I chose the Philippines as my eastern hemisphere location. I found a round trip leaving the 15th of March returning on the 5th of April for $969.85. I found a place called the L Fisher Hotel for $28 a night $588 total for 3 weeks. I chose the Philippines because English is the national language so I feel like that will make things easier. It is said that many can find meals for $3 in the Philippines. $100 will be for food.
I chose Mexico as my western hemisphere location. I found a round trip leaving the 15th of March returning on the 5th of April for $656. I found a hotel in Mexico City for $31 night $979 for 3 weeks. I chose Mexico because I felt like it would be more bang for your buck because it is so close to the United states already. Food will be around 150-200 dollars for 3 weeks on 100-peso meals.
Mexico is the lowest ranked country in central America for safety. Mexico has an overall 140 safest country rating. I feel the cartel has something to do with Mexico being so dangerous. The Philippines is the second more dangerous country in Asia with a 137 safest country. The Philippines is known for kidnapping and human trafficking. The two countries I chose are very dangerous and some of the lowest ranked in their respective areas. Being more dangerous might be a reason why they are so cheap. The United States is the 121st safest country. The United States being 121 makes me feel a little better about Mexico and the Philippines rankings. Iceland is the safest country followed by New Zealand.
"You'll learn far more than you ever did at a university.
He is wrong a good class can teach you about much more than a subject. It takes a good teacher and the right group of people and something special can happen. When classes are not taken seriously by teachers it can give off the image that this statement is true. It is important that we weed out the teachers that do not put in effort so that school can remain the place to gain knowledge.
