Venezuela - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Imagine a beautiful place. This place is the most beautiful place you've ever seen. What do you see? Do you see pretty land? Lots of trees? What about animals? Are there animals in your beautiful place? Imagine there is a really long river, a huge lake, the tallest waterfall in the world, and the longest snake in the world in this beautiful place. The place you're imagining is Venezuela.
 
2     Venezuela is a beautiful country in South America. It is on South America's northern shore, between Brazil, Guyana, and Colombia. It has many different kinds of land. Venezuela has low, grassy plains and very high mountains. It is usually warm in Venezuela. This is because of Venezuela's location near the equator. The equator is an imaginary line all the way around the earth halfway between the north and south poles. Places near the equator are some of the hottest places on earth.
 
3     Do you like very high places? Many people are afraid of high places. Venezuela has the tallest waterfall in the world. It's known as Angel Falls. It is located deep in one of Venezuela's jungles. Angel Falls is named after the American who found the falls in 1937. His name was Jimmie Angel. He was a pilot who was looking for gold in the area. Instead, he found a waterfall that looked "a mile high" to him.
