Continuing our journey, we said, “The traveler should keep moving.” As we reached the small lake in Barla, the rain turned into a storm, and we became part of the steppe grass. We were completely soaked, transforming into a vibrant savanna. Our internal deserts, longing for water, rain, and blessings, turned green. Hills seemed to urge the next ones to guard us and bid farewells.

Some envied us, while others found it peculiar that we crossed mountains and arrived in such weather. Boarding the waiting buses, we listened to the echoes of our fatigue.
