The words fit the melody in my last OTTification. This time I have freed myself from such tyrannical concepts.

Theory: Cuegan almost certainly can't get back to the tribe in time by foot, even if they could there is definitely no way the whole tribe could be transported up the mountain in time.

Edit: after looking at Gedeon's overlay, I'm now thinking that Mount Argentera is too far east. Overlays may be slightly off because of different projections, but somewhere around Marseilles, I would say. Which means naming La Petite with a French name was spot on! (It's all connected.)
