We decided to go camping. We had too much luggage and not enough people to carry it, so we left most of it behind to return and pick up the next day. My father's friends' shoes were in one of the bags and he could not walk without them. We went to pick the luggage up in the morning.

"Be quick," said the owner of the shoes, "I cannot live without those shoes."

A little later, he became thirsty. "I am thirsty and I have my own way of drinking water which is very good. The water only lessens by a few drops while you are fulfilling your thirst." He picked up the bottle, took off the cap and filled it with water. You know how your arms shake after carrying such heavy luggage– he nearly spilled one glass of water on the ground. He repeated that several times.

"So you see, the water must be saved while camping." But the bottle was already empty and we were still thirsty.

Finally we arrived. After putting on his shoes, the man who was trying to save the water became energized and said, "With these shoes, I can walk around the world." He happily started walking. At the beginning of the road he said, "I think that the heel of my shoe has broken off."

A little later, "The stitches of my shoes are torn."

A little later he said, "My shoes are completely wrecked. I will sue the company that made them. I am shocked, I bought them when I was student. Can you believe it, not even 25 years have passed and they are ruined? What a shame!"

And when it was time for us to return home from our walk, leaving most of the food behind, my father's friend also left behind his tourist shoes with a note stuck on them: "You may use these."
