Nile

The boy reached the river bank in the morning. He saw the boats tied up at the shore.

A boat going upstream sailed by, and the boy caught a glimpse of a man who looked like his brother. But the boat passed quickly and he could not see the man clearly. Maybe it was his brother going home for 'shemu', the harvest season.

Should he go downstream towards the sea, or follow the boat upstream towards home?
