After reading Damon and Pythias I realized that the value of friendship portrayed in the story is also relative to me As Damon had faith trust and honor I remember such a friend who had faith trust and honor in me Such a friend is incomparable to all wealth and power this life offers From what I remember it was back in 1993 - I was on one of my expeditions in the misty jungles of Africa I befriended a native there who spoke English fairly well We drove through the jungles in my Jeep searching for ancient pieces of art I was an art historian looking for further roots that influenced Egyptian art We began to know each other pretty well as time passed I learned his name was Mutopa He had so much faith in me he was willing to take my place in the time of deep trouble It was only couple months after my arrival to Africa Immediately I set out to work I was anxious to discover hidden truths of the ancient world Due to my careless wandering I strayed into the Uzulu territory The Uzulu was a fierce tribe that sometimes practices cannibalism for sacrificial rites I accidentally knocked over a statue of their goddess as I backed up with the Jeep It was a beautiful piece of art carved from diorite Luckily the idol did not break but the stones set in the eyes fell out and broke as it hit one of the rocks lying on the ground I held the broken pieces in my hands examining them closely against the sun It was nothing exquisite just semiprecious lapis-lazulis I had a couple at camp myself Then suddenly as I looked up the Uzulu members were close upon me They spoke in an unusual language I could not recall Fortunately Mutopa understood a little He said They are saying their goddess Ishtar will bring great wrath upon
