African Lunch

Unexpected guests for a bush pilot



You are a bush pilot in the African veldt.
You fly in some critical medical supplies and enjoy
a quick lunch at the hospital.
You are eager to make your next appointment.
You return to the plane to find that the only shade
around has become very popular ...
