Last night as I faced the daunting dilemma of choosing between Bacardi and Captain Morgan, the bartender at the hotel bar asked me where I was from and I told him Jamaica (Jamaiquno). He then said that the Captain Morgan Rum company had sponsored a research expedition a few years ago to find the lost fleet of Cpatin Morgan and they found a wreckage with cannons, barrels and swords that may have belonged to him.
Well that solved my dilemma, I chose a Captain Morgan Mojito. When my friends arrived at the hotel we just bought a bottle and kept up the Captain Morgan brand ambassadorship at two more bars.
Morgan Henry raided Panama City with 1,400 men in January 1671. While he went on to overpower the city, he lost five ships amid rough seas and the shallow reef around the fort of Castillo de San Lorenzo. I think adding this history lesson will convince my friends this was an academic exercise.
Suffice to say last night was sponsored by Captain Morgan, this morning was sponsored by Tylenol. Work like a Captain, party like a pirate.
