So far, so good.
One day into the wilderness and with the exception of a boggy area, we have made good progress.
Wild beasts appear to go out of their way to avoid us. Leastways I think they are there because I hear rustling in the undergrowth.
At one point we overtook two other travelers. They were not as fortunate. One had been wounded, fighting off a big cat. Elijah applied a balm and bound up his wound. They wanted to pay Elijah for his ministration, but he refused.
We kept company until a fork in our path. They headed east towards the coastal port. We kept on towards the interior.
Had the Purser and his family passed this way?
