After spending five days in Santiago, we are on our way. The motorbike arrived yesterday morning. The customs process went extremely smooth, considering there was a strike and no one was working! The door was locked so we sat outside with our gear and waited. No more than 5 minutes went by and a customs official addressed us and within half an hour we had our temporary importation!! We had to pay the freight company $60 usd and the Cargo company $80 cad to get Sammy.
The biggest problem was that Grif forgot the key for the disk lock, so I had to do a 2 hour round trip on the bus and walking! I don't know much spanish, so I had some hurdles!
We celebrated last night with pizza and beer at the local bar!
