"I'm afraid to keep track!" Bongo laughs.  "We're still alive, so I'd say
that's a pretty good start."

Bongo turns to the shopkeeper.  "Do you know where this man went?" he asks.

The shopkeeper shrugs.  "I can't say for certain," he says, "though it
seems to me he went walking across the street, and up towards the East
Gate.  That's why I wonder whether he was some faerie or phantom made
by them."
