It was hard to handle living in Arabia because it is so hot. It was so hot that plants will die easily. I wouldnt want to go back to Arabia because it was so hot. I cant handle the heat. The nomads were hardworkers because they took care of sheeps goats and many more. Also, they had a membership for tribe. It was challenging because im not used to hot weather here in San Diego it is hot but it is not as hot as in Arabia. I would never want to go back in Arabia because It was way different from when I am in san diego. q=arabia&num=10&hl=en&safe=active&tbo=d&biw=1093&bih=434&tbm=isch&tbnid=uq0J0epR2aiBhM:&imgrefurl=http://www.b 185&hovw=272&tx=132&ty=199&sig=105909401356261468686&page=1&tbnh=108&tbnw=142&start=0&ndsp=16&ved=1t:429, r:15,s:0,i:133 q=climate+in+arabian+desert&hl=en&safe=active&tbo=d&biw=1093&bih=434&tbm=isch&tbnid=ft_VODipUAfCSM:&imgrefurl=http://e hovw=204&tx=76&ty=117&sig=105909401356261468686&page=1&tbnh=112&tbnw=122&start=0&ndsp=14&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:0,i:93
