I think most people have mixed feelings about boat people. They are all very brave to have attempted the journey. Most are desperate to escape poverty and provide for their families which is commendable. But they are after all illegal immigrants and ?illegal? is usually synonymous with ?bad?.
I have just looked at the photograph and the man fourth from the right in the blue shirt with the Losgigantes.com logo looks remarkably like Maps. Could it be that they are really XL passengers who missed their flights to Tenerife?
Maps is a remarkably resourceful character and if there is a way to get to Tenerife costing less than ?800, he is surely the man to find it.
