    Not that religion peddlers are common here, but the local tactic is more insidious. Most often they pair up a young and pretty girl with a chaperon. Guess who first address the victim, before the handler steps in for the kill of the supposedly weakened victim.

    [Always reminds me of the cheap but clean hotel in Rio I moved to after the generally known and expensive one turned out to be less than sanitary. The reason for them having the luxurious and meticulously clean bath rooms I found out when I was awaken from my after-beach siesta by the porter peddling one of his fancy dressed female, um, "friends". Selling practices are really universal, even if the definition of "room service" isn't. :-)]

    Fortunately there are lots of pretty girls around here, so you are naturally inoculated against the sinful practices of religious fanatics. :-P
