Ships – faster and bigger

The first people to build ships the Egyptians 5000 years ago. They use to travel on the River Nile, the longest river in Africa.
In the sixteen century, people from Europe traveled thousands of kilometers in large ships. It was important that they found new ways around the world. Life was hard for these sailors and on the journey, many died because they often didn’t have food.
In the nineteenth century, ships called “clippers” tea from China to Britain and wool from Australia to the USA. In very strong winds, clippers could sail 650 kilometers a day.
In modern times, the largest ships are oils tankers. of these are 400 meters long so the sailors have to use bicycles to travel around the ship!

Read the text and answer the questions.

Ballooning

Ballooning, or flying in a hot air balloon, was the most successful way of flying invented by man, before the airplane. Lucas Sheen invented the passenger hot air balloon in July in 1872, but people flew in other kinds of balloons long before that. The first modern hot air balloon was designed and built by Ed Yost in 1960.

A hot air balloon has a bag called the envelope. Under the envelope, there is a basket, which carries the passengers. It also carries the gas burner that heats the air inside the envelope. Because hot air is lighter than the cold air outside the envelope, the balloon can fly. Most hot air balloons fly in the cooler hours of the day, before sunrise, or two to three hours before sunset. This is when the winds are usually light, which makes it easier for the hot air balloon to take off and land. Strong winds are dangerous, so hot air balloon pilots always check the weather before they decide to take off.

Today, hot air balloons are used for touring and for fun. Many companies give hot air balloon rides and people can fly above the treetops. As a passenger, there are many things you can enjoy. To start with, you get a bird’s-eye view of what is happening on the ground. You can see for miles around, and the fields look like a painting. Another thing ballooning gives you is the feeling of quiet, because you are far above the noise you usually hear on the ground, as the sounds of trains, trucks, and cars. Since the balloon moves with the direction and speed of the wind, the passengers do not feel the wind at all. The only time they do feel it, and for a short time only, is when the balloon goes higher or lower.

  • to make the balloon fly.

The missing cups

When I was young, my parents moved from California to Illinois with me and my two sisters. We all helped my mother pack everything from our old house into boxes. Inside three of the boxes were my grandmother’s special cups, bowls, and plates. They were special because my grandmother, a clever artist, painted them herself with a lovely pattern of blue flowers.

Sadly, one of those three boxes was lost. We never got the cups, but the plates and bowls arrived safely. We used them on special days in the year, like a birthday. We remembered those cups and were sad that we did not have them anymore.

Ten years later, I decided to go to university in California. In my first summer there, a friend asked me to spend the day at an antique market with her. At first, I didn’t want to go, but I finally agreed and we had a great day there looking around. There were many old and interesting things for sale. We were just leaving when I saw a woman selling twelve beautiful cups with a pattern of blue flowers. I looked closely and saw they were my grandmother’s cups!
