People are very happy here and they work hard keeping their houses spick and span and their children's faces clean.

A week went by with no change ,people struggling along as best as they could.
The searing heat made them dizzy and fuzzy and finally they all fell in a sprawling heap at the bottom of the mound. they looked up at the rock.Nothing happened.

After the families had restored and rebuilt the village, andset up sailing clubs for the children, and scuba diving for the grandparents,they erected a bandstand and monument in the spot where the Dragon used to lay.Every year to mark the occasion, they would bring garlands of flowers and herbsand arrange them in a big circle. The children would have the day off school,for it was known as 'Water Dragon Day' and wearing the dragon masks that theyhad been working on all week, would skip and clap and sing.
