We just cruised on the Norwegian Sun and one of the stops was Guatemala. The same slew of vendors were lining the dock when we arrived.

But, when the ship sounded the horn to sail at 5 p.m., all of those vendors, taxi drivers, bus drivers, dancers, souvenir salespeople, the local fire trucks and cops were all lined up along the departure dock. As we pulled away, they all began waving, blowing their horns, flashing red lights, throwing kisses, flashing high and low beams and sounding the city fire whistles.

They waved and threw kissed until were were almost out of sight. I think that is really cool.

I guess they appreciate your visit, and the business...
