What more shall I tell you? The town consists of Saracens and idolaters with a few Nestorian Christians. The people use paper (or salt) for money and the idolaters burn their dead. They trade in zinc, oil, lamb and peat. Their king is very wealthy and pays a tribute to the Great Khan. There is a sort of monkey that lives in the forests that sounds like a parrot but is unable to bend its knees.
