... Some took to climbing onto the barrier walls to get some space. Stewards with megaphones put a stop to this. Then, of course, were the selfies.

The day before, we had lunch at a restaurant nearby that had WiFi but I couldn't remember exactly where it was. Thankfully, I ran into Paul again and he directed me to a pay-by-the-minute place so I could get online. I got the number and returned to the bank to get the funds. The lady at the information desk spoke adequate English and she told me that the funds were waiting for authorization. She said that their Western Union services ...
