Paco: Paco always does the lottery

Icono IDevice Reading activity


Apart from his family, Paco has got a lot of friends. They like football and they usually play it at weekends but they don't like doing the lottery every week, so Paco always does it on his own.

Fortunately, Paco doesn't have to share the lottery prize with anybody else. He doesn't really know what to do with this huge amount of money. He knows well his own likes, hobbies and interests and, above all, he is completely sure that he wants to make a tour round the world: he extremely loves travelling.

Paco and his father fishing

Paco enjoys going to the cinema with his friends. Action and mystery movies are his favourite ones. He also likes playing tennis and basketball at weekends. But his most enjoyable hobby is fishing. Paco is very good at it. He loves going fishing with his father. Both of them always practise catch and release fishing, that is to say, they don't take the fish home, they return the fish to the water. That is why he doesn't like hunting at all, because you kill animals.

Now Paco has the opportunity to buy a great fishing rod for his father. In fact, Paco can give him a motorboat. The whole family can go fishing to any reservoir around Cáceres with it.
