Amiy lives by himself on the edge of the biggest desert on earth, the Sahara. Neither himself nor his nephews know exactly how old he is. Not very old he once told me. His little house does not have any furniture. His clothes are hanging on nails in the clay walls. He used to have many goats back in the days, but the droughts where strong and one by one he lost all of them. He doesn’t need too much to live. Some water and dates is all he needs to continue with the slow life next to the big desert.
