Overview

After the smooth success of Denise and Myrtle making it past US immigration at the airport a few years earlier, Gena felt overly confident.

"It was an interesting read and being from The Bahamas, I was intrigued by the way you slipped us in there. Somewhat accurate but very entertaining."
