You take advantage of a boat being paddled back to the reed cutters to get a ride. Soon you are safely on dry land watching the men cut the reeds to be made into mats. You load some of the reeds onto your shoulder and help carry them away from the edge of the river. Adding them to a pile already drying in the sun, you watch as men and women split the reeds into thin strips. Others use these to make mats, weaving the strips in and out of others to build up large sheets. Many rolled mats are already made. You offer to help carry them to the temple.

Do you go by boat or by foot?
