yes, Bill. That is a small town where strangers are immediately recognized. Having moved to a small town 4 years ago, I think I can recognize the day trippers now.

What got me was, not only that she knew I wasn't from around there, but that she assumed I was just passing through, as though this couldn't be anybody's destination. I didn't think she was dangerous, but, in future, I'll heed your warnings. Just tell me which movies I have to see.Thanks, all.

(Once upon a time I visited the only one Pub in a Brasilian coastal town... I still do remember that visit!)
