Aw: Penguin finds his human soulmate

On a steamy tropical island in Brazil, a tuxedoed traveler found a soul mate.

Why else would a penguin named Jinjing, native to chilly Patagonia roughly 2,000 miles away, keep returning to a warm stretch of sand in Rio de Janeiro state during mating season?

João Pereira de Souza, a retired bricklayer, has shared his homestead and sardine supply for four years with the seabird.

The penguin disappears into the sea for days—sometimes months—only to return to the spot where Mr. de Souza raises chickens by the beach in this remote fishing village of 1,300 residents on the island of Ilha Grande.
