Border crossing rant

Just a little rant that if the line ups at the border are completely full wouldn't it be smart to open all of the lanes up???

I spent 3 hours today at the Lewiston border crossing. 2 going in and 1 coming back to Canada.

Very frustrating.

/Rant

Um... you should try to get through passport control in Rome behind a 747 charter of Japanese tourists!!!

James.
or try and leave China when you find out about the departure fee....that they only want in that worthless tin foil currency of theirs.

You should have been able to find some incredible open pit Q in Greece for sure.
