A month ago I had no idea that on a Saturday afternoon in November I’d be hanging 30 metres
above the ground and enjoying it. Now I looked down at the river far below me, and realised why people
love rock-climbing.
My friend Matt and I had arrived at the Activity Centre on Friday evening. The accommodation
wasn’t wonderful, but we had everything we needed (beds, blankets, food), and we were pleased to be out
of the city and in the fresh air.
On Saturday morning we met the other ten members of our group. Cameron had come along with
two friends, Kevin and Simon, while sisters Carole and Lynn had come with Amanda. We had come from
various places and none of us knew the area.



We knew we were going to spend the weekend outdoors, but none of us was sure exactly how. Half
of us spent the morning caving while the others went rock-climbing and then we changed at lunchtime.
Matt and I went to the caves first. Climbing out was harder than going in, but after a good deal of pushing,
we were out at last – covered in mud but pleased and excited by what we’d done.

Winter is dangerous because it’s so difficult to know what is going to happen and accidents take
place so easily. Fog can be waiting to meet you over the top of a hill. Ice might be hiding beneath the
melting snow, waiting to send you off the road. The car coming towards you may suddenly slide across the
Rule Number One for driving on icy roads is to drive smoothly. Uneven movements can make a car
suddenly very difficult to control. So every time you either turn the wheel, touch the brakes or increase
your speed, you must be as gentle and slow as possible. Imagine you are driving with a full cup of hot
coffee on the seat next to you. Drive so that you wouldn’t spill it.
Rule Number Two is to pay attention to what might happen. The more ice there is the further down
the road you have to look. Test how long it takes to stop by gently braking. Remember that you may be
driving more quickly than you think. In general, allow double your normal stopping distance when the road
is wet, three times this distance on snow, and even more on ice. Try to stay in control of your car at all
times and you will avoid trouble.

Each society has its own beliefs, attitudes, customs, behaviours, and social habits. These give
people a sense of who they are, how they should behave, and what they should or should not do. These
‘rules’ reflect the ‘culture’ of a country.
People become conscious of such rules when they meet people from different cultures. For example,
in some cultures, being on time can mean turning up several hours late for an appointment, even for a
business meeting; in others, 3 p.m. means 3 p.m. Also, the rules about when to eat vary from culture to
culture. Many North Americans and Europeans are used to having three mealtimes a day and organizing
their timetable around them. In some countries, on the other hand, people often do not have strict rules like
this – people eat when they want to and every family has its own timetable.
When people visit or live in a country for the first time, they often surprised at the differences that
exist between their own culture and that in the other country. The most common way of comparing two
cultures is in terms of their differences – not their similarities.

The petroleum we obtain today was formed under the ground for many millions of years. In the
past, small animals living in the sea sank to the seabed when they died. Layers of these creatures built up
over millions of years, and the actions of heat, pressure and bacteria turned their bodies into petroleum. The
petroleum spread through porous rocks until it came to impervious rocks. In this way, pockets of petroleum
were formed beneath the ground. Over many thousands of years, this land rose above the sea, and deposits
of oil are now found on or near land.
Oil companies employ scientists to study rocks and discover where oil is likely to be found. If it
seems likely that oil exists beneath their feet, they will drill a narrow hole to find out whether there is any
oil. They may be unsuccessful; if a new field is being explored, there is one chance in nine of discovering
