As long as the sun glistens from the sky in the torrid expanse, you have to dig yourself in and rest. During the second half of the 21st century, entire stretches of land in the tropics have become uninhabitable. The blazing heat is unbearable. Even most insects have given up, and only scavengers like you keep risking their lives here, even though no one but you would dare come alone.
The small engine for your life support suit hums reassuringly, but your faithful dromedary seems strangely nervous. Maybe it senses the ghosts of the former inhabitants.
Only at night it cools down a bit. Time to set off with your one-person caravan (third slider). Maybe turn on the transistor radio (fourth slider) to feel not so alone. Out here it only receives one station, which – even though far away from Asia - always plays the same Indian song.
Could be worse ...
