A) You are living during the Old Kingdom Period in Ancient Egypt. You are an Egyptian fisherman from what was once Lower Egypt, before king Menes united the two parts of Egypt. You begin your day by casting your little papyrus boat off the Nile delta into the cool waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The sun is out in full force today. It beats down on your already burnt neck and shoulders. You smile and think to yourself how good the sun-god Ra has been to warm this fertile region, known as the Black Land. After hours of fishing you return with your nets empty, not as joyful as you had been earlier in the day. You grab the long oars that lay along the side of your boat and begin to row toward the mouth of the mighty Nile River. After some time, your arms begin to ache from rowing against the current but you realize that you will soon be able to anchor your papyrus craft and try your luck with the nets again. You say a quick prayer to the mighty Nile with the hope that it will bless you with a school of unsuspecting fish. As you wait you splash some of the cool water on your face. You see that the sun is at its highest point in the sky, and think to yourself that this is beginning to look like a wasted day. Your gaze falls on a family of ducks paddling slowly across the surface of the water without a care in the world.

DO YOU?
