The translators came from Germany and had problems flying to the right city.
MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - A German crew providing translation services for a U.N. conference on development financing went to the wrong city, showing up in Monterey, Calif., rather than the meeting site more than 1,500 miles away in Monterrey, Mexico, red-faced U.N. and Mexican officials said Monday. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/nm/20020319/od_nm/mixup_dc_1

Interesting note was that when Bush arrived to MTY in both 744 Castro's plane was in front of him, I saw that on local TV it was a good image when the IL-62 was taxing to the runway and passed in front of both US 744. Castro took off at 5:14 p.m. Local Time.
