The actual immigration official was champion, it was those before him that were bad and one of tho ...

I remember the endless ques at the airport with the stewards telling you to "move along" if a gap of more than 6" developed between you and the guy in front.
It appears things have not changed after so many years.
"Are you, or have you ever been a member of the NAZI party?" was one of the questions you had to answer in the negative....
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Now you have to fill in an online form before you travel that actually asks " are you a terrorist " I wonder how many say yes.

Day two of the US trip is almost over and a mixed day it was, went to Central Park, great place, clean, tidy and free to all ( please note China, public parks should be free ) then onto the Metropolitan Museum, a decent enough museum but at a "suggested " entry fee of $25 it is New Yorks turn to learn, Shanghai Museum is free, the British Museum is free, the Victoria and Albert Museum is free, having said that it is a good place to visit, then onto Times Square, why all the hype? Lots of extra large tv screens advertising things I do not want to buy then onto Brooklyn Bridge and a boat down the East River back to the hotel.

The evening meal was in a Vietnamese bar, food was OK but on the bottom of the bill or check as it is called in the USA was a tip calculator telling you how much 18%, 20% and 22% of the bill, really 22% as a tip when service was indifferent, we only had service 4 times, one to bring the menu, one to take the order, one to bring the order and one to bring the bill, why does that deserve another 22%, what a strange custom, to me tips are a reward for good service, not an extra for doing your job to the minimum requirements, strange place this America.
To be continued......
