“In Ancient Turkey”

“Dev opened his eyes and was surprised to find himself on the top of a plateau covered with rich steppes. Gently undulating lowlands stretched out below him. On the horizon rose jagged-faced and sharp-pinnacled mountains. Off to the left, a huge jade green lake spread out its calm waters. In the distance he could hear the steady outbreathing of a waterfall. Thick oak trees with dense crowns dotted the landscape. Exquisitely delicate lavender-and-white salvia ornamented the ground. Alpine grasses, feathery and flexible, grew to the height of the friends’ knees and rustled gently in the wind. The call of a strange bird, which sounded like the grating movements of a wooden wind-up toy, pierced the silence of the place.”
