The ribosome's main purpose is to create proteins for a cell. Proteins are very important in a cell because they build body parts, enzymes and hormones. a brick factory makes building blocks to build large structures. Besides, a city needs buildings.
The Golgi body receives newly formed materials and proteins from the Endoplasmic reticulum and sends them to the parts of the cell needed. This example is very similar to the city for many reasons. To get your package or letter (protein or other materials) to the post office (Golgi body) you might need to take a road (endoplasmic reticulum ).
