    connected

-   But globalization is not new
-   For thousands of years, different countries/continents have traded with
    each other

    across Central Asia that
    connected China and
    Europe during
    the Middle- Ages

  frontieres...) are trying to stop the famine, poverty
  and diseases in poor countries e.g. in Africa

  make the most of their fame and support the
  organisations adopting kids or spending money
