After months of travel, you’ve arrived at Duonia, home to the famous temple that’s the destination of your pilgrimage. The walk from the welcome center to the temple isn’t a long one … but there’s a problem. Can you outsmart the city’s imposed tax and make it to the temple without paying a fee? Daniel Finkel shows how.
