Day 75

Well, I’ve found Isibis…..what’s left of it. I’d actually let myself think that there might still be some kind of settlement here. That the foundations of it may well have been laid down thousands of years ago, but that they were still used today.
No such thing can be seen.
Isibis is a collection of uninhabited ruins.
The story-teller in me wants to say that; with their defender gone, whatever they were fearful of finally reached the people of Isibis.
The realist in me says that it was probably drought that drove them away. There are plenty of greener placed to build a home than this dustbowl.
