Down in the wadi, in a wooden box, as the bedouins told, is a dangerous animal.

Superstition, the tourist says: we must catch it!

Oh no, the bedouins cry: dangerous!

If you are so afraid about it, why don´t you take a handgranate?

And fate takes its way...

one line:

An enlightened cosmopolitan ends up in a wooden box in the sahara!
