airport customs

What a great idea, let’s put 2 planes worth of people in a small room and make them wait a couple of hours. Now that we just spread Covid to everyone, let’s go out and hang with the locals. What could go wrong?

It was pretty bad in May and horrible a couple of years ago. I know they used to look for beef but have no clue what they are looking for now. When I used to bring school supplies they always went over that with a fine tooth comb. I always had receipts so they would just give up. Maybe they’re trying to charge an import tax to someone that will be “discounted” if paid in cash.

They're just trying to keep their jobs.

So instead of getting everyone through in 30 minutes, they take 3 hours so they have enough work as tourism continues to decline. Unfortunately this will probably just add to the decline of tourism. Nothing like kicking yourself in the foot, kinda like having a kill sailfish tournament. Same crap goes on over here, just a different variation. Our system is to put the wife by the front of the line with a couple of suitcases so she can relax while I stand in line.
