As soon as they heard their motor boat approaching they would scramble to get their hats, guns and stood by the railing looking important and alert. There is a heat wave and the temperature must have reached 40 degrees. Most unpleasant. The day passed slowly, but we were relaxed and needed the rest. That is until Javed connected ...
