At El Caracol in Texcoco
Mexico

The Caracol was formed by the sediment of the Lago de Texcoco. It is called el caracol (the snail) for its unusual spiral shape, approximately 3,200m in diameter. It was once used for the solar evaporation of water, to obtain sodium salts. It currently supplies water for industrial uses to the nearby regions, including parts of Mexico City.

More About North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III. From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities.
