Standard 5: I believe the borderlands of US and Mexico is a formal region. A formal region is something more set in stone, that say the government puts in place. The US/Mexico border is very set in stone. There is even fencing in alot of areas to depict this. The formal region seems to be more political, and the US/Mexico border is very political in nature.The formal region share similar land, culture, vegetation, landforms, etc. Although some would say there is a major cultural difference, I believe due to the proximities the borderlands have to eachother the culture melds quite a lot. As far as landforms, climate and vegetation, they share the same everything.
