    @ Rita, Germany, You are in Germany and in Europe ladies would not pay attention to Gold ornaments. In case you wish to have I will bring some gifts for both of you. Cynthia doesn't seem to be crazy for Gold. By her comments I get the feelings that she is very simple lady.

    "Unfortunately the Gold was not concealed in their favorite body part this time for a change." Possible that rectum is totally damaged cannot hold any more goods due to wear & tare and needs some correction. Hopefully, for next trip

    They are also tired of mentioning the same names again and again. Usually same words will be there . name , Middle name and surname if any may be interchanged that all. If you pull out a record of people who were caught smuggling gold through this airport since it began operations, you might find some 500 people so far, but the combination of words in the name may be hardly 50. What is there in the 'Name " said someone great once , and then signed his name under the quote.
