    ... going to be here awhile. We sat outside our room as he tried key after key, then going away to bring more bags of keys and trying again.

    ... the passports and we were able to deduce, based on conversations with other passengers, that there would be a police checkpoint at some point in the middle of the night, when they would need to see our passports. We assumed that he didn’t want to have to wake us up but we still felt rather unsettled at the thought of being without them. He had also insisted on keeping our Chile exit cards with the passport; the airport officials had not secured them in any way, what if ...
