We passed Súchel Head. These are the lands of the coloured Ssú. To be on the safe side we stayed well out in the channel, although most of us spent at least a little time gazing south into the jungle hoping to catch a glimpse of the creatures. After we left Súchel Head we were in open waters. Our supplies were still in good shape. The Shén have a wonderful melon, which when kept in a water barrel, will keep the water potable and free of parasites, but it does give the water a slightly acidic taste.
