By: Amanda Spenard
Peru is located in Western South America. The Amazon and Madre de Dios rivers travel through Peru. The Andes mountain range is also partially in Peru, along with the Ucayali river. Peru has a very wide assortment of natural resources such as gold, silver, copper, zinc, lead and iron. There are also reserves of oil and natural gas. Some crops that grow in Peru are asparagus, potatoes, and rice. Peru is bordered by Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Ecuador.
Within the past year, Peru has passed a law to recycle plastic bottles into new plastic bottles. This law will help to decrease waste build up in the country.
Style of living
One of the most popular foods in Peru is ceviche, which can be made many different ways, but most of them are fish with lemon/lime juice and diced onions and peppers.
Many students wear uniforms, but when they are not in school, children who live in Lima and other urban areas they wear western style clothing.
