Happy Valentine´s Day!

What is love for you? Would you like to know what people think about it? Watch this video by Yann Arthus-Bertrand where he gets testimonies from people all around the world (they speak in their native languages but the subtitles are in English) and let me know what definitions you agree with, you like -or you dislike. I can tell you I was amazed at some of the opinions -  for example, the Mexican man´s; I felt sorry for others, for example, the Cuban woman; and I smiled when I read the definition of love by the last woman in the video, a woman from Egypt - I´m sure you´ll understand why when you hear them.

Here are some words you may need as you watch:

* flabbergasted
* have a crush on someone
* widow / widower
* flutter
* to melt

What is love for you? If you were one of the people interviewed for the documentary, what would you answer?

I did not want to write about Valentine´s Day and not include a love song but I did not want a cheesy one so I hope you like my choice: Bright Eyes´ "First Day of My Life." I hope you´ll enjoy both the song (check the lyrics below)  and the video.

And for those of you in love, be original and learn how to say "I love you " in a different language.

    I don't agree with the woman who lives in Siberia because she thinks that love is a habit and true love is only on tv. I feel sorry about the woman who lives in Bolivia because his parner cheated on her so now, she doesn't believe in love anymore. IT was very funny and true the description of love by the girl from Indonesia because she comparelove with an egg.

    If i was in the interview i would say that love is that person who understad you, help you and makes you happy. I mean, the person who complete youself.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Lorena! Great insight

  3. Love is surrender to something, to someone ..... ¡without conditions!

  4. I agree, Enrique. When you fall in love you unconsciously surrender to someone.
