“This is where the Tropic of Capricorn runs through Australia. As the line was crossed I was in the tropics,” he explained.
Eight asked, “Was there a line on the ground?”
Uncle replied, “No but there was a sign.”
Four, “Weren’t you scared?”
Uncle smiled, “Of course not. I even had my photo taken on the line. I had one leg in the tropics and one on the other side of the line.”
Four was worried, “Lions are dangerous. Did it bite you?”
Now uncle was confused.
