Latin America

This section is evolving—and in some ways narrowing—as we do more work on it. It was originally intended to be a Latin American culture category and included material from Mexico to the Caribbean Islands to Central and South America. Each of these regions are getting their own sections, and we'll gradually add all independent countries as we fill out titles that fit. In the meantime, we're relying heavily on sites like Wikipedia and WorldAtlas for fleshing out info.
