Year 5 Day 20
The shape of the continent I’m on is interesting, but I have time – altogether too much of it, to be honest – and it seems just as reasonable to study the area around the gather lake. Besides, I might spot some of the People coming to the gather. So that’s what I’ve been doing the last few days, and I’ve spotted three groups coming in. I think one is Lion’s, though I was not sure of the other two.
It’s a long lake, oriented north and south, with uplands on either side. Some of them look volcanic, and I suspect the lake is part of a rift valley. It’s quite a distance northeast of my initial landing site, and even of the waterfall that first allowed me to use its energy to counterbalance levitation. The distance these people cover in their migrations is astonishing.
Today I found a fourth group – Rain Cloud’s. They saw me flying, and started waving and jumping in excitement.
Jarn’s Journal is the fictional journal of a fictional human-like alien, Jarn. He was stranded on Africa 125,000 years ago when the starship he designed proved to be lacking a few standard safety features. A longer version of this post can be found on my main blog; the journal to date is on my author site. Jarn’s story is part of the remote background of my science fiction universe, the Jarnian Confederation.
