I solved the exercise. Thanks!

i guess in my city almost everyday is sunny. i live in cancun MX and we have beautiful beaches and the ruins of the mayas, a lot of fauna and so many things you can do to explore all the landscape we have. there're a lot of natural parks to visit and a incredibly sea food and you're going to have an amaizing experience.

Hello there. Firstly there are amazing scenes of clip . Secondly I would like to ask about if there is difference between stunning and picturesque. Eventually thank you for your kindness.

Hello Alhussien,

The best way to find the answer to vocabulary questions like this one is to use the Cambridge Dictionaries Online tool on the right of the page. Just type the word into the search box and click 'Look it up!' to get a definition, examples, grammatical and pronunciation information and more. It's a great tool.
