Mexico's FABULOUS Physical Features

Mexico does indeed have some amazing and stunning physical features. One phtysical feature is the Copper Canyon. The Copper Canyon is similar to the Grand Canyon, which is located in Arizona, however, the Copper Canyon is in fact, even bigger and more deeper! This canyon was formed by six rivers and Mexico's highest waterfall, Cascada de Basaseachi, is also located there as well. One of the best way to see this giant canyon is from the Copper Canyon Railway. Surely if you visit Mexico, you must check this out. Another great and fantastic physical feature is the Yucatan Peninsula. This ancient monument separates the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. The Yucatan Peninsula also has a FABULOUS view of photography for the beaches along with its miles of coastline. The ancient Maya civilaction used cenotes-which are water and soft limestone mixed together and also the materiel that makes up the peninsula-to build burials and rituals. Doesn't that sound beautiful? ONE place I would love to go is Baja California, which is a peninsula hanging off Mexico that's looks like an icicle. It's a desert that's filled with beautiful cactus and it's has a gorgeous white-sand beach. Grey whales often come to this peninsula and give birth to baby whales. If you're really lucky, you may get to touch one of this small baby whales that are as curious about you as you are!

Brazil Environmental Concerns

Brazil contains most of the Amazon Rainforest in its country. However, this fact is dying due to the fact that so many trees are being cut every single day in not just the Amazon Rainforest, but in lots of other forests as well to make furniture of tables, etc. Additionally, the Amazon Rainforest contains 1/3 of the worlds oxygen. If we continue cutting

down the trees, then you are basically killing ourselves. One way we can stop this concern is the most obvious choice. Stop cutting the trees. Duh! What is the most easiest thing to do is the most hardest, since logging is a major business in Brazil. Another way to save the trees is to plant seeds for the trees that have been cut. This way, more trees can grow, and humans could balance out the cutting.

Who controls what in Cuba

In Cuba, the current leader is Raul Castro, who replaces his brother, Fidel Castro, in February 24, 2008. Fidel Castro was "president"(quotation marks due to the fact that he wasn't president, but dictator. Castro just didn't want the world to know him as a dictator). Because he was a dictator, Castro was in control of EVERYTHING. Since the Castro brothers were dictators, they could be in control for years, until the leader gives that title to the next person in line. The current type of government is a autocratic communist government. They system of government is an unitary system of government. One current issue of this government is that because Cuba's much closer to the U.S. than almost any other communist country, Cuba could attack the United States much faster than any other communist country. This means while some communist countries can blow stronger hits, Cuba could attack at a much faster rate than North Korea for example.

History Lesson On Peru

About 500 years ago, there was an ancient civilization that lived in Peru called the Incas. The Inca Empire, or also known as the Inka empire, was the largest empire in the times before Colombian American. For a long time, the Incas used a variety of methods to take over, such as peacefully taking over land, or sometimes brutally killing natives from other present day countries. The official language of the empire was Quechua, although many other local languages were spoken. Everything was fine. What could possibly go wrong? I tell you. In a few years after Happy Land, the Spanish conquistadors came. Lead by Francisco Pizarro, the Spanish demolished the Inca Empire from weapons and disease. Soon, the Inca empire fell, and almost everyone died.
