Mexico

Its full name is United Mexican States. This is country of South America and it is bordered with North America, Pacific Ocean, Guatemala, Belize, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. It covers almost 2 million square kilometres due to Mexico is the 5th largest country of Americas by total area. There live about 117 million of people and its capital, Mexico, is one of the most populated country in the world. After a colonization of people from Spain there lived Maya and Aztec. Mexico-Tenochtitlan was them base town. Now there are many residues of this civilizations.


There are hardly ever hot and there many rainy days too. Because of this strange climate in this place grew interesting plants, for example bushes, small trees, flora from jungle and cacti. But in Mexico we can find place , where snow persist- paramos, it’s mountainery pastures. In this country live many species of animals from rabbits and bears to sharks and pumas.

We can divide Mexico for Spanish-Metisse North and Indian South. Both have really fascinating tradition, for example on the north Aquascalientes- fight with bulls ; and on the South Indians has traditional dances, sometimes on their holiday they dance it on the streets.


This country is really special, because there are so many differences between everything: climate, animals, plants, people. Everything is really near each other, but completely mismatched. I think it is really worth to discover this magic place for yourself.

Pyramid of Cheops

This is one of seven World Wonders. It is situated in Giza ( Egypt ), 10 kilometres from the Cairo. In this area there are also Chefren’spyramid , Mykerinos’spyramid and also known well Sfinks ,so the sculpture, which have head of human and body of lion. This huge pyramid is the biggest pyramid of all world. Its box base have 230 square metres and it is 137 metres high ( now ), but before it was 147 metres high. In the time it is becoming shorter. This monument was built 4,5 thousand years ago. In that period of time people ( Egyptians ) must built pyramid for theirs pharaohs like a tombs (mausoleums ). They believed in life after death. It means, when somebody died they graved with this person everything, which is needed for normal life, for example food, clothes , tools or with many treasures, when this person was rich. Today many people were looking for this wealth in different pyramids. The pyramid of Cheops was grave of pharaoh Cheops ( Chufu ), of course. For this day nobody find treasure, which, for sure was somewhere in pyramid. This type of architecture have many secrets, because there were lots of mazes, corridors and so one…. We have only a small piece of information about this construction. This is really an interesting place. When we go there , we can go into pyramid, but only with guide and no everywhere.


This is really a mysterious place too. As I even thought it was built many , many years ago. So for us it’s really strange that those people could done something like this. They haven’t any machine, everything they made by hands. Cheops’s pyramid consists of 2,4 million blocks of rock and every one rock heavy 2.5 tons. So, how did people do this? They only used wood, water, knowledge and hand strength. This is incredible, isn’t it ? Every sight of pyramid is perfectly on the North, South, West and East. The enter is situated in the middle of North wall. To XIII century outside walls was covered discs of white alabaster, but for many years it fall off.

This is only one place like this in the world. I think it’s worth to see pyramid, Sfinks or Egipt. This is really fantastic place and I don’t wondered Cheops’s pyramid is on the list of UNESCO. I recommend everybody EGYPT!!!
