The boat docks, and soon after the passengers disembark. Omari moves quickly from the boat; followed by Vespasiano, he makes his way with great urgency along the north along the harbor, paying no attention to the many vendors of foods and trinkets spaced along the beach. He annoys people as he hurries. He has a long way to go - it takes him a half hour to make his way to his destination. Where the beach ends, he climbs up onto a path that leads over a rocky spur on the edge of the island, then down the other side to a smaller harbor. Coming to a warehouse upon the water, near the base of the mountain upon which sits the Castle of the Angels, Omari pounds on the door. It is opened at once, by a young boy. Omari does not speak to him, but instead pushes past and into the warehouse.
Vespasiano need not watch for very long. Within minutes, Omari steps out, obviously much calmer. He has a bundle in his arms, which he puts down at his feet. He looks out at the sea, takes a deep breath, spreads his arms wide and appears to be enjoying the sun. The door opens again. A young man steps out, greets Omari. Omari says a few solemn words to him, then points in the direction he has just come. The man runs off.
(Obviously, at this point, if Vespasiano wishes to waylay the man, I may need to update the other post).
Omari opens his bundle, showing that it is a prayer carpet. He lays it upon the ground, directs himself so that he faces generally southeast, and begins to pray.
If Vespasiano wishes to continue waiting, he will see Omari finish, then re-enter the warehouse.
