... closed and locked up. Then around 8:30pm. Everything starts to open again. By 11pm the joint is hopping! Unlike our overnight stay outside on the curb of the domestic terminal, the International terminal is actually quite metropolistic. Inside the security checkpoint were nice padded couches, lights, shops, restaurants, bars, even a grassy lawn. A vast improvement over our last encounter. This terminal would have made for a MUCH ...

... So you can swim/lounge in your own private area and the join the party in the main pool when you like. Of course there was no party. We only saw 2 people the whole time.
