Daily Dose

From In Patagonia, by Bruce Chatwin


"Boarding the boat back to Ushuaia was a big man with a blotchy red face, upturned moustaches, and the syrupy eyes of an Ottoman pasha.  He wore an astrakhan hat.  He had come from Santiago to see about a plant for processing krill.  The whales were gone but there was still plenty of krill.  I talked about Grandpa Felipe and mentioned Charlie and Jackie.
'He probably ate them,' the fat man said."
