Since airplanes did not exist, people moved around using prayers, they went from one land to another and returned early, before dawn.
In old audio recordings, the voices of pastors speak of the mythical existence of witches and their travels. In the daily life of a woman the magic of her tales begin to materialize as night falls. Night is the time when travel is possible.
