A desire for travel, however, prompted him to become a shepherd instead. He's contented, but then he dreams twice about hidden treasure, and a seer tells him to follow the dream's instructions: got to Egypt's pyramids, where he fill find a treasure. Santiago makes it to the pyramids and there learns where his fortune is actually to be found.
