THE UNREST- there he comes making a deep loud low sound,

I felt a bit uneasy… and the jeep trembled or I was trembling?:D

" Hakuna matata, pole, pole. Hakuna matata"

-There is not problem, calm, calm. There is not problem-



A INTRANQÜILIDADE- láááá vem ele fazendo um som baixo alto e profundo,

eu senti-me um bocado inquieta... e o jipe tremeu ou era eu tremendo? :D

" Hakuna matata, pole, pole. Hakuna matata"

-Não há problema, tranqüilo, tranqüilo. Não há problema-

    I am surprised at how narrow he is! From the side view I would expect football player shoulders... the better to squeeeeze into small places? Like openings in jeep windows? hahaha.
