John adjusted his binoculars. The ship’s hulk came into focus.

His eyes x-rayed the disembarking passengers.

He watched their smiling visages; the rich and the pretending to be so, the young and the not so, all itching to drink and drown in an alien culture.

For them it was ‘Goodbye Andamans, Hello Sunderbans’, the Wild East.

His eyes caught a seventy something pony tailed hippie who lined up at the customs counter.

The man was holding a grey duffel bag with a false bottom.

John moved away from his hotel room window and fixed a drink.

His gold had arrived.
