Hand your passport to the Customs Officer who takes it and wordlessly punches a whole lot of buttons and after a couple of minutes hands it back to you . . . still without a word. On a positive note are bags were waiting for us once we cleared customs and clearance was pretty quick with lots of Officers on hand. The Dreamliner we ...
