Jamaica🇯🇲

Jamaica was the first country to produce rum and to commercialize it. Since this is their national drink it’s worth mentioning that they have the most rum bars per square mile, however, most of these bars are not registered with the government. They also have a special, very strong rum known as Jancrow batty. This is only served on the black market because it’s illegally. Where does your favorite drink come from?Happy Friday!🍹🌎

México 🇲🇽 Even though the Giza pyramids are more famous, the Great Pyramid of Cholula is the largest of them all. With a base of 450 by 450 meters (1,480 by 1,480 ft) and roughly 66 meters (217 ft) tall, it has a volume of astonishing 4.45 million cubic meters! That’s one big pyramid. However, we should mention, it’s mostly covered by layers of dirt and therefore it can pass as a regular hill. On top sits the church of Our Lady of Remedies and not much far away the great Popocatépetl active volcano! What a great combo!🗻🌎 •
