How Much Liquor Is Too Much?

Keeping with the wedding-related international smuggling theme from yesterday, I bring you this thread started by Ayalax on TripAdvisor in which she inquires as to how to get drugs into Colombia.

Ok, so the real goal is to get some wedding-themed liquor bottles to the event – very thoughtful and something that will make a great memento of the occasion to be sure. And the other TripAdvisor members offer some great advice – particularly leuca who falls back on the classic truism (and I’m paraphrasing here): when in doubt, drink a lot of alcohol really fast.

What could go wrong?

Ayalax; I hope you post in the thread or in the comments section of this blog and let us know how it all turns out. And if we don’t see a post, we’ll just assume it’s because you are holed up in a Colombian prison somewhere.

  1. Hi Mike
    Sorry to disappoint but I am not writing this from the deep, dark inside of a Colombian jail! In the end I couldn’t go to the wedding but my husband packed the miniature whisky bottles in his hand luggage.He decided that discretion was the better part of valour, opened the bottles and drank the contents – before flying. No problem going through immigration/customs with eight empty bottles in Dubai, JFK or Cartagenia. He bought some more whisky duty-free in JFK and refilled the bottles in Colombia. The wedding went well apart from the food poisoning but that’s another story…..

  2. Glad to hear you aren’t writing from jail, and I LOVE the solution your husband chose … though it sounds like that would only be an option for someone who has “prepared” for it 😉
