In the Desert of Angad, heading into the Unknown Region; I tell Juan that Mahalath’s cat, Wobble, is simply friendly, but Juan says that the cat is too trusting, and, to prove his point, he introduces Wobble to his dog, Gulp. I say that Mahalath is going to go crazy; fortunately, Bakulebe turns up with a new train. After leaping on board, we break open Juan’s Special Reserve, to celebrate, and offer toast after toast to Bakulebe, our incredible train driver. Now, yelling, cheering, and bellowing at each other in excitement; singing wild Tzigani songs and dancing wild Tzigani dances, we thunder across the burning sands, as fast as we possibly can.
