Town police rousted us from our sleep this morning. We had chosen a place too close to the town for their liking. Thus we were a little earlier on the road than planned.
It worked to our advantage as we made good progress being the only ones on the road at that hour.
Ahead we could see a series of villages nestled along the road surrounded with fields under cultivation.
I debated with Elijah whether or not to leave the road and go around them. He felt no need or compulsion to do so. I wanted to avoid anything like yesterday that could hold us back again.
We concluded that walking in the fields would bring unwanted attention to ourselves.
