Different places – different lives

Calvin 

Calvin lives on Vatersay, an island in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The island is very, very small. It is five kilometers long and five kilometers wide, and there are fewer than 100 people on the island.

Calvin’s father works at fisherman. He usually leaves the house before six o’clock in the morning. His mum always spends the day at home. She often does the housework, but that isn’t the only thing she does. She teaches Calvin and his three sisters too. Vatersay hasn’t got a school, so the children learn at home. Calvin and his family sometimes watch TV in the evenings, but not very often, because the pictures is hardly ever very good.

Mawar

Mawar lives in the village of Kertajaya, West Java. It is 80 kilometers to the city from Mawar’s home. And it is a seven kilometers walk to a real school. But Mawar never goes to that school. There is a temporary school in Mawar’s village, and that’s where she and 100 other pupils have their lessons every day. I can’t walk seven kilometers to school and back again every day. There are often storms and there is a lot of rain, Mawar says. ‘The school in our village is great. The building is old and it isn’t very good. But it means I can always go to school. Mawar and her family never watch television – they haven’t got TV.

Mother is a very special and important person for every child. In fact, she is the most precious gift of God for everyone. A child can see the world only because of her. For me, my mother is the symbol of love, honesty and truth. My moter is an inspiration for me, she is an amazing woman and I always start my day with my mother’s smile. My mother’s name is Shushan.

Many times, she becomes a child herself and enjoys to the fullest with us like going out for movies or for shopping. I always share all my secrets with my mom and she always gives me useful advices.

My pet ❤️

Dogs are one of the most loyal animals. I have a pet, his name is Archi. He’s very kind and fun. All members of my family love him very much. His breed is Chihuahua. I enjoy playing with him. He’s an important part of our family, not just a pet. He loves our family members but he’s agressive to strangers. He likes meat and sausages. I always buy him beautiful clothes and toys. He always does some funny tricks. He is afraid of taking bath. My grandmother takes care of him, when i am not at home. I often take him with me to the park for a walk, especially in summer. He likes some sweets, dark chocolate, apples, broccoli, cabbage and coliflower. I like him very much and i don’t feel lonely when he’s with me.
