Adventures in Egypt: The Mysterious Package
After a few hours looking around the tomb, the travellers realized it was getting late and they had to get back to Toronto. Mr. Carter was truly grateful to them for helping him. However, Hari was disappointed because it looked like this was another dead end with no clues to help him find his way home.
Just as they were leaving, Rayees came running with a package. It was wrapped up in papyrus and had obviously been this way for 3000 years. On the package were 4 symbols. Mr. Carter looked at it and smiled, he passed it to Hari. “For you” he said.
The symbols on the package read H-A-R-I. Mysteriously, someone three thousand years ago was expecting him here!
Hari opened the package as everyone inched closer. What was inside this package and how could anyone have known 3000 years ago that he would come? The papyrus was brittle and he opened it carefully. Inside it was a small statue of a bull with a note in Ancient Hieroglyphics which said: ‘May your path home be closer’. The travellers just looked at each other with amazement. What did this mean?
But before they could give it one more glance a loud shriek came from Mr. Carter! They turned to see a large hissing Egyptian Cobra. Legend has it that every pyramid is guarded by a deadly venomous snake. It’s eyes were focussed on Mr. Carter and he was hissing quite viciously. An attack was imminent!
Without thinking, Hari reached into his pocket and threw out some yellow powder. It hit the snakes tongue and the reptile slithered away. “What was that?” asked a stammering Mr. Carter.
“Oh, just some Sulphur powder. It tastes awful” replied Hari with a smile.
And before things could get any more exciting, the travellers bid Mr. Carter, Rayees and King Tut farewell and jumped on the bike. Just then, the magical map in Hari’s pocket started vibrating. He took out the map and a golden bull was shining on it, with the words “The Mighty Bull can make or break your fortune”.

Just then, the magical map in Hari’s pocket started vibrating. He took out the map and a golden bull was illuminated on it with the words ‘The Mighty Bull can make or break your fortune’ underneath.
What does all this mean?
