Describe Aeneas' entrance into Carthage and the circumstances of his first meeting with Dido.. Ancient History

Venus advises Aeneas to head to Carthage and greet the queen. He and his friend Achetes enter Carthage shrouded in a cloud that Venus has conjured to prevent them from being seen. As the two enter the town, they see a shrine to Juno and a mural depicting the Trojan War. As they reach Dido's palace, to their astonishment they meet their supposedly fallen comrades asking Dido for aid in rebuilding their fleet. Dido grants their request and asks to meet their leader (Aeneas)
