The night air was cooler than I expected but a cab pulled up quickly. Victoria and I didn’t have a clear sense of where we wanted to go so she asked the Driver.
“Have many people from our ship been in your cab tonight?”
“Yes, “ he replied.”but I have only fisherman in my cab tonight . You the first mermaids.”
Victoria twisted her face in confusion so I translated. “ So we are the first females you’ve had in your cab all night?”
“The guys from your ship they like go to hostess bars. You like go to host bar?”
