More News From Columbia
Some of you may have been a little puzzled by the last report from the Cali, Columbia Track World Cup, which made a rather cryptic reference to the return of Jim Fisher's passport, etc. Well, here's the story:
As some of you may have already heard, the week started of with a bang. I was professionally robbed by some dude posing as our bus driver, insisting that I take my bag off to sit down. Anyhow, takes my passport, plane ticket, customs papers, discman, CD's, wallet, ID, bank card, cash, and brand spanking new Oakley sunglasses along with my shoulder bag that he pulled from under the seat. All the important stuff. After visiting 6 Columbian jails, and a day's worth of police reports, I ended up being able to identify the guy, they searched his house and found, I assume everything, and gave me back my ID, ticket, cards, passport, and custom papers. The other stuff wasn't recovered, or so they say, but I'm sure one of the cops is groovin' to my tunes. So, at least I can leave the country. I AM CANADIAN doesn't work as well at immigration as it does on TV.
Maybe he will take AmEx travellers cheques next time...
