I do not usually write about me - well the truth is that I never write anything here - but some important changes are coming to my life. After years of planning and studying I´m finally ready to move to another country and try to find a place doing what I want. Even though I love aviation and I´m a private pilot my work has been related to another industry, I´ve been working in maintenance, fixing and restoring machines and running a machine shop for years know. From now on my plan is to earn a degree that maybe can lead me to find a way to enter the aerospace industry using all the experience that I have now and the knowledge that I might get studying. It was not easy to be in the position that I´m today, but now that Im only a month away from it I feel really proud. These are hard times the ones my country is living, and for someone like me who likes to do things the right way is getting harder and harder to be able to do it. Lots of people agree with what is happening, some others disagree and a lot more doesn´t pay attention; but I´ve been getting frustrated at the path this fucking revolution is taking. Now I´m at the point where I just wanna leave and try to leave more peacefully, safer and with better opportunities. The sad part is that I´m not alone, my family, friends, are here, although the truth is that from my old times friends Im the only one still living here. What will happen I do not know, and ever though that is an estrange and not pleasant feeling, is better than to be living with fear of been kidnapped, robed or even assassinated. Time will say what will happen, maybe I´ll come back, maybe not, the only thing that I can do is fight for what I want, and hope for the best.

Vostok 1 (Russian: Восток-1, East 1 or Orient 1) was the first spaceflight in the Vostok program and the first human spaceflight in history. The Vostok 3KA spacecraft was launched on April 12, 1961. The flight took Yuri Gagarin, a cosmonaut from the Soviet Union, into space. The flight marked the first time that a human entered outer space, as well as the first orbital flight of a manned vehicle. Vostok 1 was launched by the Soviet space program, and was designed by Soviet engineers guided by Sergei Korolev under the supervision of Kerim Kerimov and others.
