The TSA Seized My Wife's Dulce de Leche

09 July 2014, 15:20

Everybody Elena had a wonderful time in Brasil attending World Cup games. Everyone there "went out of their way" to make her feel welcome. to help her when problems arose, and to be especially warm and friendly. As Elena was leaving Brasil, she bought some dulce de leche at the Sao Paulo Airport. This is a sweet well known to people in Brasil and Argentina. It's a paste made from milk,sugar and some other ingredients. Elena put it in her carry on bag. She flew from Sao Paulo to Charlotte, North Carolina. US Customs had no problem with it at all when she cleared customs at the Charlotte airport.

When she went to go through security for her flight from Charlotte to San Francisco, she had a big problem with the TSA screeners. In their mind her harmless South American paste could be an explosive.They seized it from her. Elena tried to get it packed into her luggage checked on the plane but it was too late. Elena was never compensated for the seizure of her dulce de leche.

When Elena came home she was sad and angry about this experience. As her husband I felt that it was my responsibility to replace her lost dulce de leche. As luck would have it, I have been a customer for many years of Amigo Foods in Miami. They sell a large variety of food and drinks from all over Latin America. I found her lost dulce de leche and ordered some. Last night it arrived and Elena was a very happy lady!!!!

I have been asking myself if we are really free. We are living in a democratic system under the status quo of the apartheid. That in a nutshell means we are not free. Read more...

Springbok Transformation

To the untrained eye it seems like a simple issue. Maybe it is and we’ve just complicated it by our love for drama. Whatever it is, where will the Springboks be when race is no longer an issue? Read more...
