~Journey to the Arabian Peninsula~
By: Taylor Gillespie
The first place i visited in the Arabian Peninsula was the mountains. If you look forward to living their you must notice most people have to farm there, so building steps is something you should look into to help with this, also it helps with no falling off the very high mountain. Second the dry riverbeds go down the mountain filling with water when a storm comes, so this cause very bad flooding. On the plus side of this the have very good irrigation systems and dams in some place there. Lastly the mountains are very cool, so if you want to be a bit warmer the right place to be is on the top of the mountains because the sun would be hitting it directly at the top (also making the snow melt.
Mountains not for you? Well the sound place i traveled was The Coastal Plains! People use it to help with buying and selling goods. This is the best land to travel in the Arabian Peninsula. But you can't travel to far because the Plains end with a series of rocky cliffs, also ending in death if fallen. They also have one of the best irrigation systems there. There irrigation systems run very softly, and there's also another water for everyone, instead of have almost no water. This land is also the best for growing crops. People have taken advantage of growing crops in the Plains. The soil is the richest. So if you look forward to growing crops or like it, plane on moving to The Coastal Plains.
I also visited The Oases. The Oases have very many animals. The water seeps to the surface making water hole for various animals to drink out of to stay alive. Relating to that the other day i say a man building a well because it help with crops! If you look forward to living here, you better build a well or all your crops with be sure to die! Lastly you have to build you own house and irrigation systems. Most farmers built them out of palm trees, one of the strongest tree to build on out out of! They also build the roofs out of leaves. Lastly for the irrigation systems they build them out of hallowed out pipes, also helping them lead to where they need them to be.
Lastly i visited the Desert, it is below freezing in winter and can get up to 120 degrees (Fahrenheit) in the summer. So make sure you are ready for that! Also it only rains 2 inches per year!! but when it does rain it will cause flash floods! Lastly if you don't like walking for miles on end with heavy stuff, then you should get a camel for the trip!
