 Christmas Puzzle 20.  THREE WISE KINGS

Three wise kings set forth from their hometowns to the town of Bethlehem bringing their gifts to the Holy Infant Jesus during the first Christmas.  They all started traveling at the same time.  The first wise king traveled south at 3 miles per hour.  The second wise king traveled west at 2.2 miles per hour.  The third wise king traveled north at 3.5 miles per hour.  After they traveled 8 hours, they met at one place east of Bethlehem.  When they had rested for a few hours, they traveled west together for 18 miles until they reached the town of Bethlehem, and paid homage to the Holy Infant Jesus.  What were the distances from Bethlehem to these three hometowns of the wise kings?  Take note that the routes taken by these kings may not be necessarily the shortest path to Bethlehem.

How many observe Christ's birthday!  How few, his precepts!  O! 'tis easier to keep holidays than commandments.
