In the Gulf of Mexico there was supposed to be an island, but it is not there. We set off for grid reference 22º 33′ N 91º 22′ O with a group playing an anthem written in tribute to the island by a local composer. Between bouts of dizziness and sea-sickness, the musicians played while the boat was anchored at the place where the island should have been. The water flows, undefined, while the maritime frontiers are nevertheless well-defined and rigid imaginary lines.
