The herders have kindly found you a merchant who is leaving Ur for Nippur. He will take you most of the way back home to Sippar. The merchant is called Zimri and he has bundles of wool on the back of a cart pulled by oxen.

Early the next morning, before the sun gets too hot, you set off along the banks of the river. You are very happy that you have learnt so much about being a trader and look forward to telling your father about all your adventures.
