They dipped below the thundery clouds, gliding high above the Zambezi Valley, towards the escarpment, to an exact point on the horizon. This was where (according to their information) the baboon was located, and THIS was the place that the ultimate Flea vs. Baboon itching contest would take place!

What a surprise for the stork to be suddenly violated by the five cheeky fleas! He was suddenly five cheeky fleas and ten (of his biggest) feathers lighter. In a new twist to the adventure, the fleas had stolen ten of his feathers and it seemed as though they were trying to use them as wings. Before the stork knew it they had disappeared far below. Unhappy with them hitching a free ride, he was now unhappy that they had gone… he had enjoyed listening to their wild tales and adventures. The storks continued on to their (probably quite unhappy by now) wives.

This baboon is completely un-itchable! He sits all day meditating on his log, thinking deep thoughts about  life. He’s not bothered much by hunger (there’s always someone who will drop by with some food in return for his sound advice), he’s not bothered by the hot sun, he always has plenty of water to drink, and he’s not IN THE LEAST BIT BOTHERED by little bugs and things that try to itch him. In fact he used to have a bunch of fleas and nits and other bugs, but they went off to live somewhere else out of frustration and a lack of self worth.

At last, THIS is the reason the fleas are here. The reputation of a certain baboon on the Zambezi River has found it’s way to the fleas. No normal baboon, this one has travelled extensively  in the East, and studied Zen, which is is a school of Mahayana Buddhism that originated in China during the Tang dynasty as Chán. It was strongly influenced by Taoism, and developed as a distinguished Chinese style of Buddhism. From China, Chán spread south to Vietnam, northeast to Korea and east to Japan, where it became known as Japanese Zen. Apparently.

Now we know what they’re capable of, what exactly are they doing here?! Why are they illegally hitch-hiking on a Saddle Billed Stork? Were they taking part in the Flea Conference (or were they simply pretending to take part in it?) Did they KNOW the storks would fly through at that exact time?! All these questions and so few answers!
