  2. my name is Tanner I am 12 years old and frankly I am not liking to live on this floating village. I can't play sports. I can only swim it gets really boring doing it every day. If the water rises and we get heavy wind the village falls way apart.

  3. Life is really cool here. This village is only four weeks old and only five people have drowned! Isn't that amazing?! Last time we made a village like this the whole thing sank. Why is the floor under me sinking? Everything is getting wet. And the ceiling collapses. (Ran out of time, that was lame, sorry.) :)

  5. I look at the last piece of crummy land. I hate it here. And the last time I ever stood on solid ground is never. I was born on this piece of floating barrels and wood. I have never seen any animals besides birds, fish, bugs, and the occasional raccoon. I am so thin because all the animals are dead, rotting at the bottom of the sea because of the oil and we don't get that much water.

    1. sometimes I wonder how a real kid lives. Ive always wanted to live on land. yet, I like the water......sometimes I find myself talking to the narwhal, Larry (the under the sea unicorn) No! Im not crazy. Ok, I might of had too much to drink. you know, Mountain dew. I get hyped up on that kind of stuff......Root beer, mountain dew, coke, sunkist. the usual. God darnet. I forgot to introduce myself. Hello, my name is Mel. I like to eat melons. But I dont get them often, because we dont got no mellons in the ol' piece of junk you know, (the city).

  7. I am Lavender I have live on this boat like thing since I was borne. I live here with my mom and dad and sister Marigold, one day I was handing out party invitations to the other people who live here with my friend Lily. The party was at my house on the South West part of the boat, raft, what ever its called. My family has one every year, That's when it happened, Lily and I went to cross over on to a different part of the raft when it split...........


    Add on please :)

  8. If I could leave, believe me. I would.
    This little boat village thingy my parents had to move to stinks. It is in Louisiana, my dad was relocated here because he is in the army. Here, it is so boring. All we do is swim, then fish, then swim a little more, then fish again for some more fish. When you swim, all the little fish are always swarming you, and to be honest, it's scary.
    See, I am originally from Arizona. In Arizona it is nice and dry. It is really hot, but it is better than here. It is so humid in Louisiana, so when it is hot, it's even worse. My name is Willow. Honestly here all the girls are snotty and selfish. No one really likes me. The few kids who live here go to a tiny school. All of us already live in tiny homes, so we always feel cramped. We also have a really limited supply of everything here, except for fish.
    So one day I was just casually walking to school on out narrow pieces of wood we have to walk on, when I see a house smoking. 'How is something smoking here?' I wonder. It is the house right next to me, so I hurry on. The the fire spread out to the buildings to the North. I worry about the barrels being burned that keep our little raft here up. I didn't even have time to finish my next though when I feel hands wrap around my neck, tight.........

  9. My name is Alex. I have just moved here and I DON'T LIKE IT!!! There is no Wifi, no clean water, Blah, blah, blah. My brother is really anoying, he keeps trying to push me into the water. So i'm just sitting here on the dock, wondering how life could get any worse, when it did. I felt a sharp pain my leg and saw a huge gator latched on to my leg. It suddenly pulled so hard I was dragged under water! I don't Know what to do so please give me some tips. Like, ASAP!

    2. As I was going under I noticed that the gator right leg had a bolt in it to me it looked pretty old and rusty so I tried to pull it out. I thought it would calm the mad king of the water but all it did was making him a riled up. Then I heard a moaning groaning sound coming from deep in side of the amphibian. First I noticed how big this animal was, then I noticed I. WAS. BREATHING. Like, ding just like that I then I decided to do a little experiment. I am Totaly a better swimer than I thought though still not that good I bet that app little sharkey sharkey makes me swim better you know that top notch video game. I swung around the the alligators leg and waked him on the side with my fist, it crazily hurt the thing was a metal machine!!! Suddendly it was dropping down to the Indonesian sea floor, as it did I held on to the bolt that started this whole thing...

  10. It was fun here. I had many good memory's there. I loved this place that we called home. I was devastated when my mom told me we had to leave. We quickly ran out that morning. Grabbing everything we could. Now I live here. I this little "fort". That my mom now calls home.

  11. we live on the edge of Brasil and its really hot. we are not allowed to go in the water because of piranhas. there were some fatal events that happened here 2 years ago. my uncle and my mom. in my eyes its a small world.

  12. I look at whats left of the "village". I smell the fishy, polluted, and nasty sea air. I miss my old life, in the actual city. That is before the government took over, and made us move in to this "village". I mean it's not terrible, but it's not my dream house. It also floods really easily. Like for example, last week my ceiling started to cave in from the rain. It's still raining, so that means the contractor can't come until the storm blows over. I see that the ceiling is getting worse. Oh gosh, it just dropped like seven inches.

    1. Oh gosh, it's dropping more! And more! It's like 5 feet lower! It smells badly of gas in here. Suddenly I start to feel woozy. Suddenly, everything goes Black...

  13. It looks like just the type of place I would like. This is because people live very well here. For example, there is plenty of peace and quiet, as well as no scarcity of food because there is a frequent supply of fish and other foods from the sea. The people seem very friendly and nice. Perhaps this is because they are at peace with themselves and others.

  14. life on my floating village is hard and their inset much food and we have to eat scraps of food.

  15. My name is Mario, My house is the Orange one in the left hand side. life in a floating village is very close, You kind of know everything and everyone in the town, I know this town like the front of my hand, yea I know everyone says back of my hand but I wanted to be different and I probably know the front more than the back. to get back on track the town smells fishy or at least the people who visit this town say but I get use to it. I am 12 and I have lived here since I was 2 or 3. This town is very much different than the last village I lived in, my old village was in the hills somewhere in the background so you can kind of see the change. I love it here, and I think its a great place to live

  16. My name is Anibell and I am 7 years old, I have lived here all my life. It kind of sucks here and I really do not like it, but since this is all my mother can offord I try to make the best of it. My father died when I was 4 but even though I was really young then, I still remember everything,like my mother crying and crying for ages and I was freaking out because I didn't really know what was going on then. I try to forget about that but it still always comes across my mind once and a wile, my mom thinks that I do not really understand things in life that well because of my age but I really do. You know how when you are 7 or 6 or someware around that age when someone dies you do not really understand and you do not really cry or anything, or if something happens you don't really care because all you care about is your toys and stuff, well my mom thinks of me like that but really that is not true because I do care. My mom also tells me that someday we are going to live someware amazing. but I know that is never going to happen. I only have one friend here and her name I Ella, but she is always out fishing with her family or something and I am not aloud to go fishing because my mom is afraid that I am going to fall in the water and dround so really here all I have is my home and my mother.

    1. I love to see the different views about this floating city from the students, so many different perspectives. I too find this place to be very beautiful and peaceful. If you lived here I bet your skills to kick a soccerball straighter would improve and ypur sense of balance would as well. Can you imagine what it would be like to balance on the floating bridges that connect the walkways between the neighbors' homes, instead of on a balance beam that is stationary? Being rocked to sleep every night instead of listening to beeping traffic ... oh just think how simple life would be without the added expense of electronics. Working together as a community instead of competing all the time. Yes, life is beautiful and peaceful where I am on this floating world of paradise.

  19. I'm a kid who likes to swim so this has been an amazing place to grow up. Lately though, people have not liked living here as much because they lose their groceries in the water. They fall out of the grocery bags and right into the water. And this one time my Uncle Jim-Bob dropped his glasses in the water and now he can't see anything. He has no eyecare plan. I do wish there was some land nearby so I could go muddin with my 2004 Ford F-149.

  20. My name is Cleo. I was born on a floating island. Everyone on the island likes it here but I don't. We are all so skinny because fishing boats steal all of the fish. I would like to go to some where dry and where I can eat as much as I want. I was walking to the tiny market on the other side of the island when............

  22. I am one of the many thousands of barrels. Holding up the village except I am one of the best. I hold up the kings house. Everybody says the best fishing is far from the village but I sea millions of fish swim past me I would tell them wear the fish are if I had a mouth. I think the fish go under because its because they like to swim under the kings house.

  23. My name is Fred. I am living in the middle of the ocean in this floating village. Life is really fun here because you can swim, fish, or just relax when ever you want. I usually swim because you can see all the fish swimming around under you. I like to pretend I am one of them and I swim around with them all day, trying to get close enough to catch them. I have never really been able to since they are so fast and slippery.

  24. My name is sandy I live in one of the hoses in the floating villages. The reason these houses are floating is because there was a huge and horrible flood, our village is still trying our hardest to pick up litter from the water that floats around us. Then one day when I was picking up a soda can from the water I saw something above me I looked up and gasped ....."mom come here...quick!" I yelled to my mo who was bent over picking up a soggy news paper "i'm coming" she says......

  34. This is one of those nights that you can just walk up onto the hill and see the real beauty of our village. My family and I always come up hear once a week, I think on Fridays but I'm not sure because in our village we don't have clocks. In our little house we don't have very much stuff at all; in fact we don't have toys and we don't have very much space to do anything at all. I sleep on rags; when I wake up I don't know whats happening. I get into my only pair of cloths,(Mommy made them with the material she got from the dump). I work all day. To survive we have to take our little beat up boat out into the river and my father and I we fish until the sun goes down. We come back home with about 75 pounds of fish. I am the one who has to haul all of the fish up the dock to the big truck that takes all of the fish to a factory far away from our home. After that I go back to the house and eat the dinner that mommy serves. My sisters to young to help do anything so I have to do all of the work by my self. Every night mommy always says "Alex, life is great." But I don't think so.

  35. I am Heusan I live on the Caspian sea, on a village that is floating. When travelers come through they say we are crazy that we can live on this floating town. I am fine with it because I love swimming and I wanted to be a swimmer when I was a an adult. But today my mom said we needed to flee our town because a storm was coming through and our town was going to be destroyed. I was shocked when my mom told me that, because I have lived here my whole life and now I have to leave. After we gathered our stuff we got on big boats that took us to land. I have been to the land very few times and I have never liked it. We hiked for many hours, then the clouds rolled by and the rain came down.

  37. "All right guys it's time to bring out the bull dozer we're going to have to put it on a boat." I hear the man yell from the top of our hill as Mommy and Bupa pack all our things. "What's happening?" I say afraid to hear the answer. "We're leaving this place the Americans are turning our town into a 'water park' what ever that is." Mommy says, she has that look in her eye the one that I know all to well it means we're leaving again. "Bapa what's a water park?" I asked my wise old grandfather who seems to know everything about the world. "It's a place that someday will ruin the world when all of our oceans and water towns have been turned into water parks a place where you ride something so you can have fun in water insted of just swimming!" I was positive that we were not going to leave again I loved this place we felt safe here like life was a small dream and if woke up u would never come back. I didn't want to wake up. I ran out the door leaving my mother, Bupa, sister and two brothers all wondering what I was doing. I swam to the hill and walked up to the man and yelled right in his face,"I will not let you ruin my town I will not let you ruin my family once again!" He pushed me aside like i was gross little bug and walked down the hill i followed him.

  38. I am Italian woman, I have three children. I live in Rome, where my family can be relaxed and also have fun. We have the most fun when we ride across the river and under the bridges, through the town on the canoes. The best part of this town is the people, there is never a dull moment. Only 2 weeks ago I didn't know anyone, and now we know everyone. It's the life I've been dreaming of my whole life, nothing is better than this. Except...

  42. My name is Omar. I live on the floating city. Living on the floating city is fun. It is just a fishing city. We go out on our boats and catch fish. Our city is known for some of the biggest fish in all the land. Then in the afternoon a big ship comes and gives us the money that are fish will sell for at auction. We git about $10 a day. You start out working when we turn 5. you start out untangling nets. The first couple of jobs are boring. If you do not pay your taxes they will be cut your boat from the city.
