You can always lose a tail, but do you want to? After all, what message might that send? If you’re being followed and you simply vanish, will alarm bells go off in the enemy camp? Usually, the best thing is to wander around, go to a movie, and enjoy a walk in the park. But if you really do have to disappear from view, you might stage a Last Farewell. Convince your followers you’re leaving town. Stage a dramatic flourish. Put on a public show for your audience, and then quietly sneak back into town a few hours later.
