    The old man was the last one to leave his town as he was busy taking care of his animals. For him, his animals where his only family and he wanted to take proper care of them before leaving the town. He was 72 years old and he had already walked 12 km and was very tired to walk any further. The old man was wearing steel-rimmed spectacles and gray-dusty clothes and his face was black and dusty. He did not also look like a shepherd.
