My business partner is just plain unlucky.
The last time he came to Panama was about a year ago– we were both attending an exclusive Atlas 400 deep sea fishing trip at a remote lodge in Panama’s Darien province. I flew in from Thailand last year, Matt came from Atlanta.
As he came down the jet bridge to board his flight, he was met by agents of US Customs and Border Protection, a division of the Department of Homeland Security. Agents were on the jetbridge randomly screening passengers… not for bombs, guns, or knives, though… or even drugs for that matter… but for money.
