April 28, 2009 Ah yes, we have heard of the paper work cha cha when cruising in Mexico and Central America but had not experienced it as yet!  But, all that changed today when we arrived for our scheduled appointment at the port captain’s office to meet the customs inspector.  The customs inspector did not appear and after a few frustrating phone calls to his office at the Liberia airport he decided it would be best if we came to his office at the airport to clear customs.  No problem he said,...
