I VISIT SCULPTURES AND CITYS VERY BEAUTIFUL.
MOUNT RUSHMORE, ITS VERY BEAUTIFUL


Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States. Sculpted by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot (18 m) sculptures of the heads of former United States presidents (in order from left to right) George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres (5.17 km2) and is 5,725 feet (1,745 m) above sea level.
South Dakota historian Doane Robinson is credited with conceiving the idea of carving the likenesses of famous people into the Black Hills region of South Dakota in order to promote tourism in the region. Robinson's initial idea was to sculpt the Needles; however, Gutzon Borglum rejected the Needles site due to the poor quality of the granite and strong opposition from environmentalists and Native American groups. They settled on the Mount Rushmore location, the tallest mountain in the region, which also has the advantage of facing southeast for maximum sun exposure. Borglum also decided the sculpture should have a more national focus, and chose the four presidents whose likenesses would be carved into the mountain. After securing federal funding, construction on the memorial began in 1927, and the presidents' faces were completed between 1934 and 1939. Upon Gutzon Borglum's death in March 1941, his son Lincoln Borglum took over construction. Although the initial concept called for each president to be depicted from head to waist, lack of funding forced construction to end in late October 1941.
The U.S. National Park Service took control of the memorial in 1933, while it was still under construction, and manages the memorial to the present day. It attracts approximately two million people annually.

TERRA EGYPTA. IS VERY GOOD


Egypt is one of the most populous countries in Africa and the Middle East. The great majority of its over 81 million people[3] live near the banks of the Nile River, in an area of about 40,000 square kilometers (15,000 sq mi), where the only arable land is found. The large areas of the Sahara Desert are sparsely inhabited. About half of Egypt's residents live in urban areas, with most spread across the densely populated centres of greater Cairo, Alexandria and other major cities in the Nile Delta.
Monuments in Egypt such as the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx were constructed by its ancient civilization. Its ancient ruins, such as those of Memphis, Thebes, and Karnak and the Valley of the Kings outside Luxor, are a significant focus of archaeological study. The tourism industry and the Red Sea Riviera employ about 12% of Egypt's workforce.
The economy of Egypt is one of the most diversified in the Middle East, with sectors such as tourism, agriculture, industry and service at almost equal production levels.


IN FRONT OF THE DOOR


HISTORY OF PARIS 1900

Paris is the capital and largest city of France. It is situated on the river Seine, in northern France, at the heart of the Île-de-France region (or Paris Region, French: Région parisienne). The city of Paris, within its administrative limits (the 20 arrondissements) largely unchanged since 1860, has an estimated population of 2,211,297(January 2008), but the Paris metropolitan area has a population of 12,089,098 (January 2008), and is one of the most populated metropolitan areas in Europe.[5] Paris was the largest city in the Western world for about 1,000 years, prior to the 19th century, and the largest in the entire world between the 16th and 19th centuries.
Paris is today one of the world's leading business and cultural centres, and its influences in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities.[9][10][11][12] It hosts the headquarters of many international organizations such as UNESCO, the OECD, the International Chamber of Commerce or the informal Paris Club. Paris is considered one of the greenest[13] and most liveable cities in Europe. It is also one of the most expensive.
Paris and the Paris Region, with €552.1 billion (US$768.9 billion) in 2009, produce more than a quarter of the gross domestic product of France. According to 2008 estimates, the Paris agglomeration is Europe's biggest or second biggest city economy and the sixth largest in the world. The Paris Region hosts the eadquarters of 33 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, the highest such concentration in Europe, hosted in several business districts, notably La Défense, the largest dedicated business district in Europe. The Paris region has the highest concentration of higher education students in the European Union, is the first in Europe in terms of research and development capability and expenditure and is considered one of the best cities in the world for innovation. With about 42 million tourists annually in the city and its suburbs, Paris is the most visited city in the world. The city and its region contain 3,800 historical monuments and four UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

IN FRONT OF A BUILDING IN PARIS 1900
IN FRONT OF THE MACHU PICCHU



Being in a place of difficult access, Machu Picchu was defended by its protected location, which also helped keep it hidden for so many centuries. It was supposedly built around 1450 A.D. which was inhabited by a few thousand people, mostly priests and senior families with their servers.

Machu Picchu is Peru's emblematic monument. It was discovered in 1911 by English archaeologist Hiram Bingham, this is truly one of the most imposing monuments and stunning the world, justly renowned Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Hidden between the cliffs and lush vegetation, the ancient city of Machu Picchu remained secret until the twentieth century, and not even the Spanish conquerors, in their search for treasures, were able to find. Machu Picchu was quiet, uninhabited and silent in the mists of the Peruvian highlands with their secrets hidden since it was abandoned even before the conquest.

To get there you venture out on a winding path that climbs to the top of the mountain, skirting impressive depths. The atmosphere is typical of the jungle until it reaches a height where vegetation decreases, allowing a glimpse, for the first time, a thousand feet above the ruins of ancient buildings. However, to achieve, we must still face a steep staircase. But worth the climb for as long staircase, as his term ends in the Intihuatana and the Sacred Plaza.

MARACAIBO

My name’s DIEGO RINCON, I’m from Maracaibo, originally. I live in Maracaibo, in Urb. la Rotaria. I’m 20 years old and I study computer engineering at URBE . My favorite subjects are algebramathematics and English. This trimester I am taking 4 classes and I am in the 3th trimester.


I love  music, my favorite is the reggaeton, i like the sound car stereo,dancing in the partys, playing soccer with my friends and my family, driving my car (I have a blue sport car), surfing the net, studying English in my house, talking on the phone with my friends, pizza , chocolate, my family , my country and my dog. I also enjoy going out with my friends.

I hate onions, listening to hip hop , getting up early on the weekend, violence, war, injustice, and washing the dishes. I can't stand people smoking, i don´t like the brocoli.

My dream is to travel around the world, visit the Pyramids in Egypt and The Eiffel Tower in Paris. Of course, I want to graduate from Engineering School and be a good engineer. I also want to learn to speak French, and Italian. I’d love to work in an important company and buy a house, get married and start a family.

About English, I love to learn new languages. I think English is very important. What do I do to practice my English? well, I listen to music and watch TV in English. It’s a good exercise. I also chat on the internet and have friends in many countries. I use social networks like facebook, twitter and the blackberry messenger to connect to people around the world and make friends. I can write well, but I need to practice more. The most difficult for me is speaking. I want to practice in class and out of class, too. I hope I can make a lot of friends and practice speaking in this class.

Well, This is a little bit about me. Hope you liked it... Please, leave a comment!
