The entire Bijagos archipelago comprises 88 small blobs of land 20 – 30 miles off the Guinea-Bissau coast in West-Africa. A little group of 10 islands is occasionally visited by tourist to enjoy the tropical climate; photograph giant turtles and saltwater hippopotamus.
On one of the ‘never visited by tourists’ islands is a boulder. Nothing grows around it. Ordinarily it looks like a rocky outcrop. The boulder is unknown as no outsider has seen it on the full moon night after summer solstice when it is pure crystal with a sea-hippo encased in it. The tribals worship it as Gorto from Orion – The Savior.
