CSP Card

Did you at least get your points for hitting minimum spend? And sad that they may have lost a good long term customer.

Visa Issue

Be aware that as of now if you are coming directly from the US on the way over you will not be able to get a visa to leave the airport. Hopefully that will change by the time you leave.
