Mr Jummy's First Flight

As you probably inferred from my U is for Utah post, we made it here!

Mr Jummy's First Flight

Mr Jummy enjoyed the flight over immensely and liked looking out the window at all of the clouds.

He was not, however, impressed with how the border agents acted once we got into Houston. "Oh crap," is not something you want the agent to say after they scan your passport. We got "escorted" all over (because we are renegades apparently), then they dragged Martijn off into a holding room and sent me off to wait alone by the escalators. Not ONCE did they tell us what was up, other than his passport had been flagged. We still do't know. I was really grateful that I booked the earlier flight out of Amsterdam that gave us the 7.5 hour layover in Houston instead of the later one that would've only given us an hour... because we would've missed our connection!

Anyhow, all is well that ends well... and we probably will try to avoid flying through Houston again in the future since they seem to have it in for Martijn (this wasn't his first run-in with the immigration "officials" there).

Glad you all made it safely to Utah. Weird about them detaining Martijn, makes you wonder what's up, huh? Could it be for bring another Dutchie w/o proper papers? Perhaps Mr. Jummy needs his own passport!

I don't understand how they can isolate someone without explanation. That's ridiculous.

Customs didn't "forget" to take the little green card out of his passport last time he was there, did they? For people who are apparently supposed to be professionals, they tend to do this just a wee bit too often...

They did that in Atlanta with Marcel once but they told us why, it was because they couldn't get a finger print from him because he bites his thumb haha... They told me to wait outside of the room but I ignored them and went in anyway. I figured one more person in the room and they woudln't notice since there were a lot in there. We didn't have any problems the next time.

Looks like Jummy is having fun :) (I hope you are too. LOve you!

Mr Jimmy looks very happy indeed. It looks like he is a good flyer.

I guess if it comes up on their computer they have to pull him. But they /could/ have said *something*:/

I think it is just TX. I have heard that happen to so many people. Blech. TX.
