I live in London in a warehouse flat. I love it. It’s got much more character than most modern flats. It’s on the top floor of a converted 19 th century tea ware- house, and it’s basically one large room with very high white walls and an enor- mous wooden floor. The living room area is really light and spacious. There’s only one bedroom, which is on a balcony above the living area. Leading off this is a fantastic bathroom which is really luxurious. The kitchen’s under the balcony. It’s very futuristic’ - all stainless steel and natural location to live in too, within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars shops, and the tube. The only problem is it ’s very expensive to live here and I have to work hard to pay for it. I live in Essex with my parents, my sister, and our two dogs in a windmill! It’s really old, late 18 th century, I think. We moved here because my parents wanted to leave London and live in the country. The great thing about it is that all the rooms are round, which it seem really different from most other houses, and the ceilings are quite low, which going up and down stairs all t he time. The kitchen is on the first floor, it’s old - fashioned but we like it and we spend most of our time there. The living room is on the second floor. It’s got old phot os of the windmill on the walls. There are four bedrooms on the top two floors - min e’s on the top floor – and three bathrooms. We’ve got a lovely large garden. It’s a nice house but it is a long way from town , so I always need a lift when I go out. My house is a narrow boat, moored just outside Leeds. It’s 25 year old and so all the rooms are much smaller than a normal house. It’s fine for me though. I bought the boat after leaving uni- versity because I couldn’t afford a house. Inside there’s a very cosy living room and a well - equipped kitchen area. There are also two small bedrooms and a shower’s room. In summer, if I want to sit outside, there is space for a table and 1 2 3 22 chairs on the open deck. The engine does a maximum of 10km/hour. Travelling along the canal really suit me. I think that people who live on the water are friendlier. But the maintenance costs are quite high, with servicing the engine and repainting the boat every year.

Alpha has als o got scientific laboratories and fifty - two, computers! B ______ Up to eight astronauts can live on Alpha. There is no gravity, of course, so life isn’t the same as it is on Earth. The astronauts usually sleep eight hours every night, not in beds but in special sleeping bags fixed to the walls. Also, the crew members can’t have a shower in weightless conditions, so they wash with wet cloths. Once a day, they ride an exercise bike for 30 minutes to keep fit. They have meals in the kitchen and t hey eat normal food, but they don’t use salt and pepper because it flies awayA The astronauts don’t have make decisions about what to eat because they choose their food months before the trip and a computer tells them their menu for every meal. D ______ In the station they wear T - shirts and trousers or shorts. But they don’t need shoes because they don’t walk - they float! When they go outside the station, they wear special space suit with enough oxygen for eight hours. E ________ C ______ A home in space 29 Astronauts on Alpha are very busy.
