The Lost City of Gedi by @Owaah

“A leading theory is that the people of Gedi fled because of receding water levels in their wells. All the wells in the ruins seem to have been deepened over time.

But epidemics are merciless assassins, and the people would have been too frightened to have time to bury their dead. Perhaps there are mass graves lying somewhere within the forest around it. At least one excavation found a mass grave with infant remains, but that’s just about it.”

Kama unaeza afford gari nunua!

Because I am just tired.

Anyone with me?
