While flying over Uganda, their plane clipped a telegraph wire and plunged onto the crocodile-infested shores of the Nile. As the Hemingways camped out near the wreckage, false reports of their deaths made world headlines.

When a strange man, whether on the way to war or just passing by with this livestock, comes to your isolated settlement, it is vital to receive him with utmost hospitality. He can freely partake in your food and water and use the shelter of your defensive kraal (the encircled enclosure made of strong stumps and thorn branches surrounding the huts and the pens for your livestock). As evening settles, one of your wives or daughters will accompany this man to his hut and be his companion for the night.
