Geography

Kalahari Desert

As we are reading "Meerkat Mail" in connection with our topic, we have also begun exploring the Kalahari Desert.  This is a vast area in southern Africa.

We're also going to be exploring, in a little more detail, the country of Botswana.  Just one of the countries that's borders enter the Kalahari Desert.  One of the first things we learned was that Botswana is a landlocked country: this means it is surrounded by land on all sides and has NO coastlines!

Where is Peru?

Peru is a country in South America that's home to a section of Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu, an ancient Incan city high in the Andes mountains. The region around Machu Picchu, including the Sacred Valley, Inca Trail and colonial city of Cusco, is rich in archaeological sites.
