Cartagena de Indias, beautiful city on the Caribbean coast, well known world-wide for its clear water beaches, the stone walled old city, and that Magical Realism described by Gabriel Garcia Márquez in his Nobel Prize winning book, One Hundred Years of Solitude. If I were to talk about Cartagena to a foreigner I would say all this, because truly this is what Cartagena is all about, but this is not all there is to say. Cartagena, as I know it, is a city of many contrasts that, depending where you stand, can be experienced in many different ways. People from these areas, are diverse and so different in their behavior and customs that if you get the chance to meet them all, you would feel like you visited two or three different cities. The first Cartagena to mention is that one most foreigners know, that one that is ostentatious, pretentious, and expensive, that city that shows the best it has to attract more people than it can receive to benefit those who control it.
Bartolome Island The waters off of Bartolome Island are home to an amazing array of marine life, corral reefs, and underwater cliffs that make diving here an adventure. Large schools of fish, rays, white-tipped reef sharks, sea turtles, eels, sea lions, red-lipped batfish, are often seen during the descent. At ten meters, there is a volcanic shelf that leads to deeper underwater cliffs. This site is recommended for those who have logged a number of dives and are comfortable with moderate currents. Beagle Located two hours from the camp close to Santiago and Bartolome Islands, the Beagle dive is an eye-opening excursion into the fish of the Galapagos Marine Reserve.
They enhance the vividness of the scene and make it appear almost painted in the reader’s mind. Two pairs of contrasting colours dominate. The first two verses introduce the greenish blue of the pond and the complementary red of the villa. In view of the trimeter in the second and third verse, the first verse is most likely composed of two trochees framing a dactyl. It is, however, also possible to read a secondary stress on the second syllable of “meergrünen” and thus further emphasise the adjective, which compares the pond’s colour to the sea and adds depth and darkness to the image.
The Cape buffalo is hunted for its horns and has a payout of 12,500$ to 17,000$ and can either be found in South Africa or Mozambique which “is quickly becoming a premier destination for Cape Buffalo" (Adams). These beautiful creatures isn't in as much danger as the others considered as the big five like the African Leopard. The African Leopard is considered the smallest out of the big five and was hunted nearly to extinction for their skin; their payout is between 15,000$ to 35,000$. These beautiful creatures are mostly hunted in South Africa. In addition, cheetahs may not be considered in the big five but hunters still hunt them for high demand in their fur because “estimate that cheetahs have disappeared from 76% - 91% of their historic range on the continent” (Cruise).
She also tells a folklore about how “the Devil himself was pushed over a precipice by a pious shepherd named Dob.” Again, the connection to the culture and the narrative really pulled in my interest. The information on the pH of the ocean was really interesting. She explains well how one tenth of a difference in pH makes a huge difference in the ocean life (p 114). I think it makes the topic approachable for the
Since then, many Chinese human rights activists have been given prison sentences. “ Tiananmen Square demonstration for democratic reform is brutally suppressed” ( Benewick 72) China’s Economic superpower comes directly from being a member of the world trade organization (WTO). As a member China receives the same low tariffs or taxes on goods or services that other member countries receive.

This so-called “self-defence initiative” was actually a secret organization supervised by Jigee and Kogre to remove all threats or possible threats to the ape empire. It had been founded for nearly a century and had executed more than six-million protesters in this time. For both Jigee and Kogre, such an extermination mission was nothing out of the ordinary, even though it was practically the mass murder of millions of people. Since there were nearly eighty different intelligent species in the Amazon rainforest, both Jigee and Kogre felt that annihilating one of them would not pose a problem. They executed this plan and caused a long month of mass murder with millions of deaths staining the forest
Since during World War I a daily ton of minerals were extracted for the manufacture of ammunition, curiously with Chinese labor. In summer, most of the water evaporates and the remaining provided lots of round puddles. Pools have different colors depending on the minerals they contain and around water accumulations hardens leftover mineral to form natural walking routes. It is fifteen hectares that occupies and its contemplation provokes a sensation similar to that of seeing an abstract painting. It was in the hands of the Smith-Ernest family until in 1979 came the idea of building a spa there.

The purpose of the museum is “to discover interpret
Documentaries could be placed in the fine arts academic category. My favorite type of documentaries are the ones based on nature. Our world, especially the ocean, is such a wondrous place that I often catch myself in awe of the discoveries that are made. “Creatures of the Deep Ocean” provides a glimpse into the aquatic life that call the Mariana Trench home. The movie explains facts about the deepest part of the ocean, and how the animals that inhabit it have adapted to survive.
It’s December 19th, 1998 and the trial for the impeachment of President Clinton is about to take place. He has been our president since 1993, and now they think he needs to be impeached for everything he has done. However, I do not think he needs to be impeached he is a very good president. So far throughout his presidential term he has created over six million new jobs. “As a part of the 1993 Economic Plan, President Clinton cut taxes on fifteen million low-income families and made tax cuts available to ninety percent of small businesses, while raising taxes on just 1.2 percent of the wealthiest people (whitehouse.gov, 2013).
