Remedial Geography

For those of you who didn't know, I casually dropped AP Econ earlier this semester in hopes to receive an open hour. Unfortunately, I got placed in (essentially...) a remedial geography class. (The first day of class we received only one question as homework. It was a piece of paper with the country of China and a line pointing to it. The question asked, 'What continent is this?')

But behold! All has gone well...the last few days we have been studying ITALY. So, I have decided to fill in our loyal viewers/readers with useless facts about Italy. Enjoy.



Italy...home to two microstates: Vatican City and San Marino.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa
The Colosseum
The Forum
Cities:
Rome...the Mecca of Catholicism
Genoa...home to Christopher Colombus
Venice...sheer beauty
Turin (Torino!) The Detroit of Italy
Florence, home to the Renaissance
Poverty-Stricken Naples!
...and the greatest city in the world! Milan! (MILANO!) God bless all you Italians! 4,183,000 residents, the transportation and banking center of Italy...and home to the best dang Italians period.

Thanks to Italy, we have pasta.
It's the birthplace of opera...a true American pastime.

Lo! Let us not forget such famous Italians as Michelangelo, Raphael, Da Vinci...Sir Alex...Fayna! Where would the world be without Italy.

I guess, despite it all, Geography is worth something in my life. Next Mustache Spring Break Tour 2007: MILANO!

"Poverty Stricken Napeles!"

That's got to be the best thing I read today. I wonder if it says that on their brochures?

That should be Barrows' motto. I'd build them a billboard.
