only 3.5 hour layover...any ideas?

Can I leave? If so where should I go? If not what is there to do?

Help ...this may be the only time I make it to this country but I do need to make my connection.

If you only have 3.5 hrs from one plane to the next, it will hardly be worth your while to go into town. You need to allow 30 mins each way at least. Then check-in and out times !!!

Look at the airport shops. You won't have time to sightsee. You really should see if you can change your ticket so you have more time, at least 8 hours.
