Cost of Dining With Hannibal: Week 1
It's not every day you get to dine with a psychopathic cannibal. And as a lawyer, you find new meaning in the question: Who is being served? For the first course, you head toward our northern neighbor, specifically to the middle province, smack over our border. It is there, west of the provincial capital, that you see the lust in Lecter's eyes as he contemplates the delicacies in front of him. Clockwise from southwest to northwest, he salivates over, then rejects, a chewy part of a forest dweller, a small but inedible human decoration, and a large but possibly troublesome human joint. But he soon perks up when he spies a meatier morsel -- and it's part of you! Alas, it is impossible to paddle the rapids to try to escape. And despite appearances, you carry no weapon. But you knew this came with the territory. Salt, please?
So what's the name of the river you've come to?
