Sorry for posting so late, but I have been really busy with school and real life.

So, in this expo Fairview Pavillion is going to expose the modern and "glass" age of the country. Bruxelas and Nova Cidade metropolitan area is one of the most important of Europe because of its seaport, one of the main seaports of Europe, where about 56% of the products which come from America and Africa to Europe passes by it.

As I told last week, today I am going to present the most beautiful city of O Norte, Mentapi. Mentapi is not a huge city but is not also a small one. Mentapi has around 15,000 and it is located just in the base of the mountains of the north. Mentapi was built around 1580 when the Spanish decided to invade Fairview and Portugal. That is the reason that the city is surrounded by water channels, in order to prevent or difficult the attacks. Because of the snow in the winter, the population decided not to follow a mediterranean architeture at all but also a mix of nort european and alps architeture. Mentapi will be the host city of the AIN Snow Event, this year.
