Our Bermuda Experience

"Later, as the light was failing, we tied DRIVER to the customs jetty on St. Georges Harbor. Exhausted, I staggered into the main office with our passports and ship's papers. Going from the ocean's wide-open spaces straight into a fluorescent-lit room, where everyone is moving at the speed of light, can be extremely disorienting. My mind became over-stimulated, which caused me to act irrationally. (In Third World countries, officials move in slow motion but the disorienting effects are similar). I have often wondered if customs officials think that yachtsmen are the stupidest people on the planet."
