At the start of 2020, we heard about something strange – it was called the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Actually, we did not care about it in the beginning but in March, the situation became dangerous so every country adopted some steps to protect their people. However, each person is primarily responsible for his or her physical and psychological health. Therefore, here is some advice about how to deal with this period.


First, you have to stay at home and do not go out unless necessary because if you go out, you may be more at risk. Secondly, if you come back home, wash your hands for twenty seconds as it can keep you healthy and prevent the spread of the virus. Next, try to use gloves and wear a facemask and change it from time to time since it plays a very important role. Finally, if you have any coronavirus symptoms, use the 111 online coronavirus service immediately.

Visit Machu Pichu! by Yamileth

Machu Picchu was an Inca citadel that was built in the 15th century. The citadel was built as a site of ancient Inca ruins located in the northwest of Cuzco, Peru. It is located between two sharp mountaintops: Machu Picchu “Old Peak” and Huayna Picchu “New Peak” at an elevation of 7,710 feet (2,350 meters). One of the few major pre-Columbian ruins found nearly intact, Machu Picchu was nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983, one of the new ‘Seven Wonders of the World’.

My Experience in Machu Picchu:

I spent three days in this beautiful site, as part of a group tour. where we hiked up Machu Picchu mountain and Huayna Picchu. It’s a breath-taking view but there is very low oxygen in the air because of the altitude – but I had my coca leaves with me. My friends and I had an awesome and unforgettable experience.
