Still, I walked around with a faint hope that there might be an old town somewhere, and before long I came to the outskirts of the town. Even the houses, let alone the townscape, were sparse. Sunflowers were blooming on the side of the road. Despite my disappointment, they all stretched out their backs and bloomed in spite of my disappointment. I felt as if they were cheering me up in my despair.
