Vacations around the world

Vacation time is a very important part in the life of all people in the world.
People from different cultures spend their vacations in different ways. The
number of vacation days ranges from 10 to 30, being the Europeans such as
Germans, French and Swede the luckiest for having 30 days of vacations; the
Latin American countries with a big number of vacation days are Brazil, Panama
and Peru with 25 days. The unluckiest country is China having just 10 days and
being vacations not mandatory. Taking into account this aspect, people can
