Good bye, Pastoruri

Definitely, global warming is taking on the taxes they owed him a long time: the expensive price of mistreatment of nature. In cases occur worldwide extraordinarily incredible disappearing glaciers, rising level of water in the ocean, changes in temperature, the extinction of many animals, examples that could well be the prediction of the movie "The Day After Tomorrow "(" The Day After Tomorrow "). Peru is no exception. We are experiencing climate change on a large scale, and support my statement with the disappearance of the famous snowy Pastoruri, located in the department of Ancash, north of Lima. It hurts a lot not being able to appreciate this natural monument when it was at its maximum splendor, when he was an important source of tourism in Peru. At present, there are remnants of ice and frost that are gradually melting. In the picture you can see the decline of the peak Pastoruri at an interval of 6 years. (2001 to 2007). Just as the Pastoruri, Mount Huascaran also suffering the ravages of nature and can have the same fate as the earlier mentioned. In truth, I am very sorry, but this is no time to mourn and mourn, but to take concrete action to avoid other snowcaps that of Peru and the world falling to pieces. They can publish their proposals and all are welcome.

Knows Huaral Valley!

What would my country if he does not have such beautiful cities like mine: the province of Huaral. As you can see on the map, lies north of the Peruvian capital, with Huaura, Junin and Lima and surrounding territories. Its climate is very humid and semi-warm in the Coast, with temperatures around 30 degrees C in summer and to fluctuate between 15.9 and 19.9 ° C ° C in winter. In winter seasons can have fog, mostly in the evenings. In the summer radiates throughout the valley, tempting people to cool off the beaches in the district of Chancay, which stresses its imposing castle. Huaral has nothing to envy to other departments of our country, because it has many archaeological remains dating from the time pre-Inca and Inca. We have the ruins of Rupac, Chiprac, Añay, among others, all interesting, that want to photograph (if you encourage visit Huaral, carries a camera high-capacity memory). Deleitarte come and fly with their dazzling scenery and its people so warm. There you may win!

The ozone layer and its importance.

What is the ozone layer?Easy; it is thecover air that surrounds the Earth and protects it from the ultra-violet rayses that radiate from the sun. It's composed by three oxygen molecules (O3) and it is a natural form in the stratosphere.
Stratospheric ozone forms by action of the ultraviolet radiation, that dissociates molecular oxygen molecules (O2) in two atoms, which are highly reactive, being able to react these with another molecule of O2 being formed ozone. Stratospheric ozone is destroyed as well by action of the own ultraviolet radiation, since the radiation with smaller wavelength of 290 nm causes that an atom oxygen of the ozone molecule is come off. A dynamic balance in which ozone forms and destroys, being consumed of this form most of the radiation of smaller wavelength of 290 forms therefore sayings nm. Thus, ozone acts as a filter that does not let pass this detrimental radiation until the surface and the life in the Earth. All Earth component has its mission in the harmony of our nature; in this case, the ozone that covers the Earth, protects to us of the dangerous and detrimental solar radiations that, in other planets, inposibilita the life existence on the surface. We would be living in this planet if the ozone layer did not exist?

When a tree dies…

During thousands of years, the humans have more and more been playing an important role in the deforestation. Through history, an empire after another one has cut forests to construct to their boats and houses, and like fuel. Once they have been devastated, those forests have not recovered in thousand years or more, and some never will recover -- like in parts of the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Great Britain. The global deforestation has accelerated itself dramatically in recent decades. The tropical forests of South America and the Southeast of Asia are being cut and being burned to an alarming rate for agricultural uses, as much in small as in great scale, from enormous plantations of oil palm to the agriculture of subsistence of “tomb and burns”. The fires that begin frequently for these intentions burn outside control. The call “Mist” in the Southeast of Asia during 1997 and other years was the forest fire result extensive that burned without control in the forests affected by the drought. The deforestation idea creates images of naked areas. By this, when somebody sees an area aerial photography “highly deforested” in parts of the tropical, they are surprised when seeing that still they are left many trees there. In fact, they do not seem to be deforested. The reason of it is that at least the 10 percent of the land is covered by the glasses of the trees; if the percentage of forest falls below the 10 percent, the tropical areas are considered deforested.But that exists some trees do not mean that the forest has not suffered damages. Any reduction of the forest is a problem for its ecosystem. The deforestation happens when the forests are turned farms for foods or cultures commercial or used to raise cattle. Also the cutting of trees for commercial use or fuel takes to the destruction of the forests. The deforestation does not have to only do with the loss of trees.
Also it has a great impact on the atmosphere. Many living creatures depend on the trees reason why, when the trees disappear, also the animals disappear (diminished biodiversity). Potentially valuable medicines and materials are lost, just like the clean water and the air. They undergo the indígeneas people and, possibly, also the national economies. The future of the people and the forests they are interconnected.

Old conquerors at the Actually.

Our country this plenty of surprises. I could verify in a promotion trip, in the 2004.Estadía in that zone was very pleasant for me, mainly when experimenting the calidez of its people (without counting its climate, that also he is warm and generally tropical). In that earth, Pozuzo, lives the descendants on the old conquerors south wind-Germans who arrived from Europe with aspirations of a better future.That district counts on a tourist wealth very differentiated from the rest of the country, the hospitality of its people, her typical food, its dances and their music; in addition it counts on an ample range of attractive natural such as: Cataracts, beautiful landscapes, fauna and wild flora, natural forests, among others, plus the tranquillity and the public security whereupon are counted, allowed the visitor to be able to enjoy one estadía placentera and very safe, besides to have a total contact with healthful and very cosy environment.Perhaps what it made an impression to me more was that they conserve almost intact his European customs, interlaced with the Peruvian. They are very treatable and you feel like in house. I recommend to you to visit Pozuzo, is here to the flank of Lima, in Hill of pasco. We go!

The Peruvian forest

Our country is so rich of culture that any foreign nation already wanted to have.
Unfortunately the Peruvian does not feel the same. what do you say?The Peruvian forest is one of the richest regions of our territory, cultural and naturally speaking, since it has one long list of traditions, typical plates and many interesting activities more.- ay! , the forest, if I go,… will prick the mosquitos to me! - a tramp exclaims.- that disgust! , as you can eat those worms…, guacala! - another one follows.In short, there are many cases more than always I hear in some social circles. To say that means to repudiate the customs of a part of ours cultural I.
Comparing, it would be because Italy satiated of his spaguetti, or that Egypt wanted to destroy its pyramids because “it hinders”. (there are cases in Peru here)Here I show some photos to them that describe better the cultural wealth of our Peruvian forest. You are proud of your country? why?
