Far from the plaza and in an untenanted portion of the great dead city I had little trouble in reaching the hills beyond.
I shouted above the sudden noise. She looked away from me downhill. The people were coming out of their houses, astonished.
When the amphitheater had cleared I crept stealthily to the top and as the great excavation lay far from the plaza.
I can compare it to nothing but a large door mat, ornamented at the edges with little tinkling tags.
At first I regarded little but the road before me, and then abruptly my attention was arrested by something that was moving rapidly.
