    Tip the crew

    Gifts are always appreciated, and a tip jug will be passed for the crew. Instead of money, though, I gave them something special, real pieces of eight! Spanish Reals of this era are plentiful, and may be had at a coin show. The ones I got were well worn, and had many "chop" marks. About $20 apiece. The crew went wild over them.

    Ray/Rey Farmer or Spainard

    When travelling, I always take a journal as well as my camera. Write in it faithfully each day. Then when you are home, re-write it with an ear for adventure. Make characters. Ray a farmer from Pennsylvania became "Rey, a tall thin Spainard, dark complected, with long black hair, and a stiletto beard."
