a river called Hussain

If you’re lost in the jungle, the adage says, then look for the river.

Getting lost in the jungle is all too easy of course. It’s all green and it all looks the same. If you are all alone and rescue is beyond reach, then “pick a direction and walk until you hit a stream. Follow the watercourse downstream until you hit a river. Once you get to a sizeable river, follow it downstream until you find someone. The bigger the river, the more chance of finding civilization.”

(Caveat potor: avoid streams of sluggish water, or you may need to boil the water first as you go further down from the upstream).

when you're down at the end of the river delta, there comes a point where it's hard to define whether it should be called the river, or if it should be considered part the Ocean. a mysterious and sweet place.
