Dear God,

I am currently in Brazil, and it is the best day of my life. While I have been down in Brazil I been looking at some new stuff like the waterfalls, the animals and lots more interesting things. I also learned how to speak in different languages like Portuguese, Spanish, English, and French. Did you know that Brazil is one of the largest democracies in the world? Brazil is also a federative republic. Brazil is the largest country in the world and also known as the fifth populous. As I was saying at the beginning how I saw some interesting stuff like the waterfalls, well most of the waterfalls are incredible, the waterfall that I saw is so wonderful I mean its like you picturing its your dream home eating fruits and sandwiches and just getting relaxation its just the greatest thing on earth.

Dear God,

I also learned that all cemeteries are different from others, this cemetery has trees instead of stones. Isn’t that weird!? Have you ever thought about kids being professional scientist? Well way back in the day they had kids in the eleventh grade being professional scientist. Well I wish I could write more but i gotta go. So hope you see more in the rest of region 2.

Dear god21 l.jpg
Dear God,

  • I’ve now left Namibia and I’m currently in Egypt. I’ve been waiting to get here. I heard so many things about Egypt. I plan on learning about the different languages they speak, their economy, and more cooler things. Throughout my presentation of Egypt you will learn more about it. Well gotta go so I’ll catch u next time. I also learned that the ancient Egyptians thought of Egypt as being divided into two types of land, the 'black land' and the 'red land‘. I also read in an Article that is says “The regularity and richness of the annual Nile River flood, coupled with semi-isolation provided by deserts to the east and west, allowed for the development of one of the world's great civilizations. A unified kingdom arose circa 3200 B.C., and a series of dynasties ruled in Egypt for the next three millennia. The last native dynasty fell to the Persians in 341 B.C., who in turn were replaced by the Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines. It was the Arabs who introduced Islam and the Arabic language in the 7th century and who ruled for the next 7th century” Isn’t that weird? Well I can’t find out about Egypt’s weather but it seems like the weather is on and off, like sometimes it can be cold and windy and snowy, and sometimes it can even be warm, nice out, and other weather issues. Well gotta go hope you see and learn more about Egypt throughout this slideshow.

Economy24 l.jpg

Lack of substantial progress on economic reform since the mid 1990s has limited foreign direct investment in Egypt and kept annual GDP growth in the range of 2-3 percent in 2001-03. The existence of a black market for hard currency is evidence that the government continues to influence the official exchange rate offered in banks. In September 2003, Egyptian officials increased subsidies on basic foodstuffs, helping to calm a frustrated public but widening an already deep budget deficit.

Economy here just relaxing and having a good time?

Turkey is divided into 16 provinces. In addition to the capital and major ports, the country's major cities include Białystok, Bydgoszcz, Bytom, Częstochowa, Gdańsk, Gliwice, Katowice, Kraków, Łódź, Lublin, Poznań, Radom, Tarnowskie Góry, and Wrocław. The Turkish economy grew rapidly in the mid-1990s, but growth has slowed considerably in recent years. Throughout the 1990s the United States and other Western countries supported the growth of a free enterprise economy by reducing Turkey's foreign debt burden, providing economic aid, and lowering trade barriers.

Tight monetary policy and slow growth have helped temper inflation, which was down to 5.5% in 2001. Likewise, Turkey's current account deficit, which grew rapidly in the late 1990's, fell to 4.0% of GDP in 2001. The budget deficit remains a source of concern: the slowing economy drove up the deficit to an estimated 5% of GDP in 2001.

Dear god37 l.jpg
Dear God here just relaxing and having a good time?

Well it’s been great to be traveling across the world. I’ve had so much fun its been amazing. Well now I’m currently in Poland I just came from Romania. I cultured a lot of new events and writings of old Ancient Egypt.

In Poland I plan to learn a lot of things like what languages they speak, their race, their economy, and many other interesting facts about Poland. I hope I will have a great time and hope you learn more about Poland through my slides of Poland.

I have learned that Poland began to form into a recognizable unitary and territorial entity around the middle of the 10th century under the Piast Dynasty. I also found out that Poland was also a center of migration of peoples and the Jewish community began to settle and flourish in Poland during this era. I also found out that Poland adopted a new constitution in May in 1997, after eight years of debate but public support was lukewarm.

I feel great about being here because I can explore everything here and learn more things about Poland. I really hope I can enjoy myself just exactly like I’ve been doing in all of my other countries I’ve been doing. Hope you learn lots about Poland through my slides and hope to hear about you being here one day.

Poland s economy l.jpg
Poland’s Economy here just relaxing and having a good time?

  • Poland is governed under the 1997 constitution. The bicameral parliament consists of a 460-seat Sejm (lower house) and a 100-seat Senate (upper house). Members of both bodies are elected for four-year terms. Poland has steadfastly pursued a policy of economic liberalization throughout the 1990s and today stands out as a success story among transition economies. Even so, much remains to be done. The privatization of small and medium state-owned companies and a liberal law on establishing new firms has encouraged the development of the private business sector, but legal and bureaucratic obstacles alongside persistent corruption are hampering its further development. Poland's agricultural sector remains handicapped by structural problems, surplus labor, inefficient small farms, and lack of investment. Due to political uncertainty, the zloty has recently depreciated in relation to the euro, while currencies of the other euro-zone aspirants have been appreciating. GDP per capita equals that of the three Baltic states.

Dear God, can be here just having a wonderful time and being relaxed? I know I wish I can be here just because it is so, so, so, beautiful.

Hey! I’m back! Well I really enjoyed myself while I was in Poland. I’ve learned a lot. Well throughout this presentation I have loved to learn about their culture, their state facts, their currency, religion, and languages. I also conclude that all of my regions have similarities and differences. The differences are that they all don’t have the same money, the same regions, and the same history. The similarities is that they have nothing in common really. The only thing that they have in common is that they all have differences.

Well gotta finish the rest of my presentation. Hope you enjoy the final piece.
