What is Libya Like?

Food: In my country people usually cook their food at home. The most popular foods are couscous, bazine and macaroni but they sometimes eat out in restaurants especially at dinner and they never eat in the street.

Weekends: A lot of people go to picnics at their farms. Some of them go to the beach, sometimes they go to visit some friends. We've got two days holiday in a week; Friday and Saturday. On Friday we've a special prayer in the mosque at lunchtime.

School: We send our children to study at the age of six, this is primary school. When they are twelve they go to a secondary school.

Entertainment: People usually watch TV at mealtimes. A lot of people like Aljazeera channel. They sometimes go to the hospital to visit some friends because a lot of them are sick of boring days. Also they enjoy shopping and sleeping.

Sport: Libyan people like football matches. Some of them like fishing on the sea, but they always play football wherever they want; sometimes in the street, their farms and they usually play at school.

Animals: Some people raise animals on their farms. We use the meat of some animals in our food. Most of the animals are camels, sheep, rabbits, but people never raise pigs on their farms at all.

Shops: Shops are usually open at 9:00am. Some people open their shops at 11:00am but they never open n Friday mornings. Some shops are closed on Saturday too.

This was a really good idea. I'm a school teacher from New Zealand and my Y7/8 (12/13 year old students) wouldn't have any idea about Libya. I will get some next week to log on and have a look and its easy to explain the country to them! A couple of photographs would be great too! Maybe someone wearing regular clothes or the school uniform!
