Hello... oh, oh...How do echoes work?

When Viking Rich was out in the mountains one day, he shouted for help when he lost his way! But, instead of someone replying, he heard his own voice repeat what he shouted!
How does that work? And why does it only happen in some places?

Is paper 2D or 3D?

We all know 3D objects go forward-back, left-right and up-down. But thin sheets of paper are definitely lacking in one of these dimensions! Does this make it 2D?
