Well here we go, "Lloydsī", a particularly nasty Wetherspoonīs outlet, one to beat all others. Yup, itīs Gatwick Airport, deepest Surrey, and Iīm surrounded by the cream of the home counties, already making acquaintances and passing passes. Itīs all in a days preparation for the "boys behaving badly" tour of Tenerife.
Well... Iīm outta this. Buenos Aires and the whole of Latin America beckons, but itīs still hard to contemplate. Some very heavy seeds of doubt have been planted at check-in. Will I get into Argentina sans Visa - who knows, now? I didnīt think it would be a problem. It already seems so, so complicado. "Have you got $50 per day for the duration of your stay"... er...."NO!".
After sweating for a while, and quoting from "The Rough Guide" I am albeit begrudgingly, allowed to check in my luggage. The prospect of being turned away at the other end looms uncomfortably.
"The calendar is magnificent!"
"I just wanted to say how much I'm loving the new, larger calendar!"
