The Cradle of Mankind.
It’s the most important historical site in the world, where 5 levels of humanity have been discovered in third various stages of evolution. It’s where the oldest human remains were found, and where human life began.
The day we arrived here was the day chaos commenced for our attempts to return home. It was quite sobering to sit in the stillness of the gorge, learning about the layers of humanity that were wiped out by natural disasters.
My biggest lesson that day was: though we all return to dust, humanity will continue on, and probably at a better level.
It now seems like a morbid thought, but somehow it brought me peace when all I wanted to do was scream.
