    First of all, Polish people are thought to be a sad nation. They never smile, but complain a lot. People on the streets do not smile, service workers also not. You expect store clerk to smile back to you? Forget about it. But if you ask them how is he/she doing you will probably get a lot of complaints and grouching because they are pessimists. That may be because of Polish village is constantly covered with snow and Polish farmers do not use any agricultural machines.

    For my term paper I chose to focus on the Republic of Belarus. It is a small country located east of Poland with a population of 9,600,000 people. The country used to be apart of the USSR until it gained independence on August 25, 1991. Belarus considers themselves to be a Republic but in actuality they have a dictatorship. The chief of state has been Aleksander Lukashenko since July 20, 1994. The reason that this country is considered a dictatorship is because according to the constitution, the next election should have taken place in 1999 but Lukashenko extended it until 2001. Also with an October 2004 referendum, gave the president permission to run for a third and fourth term leaving Lukashenko still in power until this day.…

    I’m looking forward to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa, it would be good to learn the history about it. Another place would be the Colosseum. The view from the Vesuvian Institute is beautiful with the water and buildings it’s the kind of site that makes you not want to leave. The center of town is a better view from the small streets, it’s more spaced out and there is a lot of things to observe. My confidence level at this time is high, I am more than ready to find my own way back it may take a little time, but it would be worth it. Gives me some more time view the scenery Italy has to offer. I know all of the food will taste good and I won’t be disappointed it will be authentic Italian food all fresh made from scratch that will be better from nowhere else but Italy. After my stay in Italy I was really surprised at how all the sites were it was nothing like I expected it was better this is a trip I would love to take again. Last year my school went on a two-week trip to Italy.We flew to Milan, and went to Rome, Florence, Assisi, Capri and Bologna.We visited many historical sites, including St. Peter's Cathedral, theStatue of David and the home of Marco Polo. We ate the best pizza I evertasted; the crust was very thin and really cheesy. My favorite city isVenice, the city surrounded by water. When we arrived I was madespeechless by the romance of the city. The people were beautiful and thecity made me want to fall in love. I have grown up in a Spanish-speakingfamily, and since Italian and Spanish are similar, I could order mymeals and speak with people.…
