I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Famous last words

I walked through the moat, which has been turned into a very pretty park, and when I got hungry, I just went back to the ship.

Easier said than done, as it turned out. The moat is a pretty park, but once you are in it, there's no way out. At least none that I found. I wasn't walking that fast, but it took me almost an hour to get to the other end of it, and I had started to believe that I might never find my way out.

Those are not decorative stones, by the way, but actual cannonballs. You may beat your swords into plowshares, but they'll still have been to war.
