Peru and Ecuador

We just learned about the country of Chile and Bolivia.

Two more countries to learn about in South America: Peru and Ecuador.

Peru is on the Western coast of South America.
The largest river in the world, the Amazon River runs through the middle of this country.

Ecuador is just North of Peru.
It has some old ruins from when the Incas lived there before the Spanish took over.

Also interesting about Ecuador is that they use the same type of money as the United States.
Most other countries have their own currency like pesos, reals or euros,
but Ecuador uses the US dollar as their money.
