Paso 5: Guana

 

 

A mi grupo nos toco hacer el paso 5, osea el Paso de Guana.

Hice el trabajo con Lola Villegas, Milagros Mendez y Silvestre Braun

1)Se le ocurrió la idea porque atacar de frente era casi imposible, asi que se le ocurrió pasar por la cordillera para que la táctica sea sorpresa.

2)Es casi imposible de un montón de hombres que pueda cruzar la cordillera porque es muy peligroso y si sale mal muchos pueden morir, la forma fue muy despacio y llevaban mulas o burros por la altura, y había aborígenes que los ayudaban a no perderse.

3)Villicum – Tucumucu – Niquivil – San Jose de Jachal – Las Flores – Arrequintin – Paso de Agua Negra – Junta del Toro – Ricuña – Coquimbo

4)Se dividieron en 3 batallones de 20 soldados y 1 oficial. Salieron desde San Luis el 9 de Enero de 1817, y llegaron a Coquimbo luego de varias batallas, donde tomaron la ciudad y la Serena.

5)En el Paso del Planchón, el jefe fue Tte. Cnel. Ramon Freire. En el Paso del Portillo, el oficial Cap. Jose Leon Lemos fue quien lo comando. El Paso de Uspallata, Brig. Juan Gregorio Las Heras fue el comandante de este cruce. En el Paso de los Patos, hubieron tres comandantes. Ellos fueron General San Martín, Brig. Mayor Soler y Brig. O’Higgins. En el Paso de Guana, el comandante fue Tte. Cnel. Juan Manuel Cabot. Por último, en el Paso de Come-Caballo, el jefe fue Tte. Cnel. Francisco Zelada.

6)Es importante ya que este evento fue cuando Perú, Chile y Argentina se transformaron en países libres.

7)Que nos sirva a todos los Argentinos a recordar y valorar este evento crucial en nuestra historia.

8)El bicentenario del Cruce se debería celebrar en familia, agradeciendo el sacrificio que San Martín hizo por nosotros, y dándonos cuenta de lo distinta que seria nuestra realidad si el no hubiera hecho lo que hizo.

9)En la actualidad, el cruce es mas seguro de realizar ya que la gente toma precauciones que San Martín no pudo tomar en su momento, y saben que no corren un riesgo de muerte.

10)San Martín trataba a los oficiales y al pueblo como iguales, no se creia mas que ellos; Los trataba con respeto.

11)San Martín vivía simplemente, se dedicaba a su trabajo y prestaba atención a su familia.

12)Cuando San Martín regresa, es bienvenido por el pueblo por ser victorioso en su lucha por la libertad. Lo consideraban un héroe.

13)Lo que hace diferente a San Martín de los generales y patriotas es que liberó dos países, Bolivia y Chile, de los españoles.

4)

  1. “People once thought that volcanoes were portals to Hell”
  2. “ associated with death and destruction”
  3. “the size of a cathedral and the Statue of Liberty “
  4. “The ground space is the size of three full-sized basketball courts”
  5. “The subterranean walls are scorched with colours from a divine palette”
  6. “ Floodlights illuminate the walls and draw attention to the beauty humans were never intended to see”
  7. “A light rain weeps from the porous rock above and covers the crater sides with a shine that makes it sparkle”
  8. “ People whisper in respect to the sleeping giant who has lain dormant for 4,000 years”

 

The use of these powerful sentences in the two paragraphs are to make us imagine how the things were, to make us compare with things we actually know. By telling “The size of the Cathedral and the Statue of Liberty” I can imagine that the place was enormous and giant. In the other paragraph  by saying “The subterranean wall are scorched with colours from a divine palette” here there is also a comparison, I can interpret with this sentence that the subterranean was beautiful full of wonderful colors. This author compares the things exaggerating, to emphasis on how they were and to give richness to the paragraph.

 

5) Writing task

 

Compare the two main characters of More than just the disease and Face. What do they have in common? Write a paragraph (90-100 words)Include at least one conditional sentence and one compound adjective. Include at least three of the following terms:

grope for – overcast- to prune- to scold- nosy- sip- to shiver- to hum- to quiver- reluctant- to coax- gloomy- to gleam- scorching hot- rusty- to scratch.

The two main characters are Martin from “Face” and Neil from “More than just a disease” the two of them have many features and feelings in common. They are very insecure of themselves. Martin  after the accident and his face was completely felt he had no one that he was alone, no friends that no one understand him neither his family, paralel it was Neil who was not confident enough to tell his friend why he scratch so bad and about his skin illness,  even when it was scorching hot and he did not want to get into the sea. The two of them were very gloomy and depressed, it was more than their imperfections it was psychologically. Martin thought people was very narrow-minded after the incident of the. Moving one at the end both of the characters changed (they are developing characters)  and become stronger and self confident of who they really, without any complications nor obstacles at all.
