I posted this because of a fantastic recollection Edwin has in the interview.





"Q: The animal that reminds you most of yourself and why?
A: Lion- Because when I was a kid I once got lost  in the bush in the late evening and I ended up spending the whole night in the bush at the age of 6 years. A  Lion guarded me the entire night and when I walked near the Buffalo or Elephant  it came close to me to protect me. It showed me all the way back to my village. My parents gave it a Goat to thank the Lion for keeping me safe. From then on whenever I see a Lion it reminds me of that day when the Lion saved my life."


I have never heard of such an event and frankly find it difficult to believe.

Fantasy of a child's recollection or actual event? What do you think.
