Remember that your answer needs to be at least two paragraphslong. When you reply to a fellow student, write as though you are amedieval Central Asian Turk or Chinese person trying to understandthe lifeways and customs of the medieval Europeans.
On my quest to explore western Europe, I have come across manynew and different way of life. Sometimes it feels like I’m in someanother world itself. The people, language, lifestyle everything isso different than what we have back at home. Even the definition ofgod is different here. Most of the people are having light skin butthe colour of their hairs can be different. Food wise, most of thepopulation are eating animals and plants both, which is kind ofsimilar to what we have.
Customs and lifeways are very different here. They have a ruleror a king who presides over the whole region and churches looksafter the religious matters, but sometimes it feels like churcheshave more power than the king itself. Women are dressed in a moreconservative manner and are having duties limited to household workmostly like cooking, cleaning etc. men are having more liberty andauthority over matters.
It’s not like we won’t find people from around the world here, Ihave met several people from different areas like Egypt etc. Onething that is to bring to attention is people here are explorers,they like to explore new lands and opportunities around the world,although their ways can be a bit harsh sometimes.
Architecture is also very different here which seems like it isevolving with the modern times. Overall, it’s a new experience andquite exciting too.
