Two days later after meeting and talking with Mr. Meerkat our feet were exhausted from all that walking. M and little Sara were starting to complain a little bit and it was up to me to now find some better transportation for the vast African landscape. As a charter member of the Institute of Better Science, I knew just what to do. Dromedary Camels are a well known means of transportation in hot desert climates. So off we went to the local Dromedary Camel Rental dealership much to the delight of M and little Sara.
So we were off again in search of the famous Bug Lady! As we rode I told little Sara all about the Bug Lady. She listened with wonder and amazement. "Daddy, she really lets the bugs crawl on her while she takes the photo's?", Sara asked from high atop the Camel. She sure does Sara, truly a fearless and brave woman the Bug Lady is.
Little Sara was the first to spot our next African Critter friend and it was a good thing she did. "Look daddy!"
She screamed and pointed. "It's a Giraffe!"
"That's right Sara," I answered, "now walk your Camel over close to that tree and climb up so you can talk to him." That is just what little Sara did and this was their conversation.
"Hello little girl," said Giraffe. "Hello Mr. Giraffe!", said Sara, "we are on an adventure to find the Bug Lady, do you know who she is?" "Of, course I know the Bug Lady!" said Mr. Giraffe. Sara continued on, "Mr. Meerkat, said we could find her near here, have you seen her?"
"Near here!" laughed Mr. Giraffe, "she is no where near here little one". "The Bug Lady lives far to the south and though I know her well I haven't seen her in these parts for a long time!"
"You have to be very careful of Meerkats, little one, they are quite the jokesters and will often lead travelers astray with their cunning deception!"
"Oh my", exclaimed Sara, "Thank you for your help and honesty, we will travel south now and we will surely tell the Bug Lady of your kindness and help."
Sara slid down the Heelu tree and told M and I the news.
Meerkats! Discovery should do a special on those crafty troublemakers! Stay tuned blog friends, there are many encounters and exciting adventures to come as we search Africa for the famous Bug Lady!
