Re: Enrique or H.A. Place

Interesting. Id think that would be hard to pull off not speaking fluent Spanish or none at all. I would also think that a native name such as Enrique or Santiago would be earned as they made friends in the area and gained respect. Showing up fresh off the boat and going with a Spanish name as I said before, doesn't make sense.

            There could have been a very good reason for the use of the names. Dan has much more South American context and speaks Spanish fluently. I suspect there must be a rationale for the use of their alias ... more
