Chapter 312 Arrival at the city of Anbelk
On the 9th day, Jin and the others slowly departed.
The reason for the delay was because the people of Hatata had come as a large crowd to bid farewell to them.
Everyone who had laid eyes on the pump Jin made yesterday could tell how helpful it is.
As the mayor, the business association chief and the inn association chief came in turns, the departure time which was supposed to be at 8 am turned to 10 am.
Among all that, what made Jin the most happy were the words from the gatekeeping girl.
“Thank you, onii-san.”
With just that one expression of gratitude, Jin had started to like this city. He really likes children. Not in a weird way.
The party was advancing down the highway at about 8 kilometers per hour.
They had their lunch on the way.
Today’s objective was to reach Anbelk. The journey is of about 30 kilometers so it takes around 4 hours to reach. They would probably reach there by half past two in the afternoon.
They had also considered going a bit further to Rindau the very day but Reinhart said that they were already in their own land, and that there was no need to hurry.
“Good grief, who was it again that said that they wanted to depart early from Astan?”
Matheus was exasperated.
“Don’t say that. When I think about how this journey will come to an end very soon, I just feel a bit unsatisfied.”
“Well, there’s only Rindau, Fonde, Riare and Roizart. We will be returning in 4 days. Do your best being sad in parting.”
But it was Matheus who took the last laugh.
Jin was gazing at the scenario outside the window.
Hatata’s city was quite dry but the same could be said about these areas. Apart from the succulent plants which grow on dry lands, there were just boulders and sand everywhere.
When he said that to Reinhart,
“Ah, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that this is the most dry land on the highway route. The road we will be following after staying at Rindau today is so dry that it is even called ‘Trockenbeerenauslese’.”
“‘Trockenbeerenauslese’….That’s quite a name.”
“Yeah. But that too will probably be resolved due to the pump.”
And so Jin asks Reinhart,
“Won’t you build a canal for irrigation in Shouro empire?”
“Yeah, how about it?”
“But a proper source of river here…”
Reinhart did nod but he also pointed out the problem.
“I am not very knowledgeable in geography but if it’s you, Reinhart…”
It was a half lie. In Hourai island, the Sky golems had made quite a detailed elevation map and Jin was well aware that there were no source of river around here.
“It is a bit unlikely. There’s a canal near the capital.”
The capital, Roizart had two big lakes near it, Tosmo lake and Shuju lake and there was a canal.
One of the reason why Elsa participated in the golem boat race held in Potrock was because the Randall family’s territory included the Tosmo lake’s shore so she was quite familiar with boats from a young age.
(I wonder if I can transfer water here using a warp-gate…)
