The first part of our journey has been very difficult. Steep and challenging, especially for Elijah. Though no complaint passed his lips.
Mei kept guard behind us. I think she would fling herself at anyone who would dare follow us.
From our vantage this morning we could make out three groups coalescing on the path for that footbridge over the gorge.
We have the advantage of a couple days on them, maybe more by tomorrow.
And more good news, Jordan’s group was nowhere in sight. Nor could Tomas see them from the heights further on, where he has found the perfect spot for us to pass the night in safety.
That is, if we can get there before night falls.
