As for themselves they would use camels as their transportation, wear long thin clothes so they were protected from the sun and eat and drink the milk and cheese produced from their livestock.

ADAPTIONS TO THE MOUNTAINS:  Mountain dwellers adapt my building terraces into the mountian side. These flat strips of ground on the hillside allow for the growing of crops

ADAPTIONS TO THE COASTAL PLAINS:Due to the environment (moist damp air, rain falls regularly, some waterways)  the area is suitable for farming. People deep wells, dams, and irrigation systems (to bring water to dry places in order to grow crops).
