There once was a little village located in a very dry and sandy place. A place in which one would believe is an uninhabitable, a place which resembled a desert. One might ask oneself how could a village spring from such nothingness, but this area was surprisingly heavily populated across many small villages, all started by a nomadic people who settled there when the conditions were favorable for life to come forth .
