World Culture and Environmental Issues
July 27, 2009
The purpose of this report is to show geographic representation of a country. For my report I chose Nicaragua. I will be describing its Geography, Climate, People and Culture, Tourism, Major Rivers, Mountains and Volcanos. Although Nicaragua is known to be a poor country it is known for its great people, tourism activities, and beautiful rivers and lakes. In the next few sections you will be able to have a narrower idea of Nicaragua’s culture, people, places, and much more. You will also be able to see Nicaragua’s major attractions in case you decide to visit on a vacation for exploring or just to relax.
Nicaragua was the choice of country to research because it is my family roots. Nicaragua is filled with many places and regions that many of us don’t know. These topics will be discussed in the following sections. I will cover from its geography all the way to its major rivers, volcanoes, climate, culture, people, and much more. Nicaragua is just as large as New York as you will see in the Geography section. There are two major rivers among sixteen of them that exist which will be discussed in the Major Rivers section. Climate in Nicaragua vary depending on the time of the year which is described in the Climate section as well. Nicaragua is known for lakes and volcanoes. Under the section of Mountains and Volcanoes you will be able to see some of the largest volcanoes which are used by visiting tourist to climb and hike. Some of these volcanoes surrounding Nicaragua are still active and most are dormant. I believe that even though there are many environmental issues in this country and it is categorized as a very poor country there is still much beauty to see and
