Transcript of Peru: An Amazing and Very Interesting Country!

By eskrein The Country of Peru Peru is in South America, near Bolivia, Chile, and Brazil. Peru... Where in the world is it? Peru has a population of approximately 29.2 million people, and they speak the languages of Spanish, Quechua, and Aymara. Peru exports fish products, minerals like gold, zinc, and lead, asparagus, coffee, petroleum products, and textiles. Places To Go: Machu Piccu Huacachina is a desert oasis outside the town of Ica. In this diamond in the rough, you can ride on the sand buggies... The drivers will leave you breathless and screaming as they speed all over the dunes! In Huacachina, sand surfing is a must do on anyone's list! On a sand board you can surf the sand 'waves'. Some people do surf on their bellies; are you brave enough to stand? Places To Go: Huacachina "The Nazca Lines are located in the arid Peruvian coastal plain... The Nazca Lines, which were scratched on the surface of the ground between 500 B.C. and A.D. 500, are among archaeology's greatest enigmas because of their quantity, nature, size and continuity.
The geoglyphs depict living creatures, stylized plants and imaginary beings, as well as geometric figures several kilometers long. They are believed to have had ritual astronomical functions." - Go2Peru.com Places To Go: Nazca Lines José de San Martín and Simón Bolívar liberated Peru from Spain. Peru's first president was Fernando Belaúnde Terry, and their current president is Ollanta Humala. Ollanta Humala

Fernando Terry Important People In Peru Peru's currency is called the Nuevo Sol, and one dollar is about three or four nuevo sols. Before European influence, Incans lived high in the mountain tops of Peru. When the Spanish first landed in Peru, they captured an Incan. The Incan didn't know what they were asking him, so he said his name: Beru. They thought he had answered them, telling them the name of the land, and hence the name Peru! The Incas had strict laws, a calendar, and even a clock; sadly, these were razed with the Incan cities by Spanish conquistadors. Peru gained it's independance with help from Simón Bolivar and Jose de San Martín and is now an independant country of its own. Currency and History Many thanks to the following:

www.prezi.com My Resources and References Peru has an area of 496,200 sq miles. "Peru’s major imports are petroleum and petroleum products, plastics, machinery, vehicles, iron and steel, wheat and paper. Its main import partners are United States, China, European Union, Brazil and Ecuador." - tradingeconomics.com Macchu Picchu is a large city made by the Aztecs up on the mountain tops. It was one of the few cities that wasn't razed by the Spanish conquistadors because no one could find it- there were legends about it and many people tried to find the lost city, but after many failures people gave up. However, it was found by a explorer who didn't give up hope and Macchu Picchu now is a main tourist attracion in Peru.
