The inhabitants of the city of Constantia were so bothered by the mud upon which their city was built that they all moved to towers. And yet the mud kept rising and staining their glamorous city, reminding them of far less noble origins than what they liked to tell themselves. Those who could afford it turned their homes into moving towers, perhaps in the hope that they could finally ignore what lay under them. The others learned the typical pose of the place: as if something very smelly and disgusting was right under their nose. To this day, even if abandoned, the city of Constantia keeps moving and spinning while the mud keeps smearing it. It is a fight that is greater than the people who fought it.
