Hola people 😊. Of course you know that this music group on the postcard is called Mariachi and I believe in your mind you already played some mexican music. Lando is wishing for me, to go there one day and…
The official name of for Mexico is the United Mexican States.
Mexico is stretching from the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific which means there are wide varieties of climates, cuisines, cultures, landscapes, and lifestyles. From warm and humid on the coasts (cooling down to pleasant temperatures in the winter), to the eternal spring-like climate of the Colonial Highlands and Lake Chapala, to the dry heat of the desert climate of Baja California, which only receives 15 or so days of rain per year. In short there’s a climate for everybody.
Stone tools have been found in Mexico that suggest the existence of humans there around 23000 years ago. Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula is home to a dazzling array of Mayan ruins, both large and small.
The highest mountain in Mexico is Pico de Orizaba, a dormant volcano that reaches 5,636 metres above sea level. But also, Mexico is home to the world’s smallest volcano! A small-cano, if you will 😊. The Cuexcomate Volcano sits just outside the city of Puebla and stands a cute 13 metres tall.
The peninsula to the west of mainland Mexico called Baja California has over 120 species of cactus that are growing there.
Mexico is one of the most bio-diverse countries on earth. The country has the most reptile species in the world housing over 700 reptile species and also has the second most (over 430) mammal species in the world.
Chocolate, chilies and corn come originally from Mexico. Did you know that hot chocolate was considered the sacred drink by the Aztecs? Well know you know 😊
