Late in the summer, we invited some friends over to have dinner up on our roof - salads and strawberries and peaches in the velvety dark. Jorge and his lover Mike are planning a trip to Latin America, to visit Jorge's family in Bolivia and to travel. They both work with me on the boat. We have all saved a lot of money. They invite me to go with them. Jorge is not 'out' to his family, and I will be a distraction if there is any suspicion.

Of course the idea is ridiculous. They're going in just a few weeks, there's no time to organize. Besides I have over-stayed my visa and if I leave I'll have to go back to England and reapply to get into America. I might never get back. They're going to Bolivia, to Peru, to Brazil. They're getting away.
