Organization Practice #4
1) Chile borders Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru.
2) Located in western South America, Chile is a long, narrow piece of land
4270 km. long and 190 km. wide. 3) Chile exports copper to many countries.
4) The main source of Chile’s income is from copper. 5) This makes the
country very dependent upon changes in the world price of copper.
6) Its terrain is mountainous.
1) The risky hours are from 6:00 p.m. straight through
until dawn. 2) Walking through the jungles of Brazil is very dangerous
at certain hours of the day. 3) Alligators that can chew off one’s
foot, and deadly black widow spiders also live in the jungles of Brazil.
4) One swift, stinging snake bite can cause paralyzation, sudden death,
convulsions, or severe vomiting. 5) The most feared of the venomous
snakes lurking constantly in the jungle are the Diamond Garf, the Coral,
and the Patoco.
1) Leaving the coast and its surrounding desert terrain,
we headed into the Andes. 2) They are the second largest mountain
range in the world. 3) Afterwards, we drove south down the Pan-American
Highway, which parallels the ocean. 4) We walked along one of its
many sandy, uninhabited beaches, leaving behind a trail of footprints.
5) The cold sea was turbulent that day and its surf pounded the shore.
6) We didn't dare enter its waters. 7) The unpaved mountain roads
were narrow and winding and filled with hairpin turns. 8) For hours
we climbed higher and higher, until we reached the pampa, a wide
desolate plain, from which we could see the whole valley. 9) We began our
trip in Lima, Peru.
