Captain: "Welcome aboard flight 310 to Lima, Peru. We expect a smooth journey and an on-time arrival. So sit back, relax and enjoy the flight"

@luannfan1212: I’m sorry to be rude, but a pet peeve of mine is that 360 degrees really means no change at all. 180 degrees is a complete reversal, at 360 degrees you’re right back where you started.
My take on this whole arc is that Greg really is trying to take this strip in a new direction. As Meh-thodology said, this is as far outside Pitts as any Luann strip has ever gone. I don’t see any reason why Greg has to stop showing us what happens to “Guns & Roses” in Peru.
I will feel cheated if we get no reaction from the elder Aragones generation. Are we really supposed to believe that Tio Leo didn’t let her folks know about this development? Or did Rosa “forget” to mention to her uncle that she was bringing her boyfriend along? And that said boyfriend had no other place to sleep?
The Luanniverse isn’t always concerned with mundane details like employment law, work permits and such. It’s a cartoon; I get it and normally I’m OK with that.
But ignoring the reactions of Rosa’s parents and uncle just feels, to me, like a completely different level of (un)reality. Besides, there’s way too much dramatic and/or comic potential to just wave it away, particularly when this whole arc is about Gunther’s “rite of passage”. He’s come this far, it would really be a letdown to have him roll over and run home at the first glare from Senor (or Senora) Aragones.
I know where the tilde key is, but is there a way to put it on top of an n?
