This is the Menna family. They live in Colegiales, a neighbourhood in Buenos Aires.
During the week they are very busy.
This is Roberto. He works as a reporter for Channel 9, an Argentinian television network. He reports on lots of different news stories. Every day is different, and there’s a lot to do, but he loves his job. This is Gabriela. She’s always busy too. She works at a local radio station and she starts very early. She wakes up before the rest of the family and leaves the house at around 6.30 a.m.!
Milagros and Julieta are Roberto and Gabriela’s daughters. Milagros is 11 and Julieta is 7. They go to the same school and they start at 8 a.m. So it’s always a rush in the morning.
During the week the Menna family don’t have a lot of free time so they really enjoy the weekend! On Saturday they usually get up around 9 or 10 a.m. and they all make breakfast together. They eat toast with cheese and butter, but Julieta has cereal with chocolate milk. Roberto and Milagros drink mate, a typical Argentinian drink, and Gabriela drinks coffee.
Sometimes Roberto makes special omelettes. They’re delicious!
After breakfast the family often play games.
Sometimes they play board games but the girls often prefer to play video games. In the afternoon they often go for a walk or go to the park near their house. It’s a small park but it has swings and a slide so the girls have lots of fun.
In the evening they play music. Milagros plays the guitar and the rest of the family sing. Sometimes Roberto plays the bongos!
Sunday is a relaxing day too. In the morning they stay at home. Gabriela reads the paper, Roberto drinks more mate and the girls play on the computer.
In the afternoon they usually visit Gabriela’s parents and have a large meal with them. They all eat outside. They have barbecued meat with salad and bread. After the meal they have coffee and go home.
By the time they get home it’s time for bed. On Sunday they go to bed early, so they have lots of energy for the week ahead!

History of transport

Today we can travel from one side of the world to the other in one day. Travel in the past was dangerous and journeys took months or even years. At first people walked everywhere. Then, over 10,000 years ago, they started to use boats, and about 4,000 years ago, they started to use animals, such as horses, camels or elephants. After that things didn’t change until the nineteenth century, when people invented new forms of transport.

In 1817 Baron von Drais made the first bicycle in Germany. It was a heavy, wooden bike with no pedals. You pushed it with your feet. Later bikes had pedals, but some of them, like Penny Farthing, with its large front wheels, were very dangerous.

In 1885 Karl Friedrich Benz made the first car and Gottlieb Daimler designed the first motorcycle. Early motor vehicles were very expensive and only rich people could buy them.

Henry Ford changed that. In 1908 he started to build good, cheap cars, like the Model T, in his factory in the USA. Soon ordinary people had their own cars.

Only ten years after the first car, the first motor bus appeared. People called it «an omnibus» (This means «for everybody» in Latin), or «bus» for short.

The bus wasn’t the first form of transport «for everybody». That was the train. George Stephenson opened the first railway between Liverpool and Manchester in 1830. He built the first train, too. It was called Rocket and it could travel at 45 kph. Soon people could travel hundreds of kilometers in just a few hours.

Today planes fly thousands of kilometers and they carry hundreds of passengers. The first aeroplane, however, carried only one person.

The «Wright Brothers» plane, Kitty Hawk, flew for the first time in the USA in 1903. It flew for just 12 seconds and travelled 36 meters!
