Today I was surprised to see on my doorstep a young coloured man, a resident of Aurora, carrying this model of an imaginary galleon. He has an "interesting" and complex background, for he is an epilectic with a fondness for wine, a bad combination that has landed him in trouble from time to time. He told me that he had learned the art of model-making from his cell-mate in gaol; his stay there ended a few days ago and he is hoping to earn a living from model-making and to stay away from the wine...

In the face of such frankness, I happily bought the little ship!
