Additionally, please help us to correct, update or complete information. Particularly interesting would be stories that could fit into Special Information, series of pictures (at least ten, with approximate date of when picture was taken, short text to explain what is shown, and what kind of copyright remark you want to have), or additions to the cultural entries (like National Parks, Large Museums, Opera Halls, etc.). Please send email with attachments if applicable to office@global-geography.org and mention that the stuff is for Global-Geography. Thanks!
