             I stopped to let the car cool off and to
            study the map. I had expected to be near
            my objective by now, but everything still
            seemed alien to me. I was only five when
            my father had taken me abroad, and that
            was eighteen years ago. When my mother
            had died after a tragic accident, he did
            not quickly recover from the shock and
            loneliness. Everything around him was
            full of her presence, continually re-
            opening the wound. So he decided to
            emigrate. In the new country he became
            absorbed in making a new life for the
            two of us, so that he gradually ceased to
            grieve. He did not marry again and I was
            brought up without a woman's care; but
            I lacked for nothing, for he was both father and mother to me. He always meant
            to go back one day but not to stay. His roots and mine had become too f.mp3ly
            embedded in the new land. But he wanted to see the old folk again and to visit
            my mother's grave. He became mortally ill a few months before we had planned
            to go and, when he knew that he was dying, he made me promise to go on
            my own.
            I hired a car the day after landing and bought a comprehensive book of maps,
            which I found most helpful on the cross country journey, but which I did not
            think I should need on the last stage. It was not that I actually remembered
            anything at all. But my father had described over and over again what we should
            see at every milestone, after leaving the nearest town, so that I was positive I
            should recognize it as familiar territory. Well, I had been wrong, for I was
            now lost.
            I looked at the map and then at the milometer. I had come ten miles since
            leaving the town, and at this point, according to my father, I should be looking
            at f.mp3s and cottages in a valley, with the spire of the church of our village
            showing in the far distance. I could see no valley, no f.mp3s, no cottages and no
            church spire--only a lake. I decided that I must have taken a wrong turning
            somewhere. So I drove back to the town and began to retrace the route, taking
            frequent glances at the map. I landed up at the same corner. The curious thing
            was that the lake was not marked on the map. I felt as if I had stumbled into a
            nightmare country, as you sometimes do in dreams. And, as in a nightmare,
            there was nobody in sight to help me. Fortunately for me, as I was wondering
            what to do next, there appeared on the horizon a man on horseback, riding in
            my direction. I waited till he came near, then I asked him the way to our old
            village. He said that there was now no village. I thought he must have mis-
            understood me. so I repeated its name. This time he pointed to the lake. The
            village no longer existed because it had been submerged, and all the valley too.
            The lake was not a natural one, but a man made reservoir.
