  1. 1. So you can’t Decide Where to go? S o you can’t decide where to go? Well I am going to help you. I have researched two locations and I will present them to you now. Compare them and tell me which one you think you might go to. Panama vs. Tokyo
  2. 2. Climate in <ul><li>The daytime average climate per year in Panama is 32˚C. The night time average is 21˚ C. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What do I Wear in Panama? <ul><li>Although in Panama it is very hot, men do not wear shorts like you will see here in Switzerland but loose, floppy T-shirts and jeans. You only need sweaters if you are in the highlands. It does rain in Panama and jackets are essential. Women wear sun dresses. They do not wear skirts. They also wear loose T-shirts. You can wear a suit to work. This is because it is really hot in panama and you want some loose wear. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How are Homes Built? <ul><li>In Panama look for a house with a light colored roof. Light colored roofs reflect the sun and keep the house cool. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Transportation in Panama <ul><li>In Panama there is very good transportation. The same as here in Switzerland, in fact (though if you will have a car I recommend one with light colors and a big air conditioner) . </li></ul>
  6. 6. Sport’s and Activity’s <ul><li>Sports in panama are not a problem pretty m (though I would recommend less sweaty sports) and activity’s are easy to find. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Climate in <ul><li>In Tokyo it is hot (but it rains a lot). The lowest average temperature is 16˚C and the highest temperature is always changing and is unknown. </li></ul>
  8. 8. What to Wear in Tokyo <ul><li>These days people in Tokyo wear western style clothes. On traditional occasions people wear one of the most traditional clothes called Kimonos (the most formal kimono is called Uchikake) and a sort of wooden sandal which is worn with the kimono and it is called a Zori sandal. </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Traditional Japanese House <ul><li>The traditional Japanese house is made of bamboo, bendable wood, straw and paper. This is because the Japanese have a lot of trees. They are made of bendable wood because there are quiet a lot of earthquakes in Japan and the houses will not break (and even if they would, the roof is made of paper so nobody will die if the roof caves in) but move with the earth. The floors are covered by Tanami which are all different sizes according to the size of a person. They are always a lot bigger than the person. A traditional house does not have windows, but they have sliding panels which are not fixed things and you can move them from side to side and up and down, but not both. Japanese houses are built on stilts for two reasons. One is because if the ground is wet the wood will rot. The other reason is o that the wind can blow under the house and dry the ground. In Tokyo the roofs have wood shingles or clay tiles. This is because in the parts of Japan where it does not rain as much they use straw but in Tokyo it rains to much for that and the straw would rot so they use wood shingles and clay tiles. They use this because the Japanese use their environment and what they have. There put decoratively patterned rocks to keep the tiles/singes from flying away. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Transportation in Tokyo <ul><li>In Tokyo the travel lines are quick and loyal, but there are no trams. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Leisure activities in Tokyo <ul><li>There are so many fun things in Tokyo you will not believe your eyes when you see all the fun!! </li></ul>
