Students writing reports on foreign countries will find the resources in this week’s Tip useful.  Most all general descriptive facts are covered–even on smaller bodies.  These resources are also useful for anyone travelling to a foreign land who is interested in understanding the historical background, ethnic make-up, geographical characteristics economy, and many other attributes of that place.  Our world is shrinking- since we can go almost anywhere these days- but with these resources, even armchair travelers can explore faraway places!
