ALARM CALL

By John Yeo

We were exploring the remote dense African jungle, My colleagues and I had  a grant from our university to search for rare medicinal plants. Suddenly we were confronted with a raging torrent of water, a tributary to a very large river. There was no way around this obstacle. To continue our journey we would have to find a way across.
Then our local guide shimmied up a very large Baobab tree. Perched on a branch he made a very loud piercing whistling call, many times.
Shortly after a fleet of canoes arrived to ferry us to the other side.
