What is the capital of this country?
Where is such and such a country?
This is what we think of when we think of geography.
In fact, geography covers not just countries and cities, but the structure of our planet as well.
Mountains and rivers, plains and forests, volcanoes and clouds are all part of geography.
How well we know the world we live in, not just our own country, determines how knowledgeable we are about geography.
The structure of the land, the rock formations etc. are of equal importance to geographies as is which countries are where.
Our recent concern about the environment has stimulated people’s interest in it.
Weather patterns and their changes are all part of it.
With 2/3 of the world covered in water, the study of the seas, oceans and rivers is as important as the study of land masses.
It is interesting to look at old books and maps of the world and to see how things have changed.
Countries change their names and borders just as nature changes our environment.
The effect of political influences changes the geography of our world too.
Therefore, we can see that geography like language is not static.
So, if we want keep informed, we must constantly watch the changes.
