Just after sunrise the men have their breakfast and then begin their day in the field outside the town. The women and young children wind their way through the narrow, twisting streets and alleys toward a dusty square at the center of town. Each carries a jug to be filled at the communal well.

There is an air of excitement this morning as the women fill their jugs and exchange news and gossip by the well. Today is market day, and in addition to the craftsman shops clustered around the well, farmers and merchants have set up temporary booths and stalls. Everyone hope to visit the storyteller, who sojourning with a caravan at the edge of town…
