Place: Physical and Human Characteristics
Every place has a personality. And, just like people, places may have a lot in common, but no two are exactly alike.

What makes a place special? What are the physical and human characteristics of your hometown? Is the soil sandy or rocky? Is the temperature warm or is it cold? Did important historical events occur there? Is it near a river or lake? What physical characteristics are most important or unique?
