So, the flight was uneventful, immigration for Juan was a piece of cake, I got the 3rd degree, once the immigration officer noticed I had been to Oman.

What was your purpose for going? Have you been to any other countries in the Middle East? What cities did you visit while there? Did you visit any cities other than stated?

Oh for crying out loud.

Anyhow, we got out of there and made it to the Thrifty rental center. Where the woman looked at my driver's license, and refused to rent to me on the grounds that it "Didn't meet standards" She had a big book with pictures of a Belizean Driver's license and it looked JUST like mine. Except it's didn't meet *standards*

OK, horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach time. (Outside for a smoke)  Went back in and picked another company at random. Budget. They didn't give my license a second look. Cost $300 more than the Thrifty would have though.

I've used my license countless times to rent cars in both Canada and the US before with never a problem. I guess I won't be making anymore reservations through Thrifty.

Off to meet Melissa and then to Houston.

Meeting Melissa was a neat treat. ( A friend I met on the Internet) I called her up and she gave me directions to a favourite Tex Mex restaurant. (Manny's) <--- Click the link to see mouthwatering food images.The GPS found it with no issues and we were only there a couple minutes when she arrived.

The food was amazing, the conversation flowed effortlessly, and...she even brought a present for me! How cool was that?!?

A beautiful scarf with wildly bright colors and full of silk screened dogs. She said it reminded her of me because of our many. :D I love it.
