Along walk to water by Linda Sue Park Chapter 8 Salva's Story
Setting: south sudan Nya's father has decided that Akeer needed a doctor. So Nya and her mother had taken Akeer to the special place-a big white tent full of people who were sick or hurt. After 2 doses of medicine, Akeer was nearly her old self again-still thin and weak but able to laugh as Nya sat on the floor next to her cot and played a clapping game
Nya made the hot walk to the pound, she had to drink as soon as she got there
The lakes surface was calm, and once the boats had pulled away from the shore, there was not much to see-just water and more water. (the boats leaving)
They paddled for hours. The scenery and motion were so monotonous that Salva might have slept, except he was afraid that if he did, he might fall over the side.
Finally, the boats pulled up to an island in the middle of the river. This was where the fishermen of the Nile lived and worked.
In the morning, Salva was covored with bites. The worst ones were in the exact middle of his back, where he couldn't reach to scratch. Those he could reach, though, he scratched until they bled.
