Here in Florida, businesses employ people as “wavers” to attract attention of would-be buyers or customers. During tax season for example, you will see “Lady Liberty” in many intersections in Central Florida advertising Liberty Tax Service.
In The Bahamas, it was my luck to get a photo of the Pirate of the Caribbean, dressed in red with a pistol. I thought he was drunk, so when he was taking the pistol off his holster, I thought I was in big trouble. But he was cool, he played his role well when I took his photo.
Entering one of the stores, another pirate greeted me. But this one is not real. I thought it was a wax. The lady on the background is made of wax as well, or so I thought. They’re very well done, they looked so real from a far.
