There are alpha risks and beta risks to everything, so for any given action you take, there are circumstances for which the action would produce a good or bad result. Having said that, I tend to get chummier with the locals than many people do. If some fisherman comes by selling fish
or lobster, I will invite him for a beer
. In Jamaica
, I've had them come by my boat at 4AM telling me the fish
are biting and inviting me to go fishing
with them. OTOH, late night visitors could be up to skullduggery. For me, I would hesitate to shock the **** out of every visitor.
