Culture clash in middle-earth! It's a nice glimpse into Aragorn's travels. It's a good example how different backgrounds give totally different perceptions of the same situation. 'They had a ball game' - seems Aragorn has yet to learn a bit about the women of the desert.

Author's Response: Thanks. I've wanted to delve into Harad ever since reading Nieriel Raina's "A Torturous Predicament Called 'Entertainment'," which I recommend highly.

As I said in my mail, I loved this. A wonderful story about Harad. Just what I always wished for - there is a lot of "colourful" tradition here, very good descriptions and already the opening paragraph had me in stitches. Aragorn is the proverbial tourist - totally useless on his own, because he doesn't know his way around (and doesn't know the dangers, or the language) and his guide takes blatant advantage of that:)

Author's Response: Thanks. I had a lot of fun writing this (and I was being a tourist myself at the time).
