"The World is at peace. It is so quiet. You look up just to watch a couple of leaves of a gingko tree move slightly in the wind. A bit or rustle and quiet.
You sigh by pure happiness, the smell of fresh sweet ground stirs around you and then the ground starts to shake.
Every second harder and harder, the west wind brings a sweet, musty smell. It must be the elephants, you think. You look towards the west; massive silhouettes of an elephant army are shaping through the dusty dry land. They are thumping, and trumpeting, about their journey.
You close your eyes, trying to relax, but you feel big heavy squeeze and push – everything quietens down. You open your eyes and you realise you are in a cellar, a dark, brown, terracotta, cellar, which smells full of damp earth, roots and peat. You can see a bit of hard cherry wood beam frames holding it all together above you. You see a spider. You come closer to look at him and he is looking right at you. He sees you with his many tiny eyes. You wake up and you have an irresistible taste for Pu Er tea."
