Just came across this article and thought it was worth sharing.

Enya's Castle Invaded by Stalkers (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/4305058.stm)

Police in Dublin are investigating reports that a stalker broke into Enya's mansion, it has emerged.
He tied up a maid, then spent two hours looking for Enya in her castle in the plush Dublin suburb of Killiney. The singer hid in a panic room.


According to the Sunday Times Rich List, Enya is the joint 78th richest person in Ireland with an estimated fortune of 100m euros (£70m).

Panic Room?

£70million?

If we aren't joking...

It's also a river in south america, hence orinoco flow.

Oooh. in fact the Orinoco river system is the 3rd biggest in the world.

We are certainly not joking. So, why would some Irish songbird sing about a river in South America? Rhetorical (if you like).

And, where in South America is this river?

Mainly Venezuala but also the borders of Brazil, Columbia. The river basin is about a million square kilometers (thanks google)

Everybody should know about this.........

The Orinoco river system is the third largest in the world, originating along the southern borders of Venezuela and Brazil, in the state of Amazonas. The Orinoco river basin is huge, covering more than one million square kilometers. The name Orinoco is derived from Guarauno words meaning “a place to paddle”—i.e., a navigable place.

It flows west, next north, creating the border with Colombia, and then turns east and bisects Venezuela on its way to the Atlantic. North of the Orinoco are the vast, grassy plains called llanos. To the south of the river is almost half of Venezuela's territory. Huge tropical forest areas cover the southwestern portion part, and large portions are still virtually inaccessible. The Guiana Highlands, also known as the Guyana Shield, covers the remainder. The Guyana Shield is composed of pre-Cambriam rock, up to 2.5 billion years old, and some of the oldest on the continent. Here are the tepuys, stone plateaux rearing out of the jungle floor. The most famous tepuys are Roraima and Auyantepui, from which Angel Falls descend.

Over 200 rivers are tributaries to the mighty Orinoco which extends 1290 mi (2150 km) from source to delta. During the rainy season, the river reaches a width of 13 mi (22 km) at San Rafael de Barrancas and a depth of 330 ft (100 m). (see map) 1000 mi (1670 km) of the Orinoco are navigable, and about 341 of those can be used for sailing large ships.

And if they don't know all that they should at least know that the Orinoco is one of the world's largest rivers. ;)

Its clearly a huge hole in the Geography syllabus. I studied Geography to degree level (very badly towards the end admittedly) but the Great Orinoco was never mentioned.

Although admittedly Geography at school was quite a sparse subject, much more to do with a few examples of typical features/situations with a case study than learning about the world etc.
