s placed on the northeast side of Nahuel Huapi Lake.
Villa La Angostura is part of the entrance to Arrayanes National Park. Arrayanes is a kind of tree. This park is the only place in the world where there is a natural forest of these trees.
Villa La Angostura is a small and rustic village. The houses and the shops are made of wood. In their streets there are plenty of trees and beautiful gardens. That’s why it’s called “Jardin de Patagonia”, that means Patagonia’s garden. You can enjoy Villa La Angostura with your family, you can relax there and you can feel deeply peaceful.
It’s a wonderful place to bond with nature!
