    Wow! Mexico is beautiful! I really like the picture of Chichén Itzá. I never really knew how many natural reserves there were. If only Goodland had such awsome places like that! =]

    There are beautiful places in Mexico, this are a few of them, but you can go to many beautiful places here in Mexico and we have many types of areas like desert, beaches, forest, mountains, rivers, etc. What I like most is the desert in Mexico, it give me a feeling of tranquility. I would like to know more about Goodland.

    Wow! The picture of the Chichén Itzá looks so beautiful!! Goodland is a very small town in Kansas with a population of about 5,000 people. We’re going through a drought right now so there are no lakes or rivers anywhere.

    I think it would be awesome to go see all of those places. It’s weird that there is no sound in Zona del Silencio.
