You’ve been asking for information about particular countries and regions. Now you’ve got it. National Geographic has created People and Places, a brand-new, huge supersite with photos, maps, and info on every country in the world. Need to know the average life expectancy in Japan? (It’s 81.) Wonder what forms the border between Argentina and Chile? (The Andes.) And just how old are the Pyramids of Giza? (About 4,500 years.) Start exploring—and when you come up for air, tell us what you think in the comments.
