The captain refuses to listen. It is too late to turn back and the water will have to be rationed.

The boat has been sailing close to the coast but there are no villages. Iddin-Sin suggests that they land and look for a well but the sailors laugh. There is only desert. However, by noon the next day, under the hot sun everybody is becoming worried by the lack of drinking water. Your mouth is very dry and you can hardly speak.

Then one of the sailors sees some cattle on the shore. There are herders with them. The boat is brought close to the land and you jump into the shallow water along with several sailors. The herders are taking their cattle to Ur. After bargaining with them, you swap some grain for a few skins of water.

Do you go back with the herders to Ur or go on to Dilmun?

go back go on
