In 2011 Joao Pereira de Souza came across a penguin with a broken leg lying on a beach in Brazil. The bird was covered with oil and also had an injury to its back.
Mr de Souza took care of the bird. He removed the oil and rubbed ointment onto the wound. He gave the penguin the name Dindim.
When he was fully recovered Dindim was ringed and released into the ocean to make the 4,000 kms journey back to Patagonia.
For four years, from 2012 to 2015, Dindim returned in June or July to visit Mr de Souza.
In 2016 the months of June and July came and went and Dindim failed to appear.
Mr de Souza did not expect to see his friend again, but on the morning of 1st August much to everyone's surprise Dindim was back, and patiently waiting at the fence.
If only Dindim could talk, what tales he might tell.
