Chris really was in hot water this time, quite literally. The natives who had captured the great explorer had him tied up and in a large pot; apparently he was going to be the main course.
Oddly enough, there was another man in a pot next to him, also in the process of being boiled alive. Unlike Chris though, he was a native.
Chris had been amazed to find these people practiced cannibalism, morally repugnant as it was, but his shocked when they selected a member of their own tribe, probably related to everyone in the camp, to be cooked.
