lasted only 45 minutes, but we have managed to make a delightful trip and have
been to many gorgeous sights all over the world. The main idea I want you to
remember is that each country has its own wonders. But can such wonders belong
only to one country? It seems they should be the whole world’s possessions. Can
the world we live in be somebody’s property? No, it’s unique, it’s our home,

man-made. Life is the greatest gift and the most incredible wonder our planet
gives us. I want you to keep it in mind and be respectful, caring and merciful people!
