#4 Border Control

a mistake at the checkpoint

The big white bus was en route from Croatia to Montenegro.

We got to the border and pulled into a compound that looked like a toll booth on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The driver was a grumpy Croatian guy. He steered us over to border control.  The bus shuddered to a stop.

He stood, turned to us, and said something that sounded like, “Passports.”
