    ... we announce to our procession and walk away. The follow us, relentless. I turn to Jamie, "let's hide in the bathroom". It's too much. We go in and luckily there is a flight attendant in there who tells us the orange cars are safer but the red cabs are fine if you get a real one. We go back out ready to face the hoards with a game plan. We haggle for a while and arw able to get an orange cab for $130. Good enough for me. (Notable moment; Jamie and I spent 10 ...
