The American way!

After a whole day spent in a plane, the three stoodles finally arrived at Newark Liberty Airport, New York. With another 8 hours or so before their next flight, the three stoodles decided to go downtown to check out the lifestlye of the over-glorified and dodgy.

But there was a slight problem. Their luggage, one of which weighed more than 20 kgs, would be a burden to lug around in town. So they decided to inquire about baggage services, hoping to leave their luggage at the airport while they roam the dodgy streets of New York.

Alas, shock came unsurprisingly when the information people told them that no such services exist anymore prior to the 9/11 incident which succeeded in making Americans paranoid about finding a bag unattended. (You will never see this scenario in Malaysia as the people here are too busy thinking about the spoils that they can get rather than the possibility of getting blown up by a hidden bomb)

So the three stoodles had to sit and wait in the airport until their next flight. During that time, a certain fire alarm kept going off, resulting in temporary hearing loss and difficulty in sleeping. But sleep still came and before long, they were on their way to the check-in counter.

After going through another security check whereby the only male member of the troupe gets frisked (again), they boarded the plane that will take them to the Canadian city of Toronto.

Meanwhile in Toronto, Agent Cryptobia was battling a thunderstorm amidst tornado warnings and foggy roads...
