Dapala was the Ngbaka tribesman who became my friend as shared in the chapter "Into Africa". I thought he would have died due to jungle disease and 2 wars but in 2008, while visiting that region of the Congo, Keith Gustafson asked if per chance anyone knew Dapala. The word went out and Dapala was found.
