Choosing a Destination -
The world is a very big and very cool place. There are currently 196 countries and approximately 7.1 billion people living on earth. For this project we are going to focus on just 10 countries across 6 continents – Canada (North America), Mexico (Central America), Chile (South America), England (Europe), Germany (Europe), South Africa (Africa), United Arab Emirates (Middle East), Japan (Asia), Malaysia (South-East Asia), and Australia (Australasia).
Please click on the ‘World Map’ tab on the main menu. It will bring you to a big map. One by one click on the names of the countries and ready the ‘Quick Facts’ about each place.
After you have read the quick facts about each place you must choose ONE country that you would like to‘visit.’ On your blog post the name of the country and tell us why you have chosen to visit it. Please give, at least, two reasons for choosing the country.
While I was reading each 'Quick Fact' about each country I noticed that there were short videos for me to watch. They all involved many breath-taking sights and landscapes, but that was it. There were no mysterious places or any paranormal activity. But when I stumbled upon "Chile" I noticed that there was a short montage of strange symbols on one of the many deserts of Chile. I was surprised and curiously searched up on Google, "Mysterious places in Chile." I saw (no. 4) a paranormal related item, I was SO excited that I just started reading and reading until I realised that this would be one of the reasons why I would want to "visit" Chile!
Another reason why I would want to "visit" Chile is their food. One of the most exotic foods I have ever heard of is The Arrollado de Chancho. It's Pork wrapped in Pork fat and smothered in ají (Chili.) Okay I might of lied about liking all the food, but there is always their Cazuela de Ave. Which is chicken soup with pieces of meat, potatoes, green beans or peas, rice or noodles. (That's better.)
On Google, research the country that you have chosen to visit and write, in your own words, three interesting facts about that country. They must be facts that weren’t already provided on the World Map.
One of the most interesting facts I have ever learnt is that there are Penguins in Chile! It says in the article that there is a total population of 12,000 breading pairs in the country.
In the same article I have read that the Oldest Mummy comes from Chile! Apparently the mummy has no face and is a child.
On a different site I found out that they also have a 1,000 and 2,000 dollar note. Sometimes it would even go as high as 1,0000 dollars notes!
Write a letter to a friend or family member to tell them that you are going to visit your country of choice. In your letter, please tell them where you are going, why you have decided to go to the particular country and how long you will be away. Feel free to invite them to join you, if you’d like!

Hi! I am so sad but at the same time very excited. I will be travelling to Chile for a month. I have decided to go to Chile because of all of the opportunities for me to learn more about their culture. Not only that but I really want to visit The San Jose former hospital. I read on the internet that it's haunted! I was also wondering if you would like to come with me? I know you love everything paranormal.
