One of the most important things for the human is, of course, dwelling. Every country has own dwelling which shows us their culture or custom. As for the Mongolia, traditional dwelling is “Ger” which is so spacious and convenient for the Mongolians. They always move one place to another place. So, in this situation, ger is easy to carry. From the early time to present, Mongolians are still living in the ger. Unfortunately, these days most of the people are moving into Ulaanbaatar or urban areas where the houses are common than gers, because in urban area the ger has some disadvantages such as pollution, cost of heating, small, etc. so people prefer living in house to living in ger.
Now I would like to mention about the dwelling of other countries. There are many types of dwelling. 1. This is a traditional thatched house of Portugal, the house looks like A letter. So this is called A-frame house. These houses were being built during the world war II.
