Staying in the open last night presented no problems. The heat of the day stayed with us, so it was comfortable.
Upon commencing our journey, we were surprised that the silence over the city was broken. Then we realized that the sounds were down in the dock area and most likely due to the offloading of containers from our ship.
The noise faded away as we increased our distance from the city.
We came across a stream which was flowing back towards the ocean. Elijah suggested that we follow it to its source, knowing that the home belonging to the Purser’s mother, is on a lake.
Before the setting of the sun, we had our first glimpse of the lake.
