The mystery deepens since Colonel Fawcett disappeared  almost 100 years ago in the deadliest of jungles somewhere close to the lost city of Z. Never to be heard from again.  :lol:

No wait, I think I ran into his party at a local watering hole, the Allview Inn bar and restaurant?

Oh damn !  .... I thought you where going to say  ....  " and they lived happily ever-after .  "

 

Did you read the rest of the story  ?   They where drunk ... one , so drunk (or just such an arsehole ) that he  tried to force their  local  mixed ethnicity ' digging helper '  to drink an unknown liquid that he said was beer or similar .... or perhaps poison . The poor man sniffed it , refused to drink, he was 'ordered' to , escaped ran away, was chased, bought back and 'ordered' to drink it again .    But he ran away again .... and they laughed .

 

 I also liked the story about the bird   that placed a magic stone melting leaf on a rock ,  came back the next day and the leaf had dissolved the rock into a little bowl, that collected water and the bird drank it  .... what remarkable bird behaviour !  

 

- especially since it was next to a river , and it could have got a drink there  .... or any other place every other animal in that place drinks from .... without having to 'soften stone' to make their own  water bowl . 

 

;)

 

 

ow I know what you are gonna say  ...... why does the bird need to make a NEW bowl for a  drink , why not go back to that last one bowl it made , or the ones all its ancestors before it made ?

 

Well, I am ahead of you on that one , you see I have not mentioned the ancient Peruvian  'rock trowelling' bird yet - the nemesis of  the Peruvian water-bowl making bird  .... he goes around trowelling over the depressions in the rock / bird water cups  and making them flat again .
