Want to get rich? Invest in a paper mill and a stapler factory! The amounts of small pieces of paper and the number of staples accumulated on tickets and in your passport is amazing. Dozens of people are busy stapling and stamping and other dozens are equally busy tearing off the same small pieces of paper 30 minutes later after you have waited in yet another line. Bureaucracy and administration seems to be the main line of work in both the US and Central America.
