Amazing Harbor Toastmasters Club Inauguration

There was something amiss when I was nearing the Bureau of Customs (BOC) compound at NAIA. It wasn't just the car tire trouble that I was having, there was something strange at the road.

There was a long line of cars parked on one lane near the sidewalk. I asked a watcher if that was the way to the BOC. He said yes and that there was an event right inside the parking lot. This meant there was nowhere else I could park and so I was just instructed to back up and park at the tail end of the queue.
