La ciudad basura

Hola, soy Nuria de la clase 1.C y os vengo a hablar de una ciudad muy peculiar.

¿Os gustaría vivir entre basura? En Egipto hay una ciudad en la que sus habitantes viven entre basura.Su economía depende de una actividad:procesar la basura de los 10 millones de habitantes de El Cairo. No hay agua potable ni electricidad y los animales viven libres entre los enormes montones de basura.Las familias viven en una pobreza extrema.En esta ciudad procesan todo tipo de basura,ya sea plásticos,metales u otro tipo de objetos. Los habitantes de esta ciudad se llaman Zabbaleen. Vienen de familias de campesinos cristianos que fueron echados de sus tierras y emigraron a El Cairo para sobrevivir.

La población más grande se ubica en el pueblo Mokattam , que es apodado como ” ciudad basura”.

ACD didn’t have many patients so he wrote in his free time. First, he wrote a story about a detective called Sherlock and his friend Dr Watson.

He sent the story to a popular magazine called The Strand. Guess what? It was a big success. Readers loved Holmes and he sent more stories and The Strand sold many many copies.

That was the beginning of the grat Sherlock Holmes
