For the fleet, this was the way out and the Flee was the way in. Both sides of the canal have beautiful houses of bright colours, with gardens that are surrounded by evergreen hedges. I saw women there wearing tunics of felt similar to writing felt. As in Staveren, the girls were decorated with golden crowns on their heads and rings around their arms and ankles.

This is a ‘mare’ or lake with an island on which the black and brown men abide, like they do at Lydasburg. The burg maiden of Forana told me that the burg masters visit them daily, to teach them what true freedom is and how people ought to live gently together in order to gain the blessing of Wralda's spirit. Should any of them be interested and able to understand, he would be able to stay until he was fully educated. That was done to elevate the foreign folks and to win allies everywhere.
