Destinations to Go:
France :Beuvron -en-Auge
The population of Beuvron has fallen over the last sixty years, as young people have moved away to the towns and cities in search of work. As a result, the population of the village is getting older and there are increasingly fewer children in the village.
Fortunately, Beuvron is registered as one of the most beautiful villages in France, so the villagers are encouraging tourism as much as possible. More families are now offering bed-and-breakfast accommodation in their homes, and there are already numerous craft shops, a cafe, bar, two restaurants, a creperie and picturesque houses, which attract lots of tourists to the village each year.
Much of Mexico is dry, and rain is eagerly awaited. More rain falls in the tropical south than in the north. The land in northern Mexico is arid because it lies in the so-called horse latitudes – belts of calm air where few rain clouds form. Further south, mountains near the Atlantic and Pacific coasts receive heavy rainfall, particularly on slopes facing wet, sea-borne winds. Less rain falls inland and on sheltered mountain slopes. Some parts of eastern and southern Mexico experience the opposite problem to that of the north – too much rain falls. Wild plants grow so well that farmers have to hack down growth to plant their crops. The rainforests in the far south have a long rainy season in summer, when showers fall every afternoon.
Republic of Cuba
The independent Republic of Cuba formed in 1902. The United States only handed over power to the new Cuban government after it agreed to give the Americans the right to build a naval base at Guantanamo Bay. Cuba prospered from sugar and American tourism in the early 1900s. However, Cuban leaders became corrupt.
Cuban president Fulgencio Batista (1901-1973) became a brutal dictator in the 1950s. Forces led by Fidel Castro invaded Cuba from Mexico in 1956 to fight Batista. The invasion failed, but Fidel Castro, his brother Raul, and Che Guevara escaped and hid in the mountains.They organized sneak attacks against Batista’s forces. When Batista fled in 1959, Fidel Castro took over.
Cuba is an amazing holiday place to visit for Brits. However it is not much popular because of the cost of long-haul flights.
A Little bit France
The French capital, Paris, has a population of 11 million. It is France’s largest city and its main cultural and business centre. Other major cities include Lyon, Marseille, Lille and Bordeaux. France is a world leader in industry, famous for its cars, aeroplanes and nuclear power. But it is perhaps better known for its glamorous fashion and perfume, its delicious wine, cheese and, of course, its bubbly champagne.

South Asia : MALDIVES & SRI-LANKA
South Asia has many islands, including two island nations, Sri Lanka and Maldives. Sri Lanka lies off the southeastern tip of India and is about 64,750 square kilometres (25,000 square miles). The country was called Ceylon until 1972; the name Sri Lanka means ‘resplendent island’ in the Sinhalese language. Sri Lanka has been home to Buddhists and Hindus for many centuries, and during that time there have been violent struggles for power. When Sri Lanka was hit by a tsunami in 2004, the two groups put their differences aside and worked together to help the people. Once the crisis was over, however, the two sides began fighting again. The people of Sri Lanka have an excellent railway system that connects the island’s major cities. They also have of one of the best educational systems in South Asia. Ninety-six percent of Sri Lankans are literate, by far the highest rate in the region. In comparison, India’s literacy rate is just 60 percent.
