The next morning you set out with the old man towards Kanesh. He has lived in the mountains all his life and knows all the tracks and passes. Within a few days, he points his finger towards the horizon and you can just make out a high mound with buildings. It is the city of Nesha. Outside the walls will be the merchant colony of Kanesh. You look forward to meeting up with Nur-Shamash and telling your adventures. You also know that your father will be proud that you have learnt so much about trade and travelling.
