Brazil Boots out Bill Gates' Boat Crew

Microsoft magnate Bill Gates was enjoying cruising around a river in the Amazon basin until Brazil booted his group out of the country because his boat crew did not have work permits, according to police.
While Gates and some friends -- according to local media Microsoft staff -- had proper tourist visas, the crew of the boat on the Rio Negro near the city of Manaus did not have working papers, federal police said.
So Brazilian authorities fined the group and gave them three days to leave the country, which they did on Tuesday. Gates reportedly has spent vacation time in Brazil's Amazon basin region in 2007 and 2009.
