While watching the people arriving and waiting, it seems there is an exchange of a lot more emotions here. At the domestic airport, you drop and kiss your passenger and when they return hardly anything, a hug and a kiss of welcome perhaps or they just pick up a cab to their destination.
Coming from outside the country, there are a lot of people waiting for someone to come out of the threshold. I feel you are not totally in US soil until you pass that door, when your passport, I-94 and custom forms are stamped clear.
There is so much anticipation from both sides and once they see that familiar face, it breaks into a big smile, eyes lit up, arms open, some break to a run to hug each other and still others a tear or two of sheer joy and happiness.
