Now seriously, I don't think that Pasquale had any intention of doing us harm. I think he is very new at this and that the old guy did him a favor by getting him some work. Pasquale was the kind of guy that just looking at will scare you. He is a big, big swarthy type. But I think he just wanted the work.
When it was all over and done with, and he was dropping us off at the train station, Pasquale parked in the train parking lot. He said that he needed to go find that guy that had given him the job. I misunderstood what he said and thought that he said the old guy was his father. Pasquale said No, the old guy was not his father but just a friend who helped him out by getting him the job. He was going to go give him some of the money.
I personally thought we did alright. We paid a little more than we wanted but we did get to go to both of the places we wanted. We had a personal driver who didn't bore us to death like some of the tour operators do. And best of all, we all lived. Nobody died.
