Episode Recap

When a delegation from Boraqua, Venezuela's P&R department visits Pawnee at Leslie's invitation, she belived that her guests would be Third World bumpkins and would be stunned and amazed by the culural superiority of America. However, the expectations of the delegates throws Leslie off her stride. Initially, the female members of the welcoming commitee were understood to be sexual offerings while Tom was thought to be a menial servant.

As the visit proceeded, the delegates were less than impressed by all of the sites and events Leslie presented them with, siting how things are so much grander in Venezuela, particularly the 14000 channels they can get on satellite. With her patience nearing an end and tempers beginning to flare, Raul presents Leslie with a gift of $35,000.00 to help fill in the pit and finally get to work on the park she has been wanting to build. She then found herself at odds between her distrust and dislike of the Venezuelans and her desire to move forward with her park project.
