Did you ever read the glamourous advertisements of the tropical steamer excursions? The wonder and beauty of the tropics? Lazy days in the Caribbean! And those romantic tropical names-Santo Domingo, the Bay of Benin, the Virgin Islands! And that gibbous moon that always manages to find an entry into tropical stories! And those glorious waving palms! And those perfect bathing beaches! Well, strange as it may seem, there’s another side of the story that hasn’t been mentioned so seductively. In fact, it's seldom mentioned at all!
