2. The end of the story. We have included other unfinished texts, but then we normaly had older version or at least some summarys to work out a conclusion. Here we have only some thin statements of what was to follow.

Nonetheless I for the time being vote for trying if we can handle the issues of not. If we feel the result is not good enough we can still skip it. But I think it is at least worth a trial.uimg
1. Geography - I think it should be vague.
1. The mystery of the story is rather inttiguing
