Day 124 and we are in the grasslands now.
It is much cooler traveling now. The camels and pack animals are filling out some since they have good grazing now. Watering places are closer together now so we don't have to carry as much.
I can hear the people in the camp now as they call to us, though I can't always make out all the words. They sound like they are glad to see us coming though.
I have been watching the goats come down the mountain. They are very close to the base now. Looking up, I think I can see a very large goat standing close to the crest of the mountain. Is this the wise one I need to speak to? We will see when the time comes.
I'm glad we have made it this far with so few losses. I have heard of very few that got lost of fell. I have sent camels and drivers back to check on them.
I am calling a halt to travel today so everyone can rest and recover more from the desert stretch of the journey. We will camp beside this pool of cool water.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
Hugs and love to all.
