“That’s it,” Lena exclaimed, “even the best laid plans are bolluxed by this virus.”

“How’s that?” Duncan asked.

“Our Africa Safari is cancelled.”

“That can’t be a surprise.”

“I’m not surprised, but it’s official now.”

“I know you’re disappointed, but we’ll go another year. The elephants, giraffes, lions, and rhinos will still be there.”

“You’d think so, but I heard a tiger caught the virus.”

“In a zoo, from his handler. That doesn’t mean that wild African animals won’t be around if we go in a year or two.”

“I hope you’re right! I want to visit Africa one day.”
