Chile was next on Norman's trot list

Chile was next on Norman's trot list. Unbelievably thin and unreasonably long, Chile stretches from the belly of South America to its foot, reaching from the driest desert on earth to the vast southern glacial fields. Norman was looking forward to experiencing the diverse landscape which stretches over 4,300km, filled with valleys, volcanoes, ancient forests, clear rivers, massive glaciers and fjords. Norman took this opportunity to trek the Andes. When he reached the top he was welcomed by a full 360 degree view of Chile at its finest.

Norman trotted into Brazil and was excited to visit this country as he had never been there before. First Norman stopped to see the famous statue of Christ the Redeemer, which stands high up in the city of Rio. Thousands of tourists travel to see this world famous statue each year. It is truly  a spectacular sight. Norman was surprised to find out that the statue had been hit by lightening several times. Afterwards Norman cantered over to look at the Maracanã, officially called Estádio Mário Filho stadium where the 2014 Soccer World Cup is taking place this summer.

Norman discovers Ecuadorian Agriculture!

Norman’s next stop on his global trot was Ecuador, and he was excited to see some volcanoes! Norman cantered up Cotopaxi, and was very tired when he reached the top. The volcano is the second highest summit in Ecuador and it reaches a height of 5,897m. This was a lot of exercise, even for Norman! As he looked at the amazing view from the top of the volcano, he was quite excited and a bit scared to learn that Cotopaxi is one of the most active volcanoes in the entire world! Oh dear, thought Norman, I need to get to the bottom before this volcano erupts!
