A PANAMANIAC IN OUR MIDST ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA ...!

                             

Kathy regaled the crowd at 7th and Montana this morning with tales from her holiday in Panama.  While she had a great time -- canopying across the rain forest, suspended by a rope and harness over waterfalls in a torrential downpour -- the flight home transformed the normally Happy-go-Lucky traveler into a Virtual Panamaniac.  The fun began at customs in Mexico City, where she had to change planes.  "On the way there, it was simple, I just hopped from one gate to the other," she said.  "But on the way back it was a nightmare."  Not only did Mexican Customs Officials put her through the ringer, they made her go back and forth across the airport so many times she missed her flight and had to be re-routed through Mazatlan.  Indeed, Mexico City Airport is notorious.  Maybe -- before Kathy's next visit -- we should suggest they set up a rope and harness system to get her from one end of the airport to the other ...!

My BIL learned a lesson in Mexico, never try saving a damsel in distress.  It was a set up and he ended up in jail.  What a nightmare, we're suprised he made it thru his first tour of duty with the Navy but he survived it or did they survive him, lol.
