Mundo river, Riopar
Spain

Mundo es un río español, principal afluente del río Segura que nace en la sierra manchega del Calar del Mundo, en la comarca de Sierra de Alcaraz (Albacete). Etimológicamente, "Mundo" no procede del sustantivo referente a "mundo" (del lat. mundus), sino del adjetivo "mundo" (lat. mundo), antónimo de "inmundo": "límpio, lavado, claro..".

El geógrafo andalusí Al-Zuhri recoge la más que posible denominación del actual río Mundo como Mīšūnīš, puesto que la entonces alquería que era entonces la localidad de Mesones en el municipio de Molinicos le daría nombre al río al ser la primera localidad atravesada por él.

Su nacimiento se encuentra en un lugar turístico llamado Los Chorros del río Mundo al que acuden muchas personas para ver sus cataratas y su profunda cueva (se conocen más de 32 km), desde donde se precipitan los chorros por un farallón de más de 300 m de altura. El volumen de agua de las cataratas es muy variable y puede ser escaso en tiempo de sequía. Pero el fenómeno es singular, debido a que está conectado con un acuífero de tipo kárstico, que produce estas bruscas variaciones estacionales, denominadas también, surgencias en "Trop plein". La mejor época para visitarlas es la primavera, en las fechas cuando se produce espontáneamente una explosión extraordinaria de surgencia de agua; fenómeno kárstico curioso y popularmente conocido en la zona como el "Reventón".

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
