With the fantastic success of the Lords of the Rings movies, New Zealand is now billing itself as Middle Earth, with good effect.

However, I was detained at the US Customs and Immigration Department and denied entry into the country, as I did not meet the requirements for a 'visitor for pleasure purposes' because I live with my family and I am currently unemployed. I was considered 'an illegal immigrant not in possession of a valid visa.'"
From Bonnie Weissman: "Hi, I just returned from Italy, had a wonderful time, and have a few suggestions."

Traveler's checks? I've heard that banks are reluctant to take them. Good old US dollars? Help, time is running out and I'm confused."
