Living in the desert Gobi

Dieser interessante Artikel über das Leben in der Wüste Gobi wurde von der Klasse 7d geschrieben.

You may have seen a picture of the tents the Mongolian warriors lived in while travelling from battlefield to battlefield long ago, like with wheels and a herd of cows in the front of the waggon to pull it. That’s the form the tents in the desert Gobi have but there are no wheels, of course, that’s because the people who live there stay  at one spot forever. You can’t see much more than sand, brush, camels, sheep and naturally these tents, maybe  some snowy mountains in the background but that depends on where you are. The villages are very small, maybe three tents, a fenced-in pasture for sheep and some robust wood-polls to tie up the camels. The tents are made of a cloth material and the pasture is fenced in by stones. Maybe one or two families live in a tent settlement.The villages are very small, maybe three tents, a fenced-in pasture for sheep and some robust wood-polls to tie up the camels. The tents are made of a cloth material and the pasture is fenced in by stones. Maybe one or two families live in a tent settlement.A family like this could look like this: grandparents, parents, a big brother and a small sister, maybe a little baby too. Everybody has to do their part in the family. Somebody has to cook (mostly rice and camel milk) over the wo0od-oven in the middle of the tent, somebody has to milk and sheer the camels that the family lives of and somebody has to keep an eye on the little kids. These families are mostly very religious; they often bring offerings for example if a camel is born. This event is always important for the family because they make their money of the camels. If a mother camel doesn’t except its new-born baby the chances of it dying are high.

The children can’t go to school; there is mostly no TV and no Wi-Fi so the kids find other ways to entertain themselves when they don’t have to work: sometimes they play games with camel bones, their grandpa tells them stories or they listen to the radio. Sometimes the family runs out of batteries for the radio and somebody has to go to a city to buy some. In the city, the kids can go to school , some of them have a bike and there aren’t so many tents there. Often it is very cold in the desert and the sandstorms sweep over the land; then every house and tent get shut up and for a few hours nobody except the camels is out.

This was a report about the life without Wi-Fi and where camels play an enormous role in everyday life.
