Travel Destinations in the Countries the Students Come From


Hi! My name is Claudia Jimenez. I was born  in Veracruz, Mex.

Located in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, El Tajin was at its height from the early 9th to the early 13th century. It became the most important centre in north- east Mesoamerica after the fall of the Teotihuacan Empire. Its cultural influence extended all along the Gulf and penetrated into the Maya region and the high plateau of central Mexico. Its architecture, which is unique in Mesoamerica, is characterized by elaborate carved relief's on the columns and frieze. The 'Pyramid of the Niches', a masterpiece of ancient Mexican and American architecture, reveals the astronomical and symbolic significance of the buildings. El Tajin has survived as an outstanding example of the grandeur and importance of the pre-Hispanic cultures of Mexico.










Hi everybody...
My name is Andres and I'm from Colombia. Like all the people here, I miss my city and my food. Colombia is a beutifull place to visit because it has a lot of different places, food, culture, music, and costums. Here are some pictures for all of you...
This picture is of the city where I was born. This is Bogota, the capital city of Colombia. It's the biggest city in my Country. One of the coolest things about my city is that you can see all the traditional and new architecture at the same time, and on the other side you can appreciate all the big mountains that we have around. 
These are some of my favorite dishes: The first one is "bandeja paisa", and the second one is "ajiaco". I hope you can enjoy it one time.
See you...
Take care everybody...

Hi! My name is Sindy Hernandez, and I am from Guatemala. I went to visit Antigua Guatemala four years ago. Antigua is among the oldest and most beautiful cities in Guatemala. It has clean air, a peaceful atmosphere, pleasant accommodations and a great choice of restaurants. Antigua is a favorite place to visit, although nowadays it is a bit removed from traditional Guatemalan culture due to its old charm, with cobbled streets, colonial houses and beautiful surroundings. Antigua is in a valley close to the Acatenango volcano. Antigua Guatemala is a beautiful city, and I invite you to visite my city. AntiguaGuatemala.com
