Got to keep the tourists happy. I can just see them sitting around after the show, drinking wine and making snide comments about the tourist crowd. Creative story - well done.

Pat said...

Hahaha...cute!! Thanks for the laugh! My husband is of 100% Dutch ancestry--I'll ask him about Dutch courage.

Your story reminds me of watching a young Mexican couple do traditional Mexican folk dances for tourists in Chiapas, Mexico, in an outdoor setting. They both looked very grim the whole time...probably thinking, "These tourists aren't going to leave us any tips, as usual."
