There must've been a darn good reason, right? For some reason, the immigration official that must check departing foreigners at Mexico City's international airport seems to have taken part of the morning off. The kiosk has been vacant for 45 minutes.
That left some 25 disgruntled passengers with boarding passes in hand unable to proceed to the gates. A United Airlines agent standing beside a well-dressed man said she'd never seen such a situation before.
Unless an immigration official shows up soon, dozens of people will lose their flights.
It's as if the TSA folks all decided to take a lunch break at the same time.
Oh, some guy just showed. No apologies or anything.
Be advised: When traveling to Mexico, schedule in time for the 'siesta factor.' Who knows when an official carrying out a public service might need a break?
