Reflection Paragraph

This unit on Peru has been a blast I have learned a lot about Peru and its three regions. I never new it would have been this much fun on the Wiki site without Mr. Hayes amazing effort to create to be a fun technology simulation game. I would have never thought about experience any thing like this, instead I thought Mr. Hayes would read us notes on Peru and homework and more homework. But this is amazing! Thanks Mr. Hayes!!!!




3 Regions:

1- Montana jungle



It’s a hot, humid region; the Montana is covered with the delicious vegetation typical of a tropical forest zone. Only a few roads connect the Montana to the Sierra and Coast, permitting shipping of timber and tropical fruits and vegetables to markets in the cities of Peru. A number of large rivers flow north- and eastward out of the sierra and Montana, crossing the plains of eastern Peru to….
The Peruvian Jungle contains animals like the pumas, jaguars, and birds such as the macaque and the toucan. Some of the other unfamiliar creatures are the Incan hairless dogs, otherwise known as Peruvian Inca Orchid. The Andean regions of Peru house the llamas and alpaca. The llamas are bred for the meat and the alpacas, for fur that is used for making wool. Birds in this country are also a diverse lot. The largest flying bird on earth is the condor, and it resides in this country. The climate of most of Great Plains Montana Jungle is semiarid, with warm summers and cold winters. In Total snowfall is light. The
**Chinook**, a warm winter wind that blows on the plains near the foot of the Rockies, periodically interrupts the bitter cold—with January temperatures averaging 18° F (-8° C)—for which Montana is notorious
. Montana Jungle is dived into 2 subs regions called the: High Selva, the low Selva. The high Selva is forested with trees and flowers, bushes, plants also is located east of the Andes Mountain! And the low Selva is further east from the high Selva and made up as a wet jungle. Most of these areas are either thick dense forest area or dense jungle. There is very little human habitation but home to many many animals, for example jaguar, birds, and insects… Most rainfalls are about 2540 millimeters and temperature around about 25 degrees or even hotter. (Wow that’s a lot) The Montana Jungle also supplies and have: bamboo for building shelter and even sometimes to goof around with, foliage, and huts for shelter, above ground rivers, some times even wells for more water.





2- Coastal Desert


In the Coastal Desert there are a lot of fabulous places to go! For example the Lima mall, Branco and Son Sidro beach, Mount lasso, and Nazca. And there are many many more places to experience in the coastal desert! One activity in the coastal Desert that is very related to us is surf boarding, and swimming. There is a very neat sport on beaches in Peru and its called sanboarding. (Its sounds very cool) And its environment is beaches, water, and dry land. This is not a hot desert, however; average temperatures of the Costa range from 66 °F (19 °C) in winter to 72 °F (22 °C) in summer. Despite its dryness, some parts of the Costa receive sufficient moisture from winter fogs (locally known as garúa) to support some vegetation. Drugs: Peru has a strict and comprehensive law forbidding all possession of, use of and dealing in drugs, including marijuana and cocaine. Violators are not deported, but are jailed under Peruvian law. There is not bail. You are guilty until proven the contrary. Peru is currently a democratic country, but this has not been all the time. Like many other South American countries from time to time, it has dictatorships, even sometimes are disguised behind the democracy mask! Spanish and Quecha, Aymara are all official languages in Peru and the coastal desert! Watch out for pickpockets and thieves, especially in big cities such Lima, even Arequipa. Write your passport number and keep it in a safe place, just in case. Don't keep money or passport in backpacks. Do not leave purses, cameras unattended. Transportation in the coastal desert are by renting cars or taxi, there is also motorcycle is the most used transportation is the most used in Peru and the Coastal Desert. And at any time you can rent any transportation: car, taxi, or going on the bus. Taxi cars are in bad condition and smell. Buses are cheap and sometimes easy to use on less if you go on the wrong time. Local busses are 99% packed with people. The Coastal Desert foods have soo many different of flavors. The most famous food are: 1) Raw fish marinated in Lemon juice 2) Meat and veggies cooked underground 3) Potatoes with veggies 4) Potatoes with meat 5) Shrimp with hot sauce 6) Smoked salmon' 7) And salmon! There are also some more cool stuff to do in the Coastal desert like fishing,boating(rafting,canooing), and camping!



3- Sierra mountains


In the sierra mountains there are amazing cites to visit like Lima (the capital city of Peru) , Cusco,Ica, Pisco,& Puno! They also have many delicious dishes in the Sierra Mountains for example like the Ocapa its made out of boiled potatoes in seasoned sauce of cheese and nuts, This dish is very popular in the Sierra because the Andes use to eat them, there for making it very popular in it`s region!
There is also the Cau Cau dish, Carapulca and many many more.
Peru has one of the most extreme mountains in the world. And that is why the Sierra Mountains have the best rock climbing area in South America! Those mountains are for some of the best rock climbing places in Peru. The usual climate in the sierra mountains are
temperature are about 3°C, the minimum
being -30°C. Mean annual precipitation is approximately 884mm (recorded at 3,980m), falling mainly between October and May. The Sierra Mountains cover 28% of the land in Peru, and also it’s a difficult place to live!
Because it’s extreme climate and rough land it is not healthy for humans. But the positive part about the Sierra is that there is fresh made from melting snow. They also have very big clothing for the winter and less in the summer. There transportation in the Sierra is mostly walking, there is also traveling by bus which are really expensive and aren’t that really good. The Sierra Mountains contain three ranges Corilla Occidental (along the West coast)
, Cordilla Blanca (East and the highest range), Cordilla Azau! (East & North of western life)
The Sierra mountain has alot of Historical places.
