Elijah and I went ashore to follow up the lead that P brought to us yesterday. I was struck by how few people were walking about – given the size of the buildings and the sprawl of the city in all directions, there should have been a teeming population everywhere we turned.
It went a long way to explain the man power shortages down at the port.
And our arrival at the city hospital answered the other question we hadn’t thought to ask. Why?
P had heard that this hospital was run by some followers of Hamashiach. And so it proved to be true.
We were not allowed in, but they came out to us.
Thus we learned about the plague.
