Hola Ground Control, this is Zeebra on the Magic Carpet, presently in a Holding Pattern over Latitude Zero, though we are veering slightly north and slightly south.  Skies have been clear with no turbulence, and presently we have one passenger who seems to be content with her travels so far.

Would you like to see a bit of what we’ve done so far?

We’ve toured my friends’ amazing gardens and attended the private Frog Concert above the dragon-fruit farm, and soon we will walk a bamboo labrynthe.   Perhaps later we’ll trek to see a ‘fixer upper’ that’s located only a hiccup north of latitude zero.

While hovering in a calm pocket of clouds, we wanted to send a report and —-

Ooops! Our client just spotted a new species – Gotta go!!
