    The English word costumes = fantasia (clothes like carnival costumes or Halloween costumes)

    The Portugeuse word costumes = customs in English.

    Welcome: Bienvenido(a) (in Spanish)

    My country is very beautiful. It’s known as the “Everlasting Spring Country”. We call it like that because the weather is very nice. Never too hot, never too cold. Trees are always green and flowers are always blooming.

    There are tree things I like about Guatemala. One of them (probably the one I like the most) is its beautiful nature: rivers, lakes, mountains, volcanoes, jungles…

    The second one is it’s history. We were the homeland of the Great Maya Civilization. So, we’ve got beautiful Maya sites. Then we were conquered by Spaniards. So, we’ve got beautiful Colonial cities. And now, we are a modern country, with a beautiful (and modern) city.

    The third and final is our people and culture. Our people are Maya descendants… unique in the world.

    So, Guatemala is unique… and those who love it call it “Guatelinda”. =D

    Welcome: Welcome

    This morning I woke up from a short nights sleep and I watch a documentary called, “INSIDE THE PENTAGON”, after seeing this, I realize how proud I am to be an American. There are so many American men and women, who put their “lives on the line” for our name sake everyday. This is the most giving country and the place were you can come to make your dreams come true. The beauty of my country is the people that make this the country what it is…a land of the free and the home of the brave!!!!!!!!!

    What I like about the United States. I like the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, and the lovely beaches along our coasts. I marveled at the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls. I like Hollywood for its first class film industry. I like that America is a center for medical research. I like the way Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter are celebrated. I like the quality of the educational system that has produced so many Nobel Prize laureates and the exceptional Ivy League universities. I like American music. I like American poetry, literature, and American paintings.

    Welcome: Bienvenido(singular, male or neutral), Bienvenidos (plural, male or neutral) Bienvenida (singular female) Bienvenidas (female, plural)

    Text: What can I say about Mexico? It’s an amazing place, we have every single ecosystem in the world, we have oil, full natural resources, water, beautiful tourist places, natural wonders, a rich History… however we have one big and ominous drawback: we’re too close to the USA. So that’s basically it, the country moves to please the USA government, that’s us: USA backyard.
    But still, one of these days we’rre gonna be able to free ourselves from that influence and then… and then Mexico will be a great first world nation but even cooler because we have nice weather! (if mr bush doesn’t destroy the world before).
    By the way, it’s spelled Mexico with an x.. not Mejico.

    The people are pretty welcoming, and this is nice for any place.
