It wouldn’t be until around 9:35am when we finally got to the customs person, but when she asked what was in our cooler, we revealed that we had eggs, some bread, some kefir, as well as a bag of fruits. Well, it was the fruits that got the customs person to write up a slip and had us go to the secondary inspection area.
At this point, I was fuming that Julie didn’t respect the likelihood that we’d have our fruits discarded, which was wasted money. And now we had to waste even more unforeseen time going through this next process. I was now very worried that we wouldn’t get to Spokane until very late, as a result, especially since Julie wanted to make some stops in the greater Seattle area for lunch as well as a pharmacy run.
Indeed, the return to the US part of this trip was already not going as planned, and this incident was totally self-inflicted…
