You wave goodbye to the shepherds and push your way through the crowds towards the temple of Ishtar. Lots of traders are moving through the crowds trying to sell their goods. You squat down by a statue of an Assyrian king and ponder what to do next. Suddenly a shadow falls across you and you look up to find a man towering over you. Your mouth drops open in surprise. It's your father. He raises an eyebrow to question what you are doing here. Overcoming your shock, you stand up and describe your adventures. Your father laughs and tells you that he is in Ashur visiting a cousin. He may send you on another trading journey when you both get home to Sippar.
