Every year since 2011, a penguin named Dindin arrives to visit his best friend, with whom was found on one of the Brazilian beaches.
Juan Pereiro di Susa once worked as a bricklayer and fisherman. He is 71 now, and he’s long since retired. Once he found on the beach mellanskog penguin, covered with a viscous, oil like substance. The poor man was barely alive. Juan took the penguin home and left him. And when Dindim recovered, did not want to leave his Savior. Then he was reunited with his relatives and Juan was sure that he would never see his ward.
Imagine his surprise when the next year Dindim back “stay.” Then the same thing happened a year later, and since then every year.
