The World Cup might have been a focus in the past month, but for many around the world, an only team that mattered was the “Wild Boars’. The burst of joy when the young team emerges safe and sound from the flood cave in Thailand matched any World Cup final. It was not surprising that the social media was filled with praises to not only the rescue team but also
the “swarm of men and women” from Thailand and around the world.

There was small business owners of diving gear and oxygen cylinders whose gave their equipment for free to the rescue team, and farmers who sacrificed their crops so that water could be pump out from the caves. Then, there were these who cycled hundreds of kilometres every day to the cave site to cook and caring for the rescue team.

Mohamed Salah Ghaly is an Egyptian footballer who plays as a forward for the Egyptian national team as well as Premier League
Club Liverpool.
Born in Nagrig, he 1s a gifted footballer since his childhood. He came from a sporty family in which football was the game his father and uncles played at a youth club in Nagrig.

Initially, football was just a leisure activity for Salah but he started taking it as a serious career opportunity when he joined a local youth club ‘El Mokawloon’ in
Cairo at the age of eighteen. The journey from his hometown to
Cairo was tiring and time consuming where he had to change five buses to reach his training centre. That had never discouraged him from becoming a successful footballer.

As time went by, Salah made his way to play for famous clubs namely, Fiorentina and Chelsea but his biggest success came when he was offered a contract by Liverpool in 2017. Since then, he has been scoring many important goals for both the club and his home country. He is much loved by his fans and due to his goal scoring feat, they dubbed him as ‘The Pharaoh’.

As a result of his outstanding performances, he won numerous prestigious awards which includes Premier League Player of the Month, Football Writers’ Player of the Year and African Footballer of the Year.

Travelling is the act of going on a visit to another place either for sightseeing or business. Most people like to travel and they travel for different reasons. In the past, during the days of exploration, people travelled by land and sea to look for things like spices and tea and to discover new land.

For many people nowadays, going to a new place means getting to know the culture and the way of life of the inhabitants there. To be fluent in a foreign language, the best step would be to make a visit to the country and reside there for some time. Food, especially exotic food attracts people to foreign countries. Nowadays, there are some specialists in food such as chocolates and cheese and even modern food such as pastas and pizzas. They are called food connoisseurs.

There are people who travel to make new friends. They find it rewarding to get to know someone who has different ways of life. They take the opportunity to experience how they lead their lives so as to become more knowledgeable. Some even go to big events such as the World Cup just to watch a match whilst making new friends. New Zealand and Australia are ranked the top 3 friendliest countries by the Men’s Health magazine. Malaysia makes it to the top 10 list as well as
Brazil, Spain and Sweden.

Religion is another reason that encourages people to travel. They travel to holy places to make pilgrimages. Mecca is a must for Muslims and the Vatican City is the main choice for devoted Christians. Others travel to escape the cold or the heat in their countries. These are seasonal travellers. A charitable heart is willing to travel long distances to help people in distress or in war-torn countries. For this purpose, some African and Asian countries made it in the list of the travellers’ choice, such as India, Rwanda, Syria and Palestine. For whatever reasons, travelling never fails to enrich our life.

From the acid soil that poisoned me.

With my tainted flesh

All the birds of the lake.

I poisoned with mercury
Fish, plant and weed
To pamper mens’ greed.

Who killed the flowers?
I, moaned the wind.
I prowl unconfined,
Blowing acid rain
Over field, flood and fen.

I ensured that it died,
Said sulphur dioxide.
All all life within it,
from earthworm to linnet.
