It was strange to see other human beings going about everyday tasks. Such sights seem like forever ago.
We have entered the valley which we found dotted with small farms, and a town or small city rises from its center.
Much of the activity hereabouts deals with bringing water up from the river.
The Captain discovered why. The irrigation ditches are empty, the river being too low to feed them.
My concern grew. What would be their reaction if they knew Elijah was responsible?
We pushed on into the town. And there found an inn.
We plan to stay a few days, as Elijah has now told us he plans to end his fast in four days.
He needs rest.
