Behind the forest, in the valley, below the mountains, next to the river, was a small house, inside a much larger one.
This habit of building houses inside houses had grown up during a time of strange government taxation policies….not worth explaining, but those who have dealt with the history of taxation around the world will not be surprised.
The water in the river was crystal clear and looked quite drinkable,
The land was fertile and lush with herbs, crops, fruit trees and wildlife.
Life in the cities was equally tranquil and idyllic – a very different type of city life and experience, unusual you might think. And then, you might imagine….how this could be!
