Guess the country #12

One aspect of geography is to learn about the many nations that exist around Earth.  In fact, some studies suggest that understanding where countries are makes us feel more diplomatic.

From the seven continents to the myriad of cultures comprised on each one, geography links us all together. Our cultures often develop as a response to the physical geography of the world around us, and to the different kinds of people we have access to. Now, with the internet, we can interact with anyone with just the click of a button.

Understanding a country’s culture is a sign of respect. It also helps to foster effective communication, a vital factor in business success. … Values and attributes such as frugality, trust and endurance may be viewed differently in other countries

When students—or executives—get to know and understand different cultures, they realize that there is more than one way of thinking and that no one way is better than another. Cross-cultural learning helps them become better employees, negotiators, leaders, and international citizens. And with this pandemic the best time for learning and no better way to learn than through the power of poems.

The sea was sapphire coloured, and the sky
Burned like a heated opal through the air;
We hoisted sail; the wind was blowing fair
For the blue lands that to the eastward lie.
From the steep prow, I marked with quickening eye
Zakynthos, every olive grove and creek,
Ithaca's cliff, Lycaon's snowy peak,
And all the flower-strewn hills of Arcady.

My name is Zeus.
And I’m God of the sky. 
When you hear my thunder,
I’m right nearby. 

Aristotle instructed in Athens,
Where culture and politics happen.
The origins of democratic rule,
A centre of philosophy and school
Herkules halt from the legends of Greece.
Education is a top priority,
So they established an academy.
Sparta fought Athens, allies not afar.
They fought in the Peloponnesian war.
