Thanks Rob Ayres! To answer your questions:
- I did get to take a few pictures with our handlers. However, both of them did expressly tell me that they’d prefer not getting photographed. One, in particular, was pretty adamant about not being included in pictures.
- Thankfully, the security check when leaving the country was much more relaxed compared to when we arrived. I was pretty nervous about this. They took a quick look at my electronics again (phone, cameras, etc), but no one asked to see any of my pictures, or to fire up my hard drive, where I was storing all my photos and videos.
