The Good part in Nergos is that, we have the most friendly and approachable people that can always smile even if it's experiencing/having hard-times and difficult situations in life, but the thing we need to focus is that we need to gain other countries loyalty and not to ignore and delay their needs, in terms of amenities we must further improve this and working it with a good output, somehow it can it can give us more opportunities to rebuild and create better and wise community.
-I Love Nergos-

I love geography, and today I learned something new. I\'d been told many years ago about there being an island named Negros, but having never located it on a map, I always thought it was off the coast of Africa. Interesting facts about the island and it\'s people. I\'ll have to put it on my bucket list as a place to visit.
