Creciendo en Mexico aprendi que existen 5 continentes en el mundo, y que yo vivia en America. Luego en los EE.UU. aprendi que hay 7 continentes en el mundo y que ellos son America. En este pais con tanta diversidad continuamente le pregunto a la gente que voy conociendo sobre los continentes del mundo, y estoy sorprendido; segun entendi para los franceces son 5 y para los espanoles 7? Prozadictos del mundo... que opinan?

Your colleagues are having a bit of a joke. Welcome!



More territory in dispute



Read:

US Secretary of State Colin Powell confirmed today that an agreement had been reached between Spain and Morocco that would return the island of Perejil, known as Leila to Moroccan, to its status quo of pre-July 11, that is, before 12 Moroccan soldiers seized the island.



Spain has argued that for the past 40 years an agreement has prevented either country from formally occupying the Perejil island. Morocco broke the agreement on July 11 when it sent 12 soldiers on the island and hoisted two Moroccan flags. This was seen as an act of aggression by Spain, which claims it has had territorial rights over the island since 1668. Spain on July 17 recaptured the island from Morocco to restore its \"territorial integrity\". The island, which measures 13.5 hectares (33 acres), is tiny, triangular in shape and very rocky. It is located just about 200 metres off the Moroccan coast within Morocco\'s national waters. Morocco disputes Spain\'s claim on historical grounds, arguing that the island was liberated from the Spanish protectorate in 1956 and adding that it was not the first time that Morocco conducted such military exercises on the island, which is customarily used by Moroccan farmers for farming and cattle-breeding activities. The rocky island, for the most part, has remained inhabited only by goats.

Sorry, Rolando Aug 9, 2002

también son cinco continentes, América es uno solo, se los confirma una americana de suramérica [¿dónde queda ese país? ]. ¿Por qué creen que solamente hay cinco anillos en la bandera de los juegos olímpicos?
