Trucks were blowing dust ahead of them all. Farmers were walking slowly in deep sand till 9:00 but an old man was sitting there without moving. I was so tired that I couldn’t go on.

There were no more vehicles and the people coming on foot were also very few. But the old man was still sitting there. Where are you from me She asked Sand, she said to Carlo and smiled. This was his original city of residence, so he was happy to mention the name of the city and smiled. I was there taking care of animals.

Yes of course it will fly but It is better not to think about other animals. He said, if you have taken rest then I will go.
