    The mention of Andes attracts my interest. When I was in grade school, the Amazon and the Andes are big topics because of their unique culture and natural resources. Particularly the Andes mountains, it is surprising to know that it has snow or ice (I hope I am correct on this). I may not be qualified to go on a mountain tour but a visit by the foothills will suffice especially if there are natives wearing their traditional attire even only for the camera. Yeah, the coffee plantation is also a must-see. Am I missing something? Is there a tea plantation or is that in Sri Lanka?

    A friend of mine did a big trip of South America and she loved Bolivia. Have you seen the Bolivian Salt Flats?


    To me they just look incredible. I feel like they would have to be on my must see list if I ever had the chance to go there.

    I also have heard great things from a lot of people about Chile.

    There is Iguazu Falls which looks really beautiful. It's on the Argentina-Brazil border. So you can see the falls either from Brazil if you were visiting Brazil or from Argentina if that's where you are.

    Take a look:

    I have always wanted to visit the Indian communities that live in the Amazon forest. I would like to learn more about their traditions and how they cope with life in the forest. I saw a photo of more than 3men carrying a python which was more than six metres long - I wish I could experience that.
