    Tourism is still booming as one of the largest industries around the world. It boosts the economic growth of a country while providing potential job creation for residents. For instance, by estimating to serve approximately about 15.6 million foreign tourists and about 80 million domestic travelers, Vietnam generate receives 620 trillion VND (26.66 billion USD) in tourism and a rise of more than 25 thousand employees per years.
    From another angle, tourism can also have many negative impacts on the quality of life. One of them is that it leads to the overcrowding on such places as Barcelona, Venice and Spain. Venice, a city of 60 000 people, welcomes nearly 30 million visitors a year, that 76000 tourists a day. Spain welcomed over 82 million travelers in 2017 with 9 million visiting Barcelona alone. Even, CNN 10 reported on 28 of May, there were a significant rise in the number of hiker climbing Mount Everest, which led to traffic jams on the climbing path.

    Coffee

    (07:11:30 AM 16/04/2014)

     Are you coffee drinker?

    How do you take your coffee? Do you take it black, or do you like to add milk or sugarto it? Do you prefer skim milk (milk with no fat), whole milkcream, or half-and-half (half milk, half cream)?

    Drip coffee is popular in the U.S. You brew drip coffee in a coffee machine that uses paper filters (or sometimes wire mesh filters). In other countries, espresso (a stronger drink made with a special machine) is more popular.

    coffee afficionado is someone who's really into finding the best coffee possible. If you're an afficionado, you might do things like buying whole beans and  grinding the beans yourself. You might only buy fair trade beans, which means that the farmers who grew them were treated fairly. You'll also want to pay attention to when the beans wereroasted and how light or dark the roast is.

    When you drink coffee every day, you develop a caffeine habit. You drink it to get your caffeine fix. A lot of people say that they can't function until they've had their morning coffee. If you want the tast of coffee, but don't want to get wired up (the feeling that you get from drinking a lot of caffeine), you can drink decaf instead of regular caffeinatedcoffee.

    For a lot of people, going out to a coffee shop is part of the fun of drinking coffee. Thebarista (a coffee-making specialist) can make you an iced coffee or espresso-based drinks like a cappuccino, which uses foamed milk, or a latté, which uses regular heatedmilk.
