contains mild peril

Hi Alessandro

Here's a big "Hi" to Alessandro Juan Lares Peres.

He's a nut seller in Panajachel who realised (I hope) that I was never gonna buy any of his cashews or macadamia nuts. He'd trudge up and down the beach looking for gringoes to sell to. I must've bumped into him more than a dozen times while I stayed there. Nice guy and when he knew I didn't want to buy any nuts was as happy just to sit, shoot the breeze and then carry on up the beach after a few minutes.

I know his name as he proudly wrote it in my notebook.
