Well, this is certainly a strange story. According to this article in the Washington Post written by reporter Nick Miroff, 46-year old Tanya Lewis from Louisiana has been “stranded in Bogotá’s international airport since October, sleeping in the departure lounge and surviving on handouts from fellow tourists.” Literally, this woman has been sleeping and eating at the airport for three months!
Yesterday, Colombian immigration authorities removed Ms. Lewis from the airport in handcuffs and escorted her to the U.S. Embassy, for her deportation to the United States.
According to the Washington Post article, although the details are murky, Ms. Lewis has been drifting from country to country around the world for nearly 5 years to escape undefined legal troubles.
If only Ms. Lewis had Priority Pass (and a boarding pass), she could have visited any of the three lounges at Bogotá’s Airport. (bad humor)
