FC: My Google Earth Travels by Ms. Frachetti

1: My Passport Destinations: 1. Great Sphynx of Giza Located in the Valley of the Kings, Cairo, Egypt 2. Great Wall of China Located throughout Liaoning, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Sichuan, Jilin, Shandong, Hubei, Hunan, and Gansu provinces in China 3. Angkor Wat Located in Angkor, Cambodia

3: Dear Dr. Lensington: What a fantastic time I had in Costa Rica, Central America. I found this amazing volcano located in the Central Highlands. The Irazú Volcano is the tallest volcano in the country, reaching a height of over 11,000 feet and has several active craters. The smallest crater, called Diego de la Haya, drops 300 ft beneath the surface. Its mineral-rich lake can transform in color, between emerald-green and crimson-red. The water in the lake has a very high level of acid, causing it to change color and gurgle. I wouldn't want to take a swim in the lake, but it sure was interesting to learn about Irazu Volcano.

5: Dr. Lensington: Wow, the Middle East is full of amazing sites. Here I am at Burj Khalifa, standing in front of the tallest man-made structure in the world. This building is an impressive 2,717 feet. Though it is difficult to see the actual building itself on Google Earth, the monstrous shadow that it casts is plainly visible. The building currently holds 14 world records, including the tallest man-made structure, the world’s fastest elevator (40 mph), and the worlds highest swimming pool (on the 76th floor). The cost was $1.5 billion (U.S.). WHEW!

6: Our bags are full.
