Shiver me timbers!
We got back to Valdivia in time for the monthly get together of Franco's buccaneer friends the Hermanos de la Costa.
This time the navy top brass as well as the captives (that's me and the wives!) were invited. I have to say this jolly lot were rather well dressed for a bunch of pirates, even Franco was asked to wear a tie (haha! None on board Caramor).
As a 'captive' I thought my best hope for escape was to befriend the captain of the navy ship anchored in Valdivia. He has promised to show us around and with a bit of luck I may get to see that elusive golden rivet everybody talks about.
