argh. we’ve had two shipping epics already

This is another strange flight/boat the bike has made and it’s been the most complicated.

  1. The shipper and freight company made a mistake and the bike crate was too big for the standards of the smaller plane from Taipei to Yangon. Sorted out, after the shipper panicked everyone.
  2. The government guide didn’t deliver the permit to Customs before the bike arrived. For a few hours last night it looked like duty, taxes and impound death. But somehow we escaped that, but it was a close thing. Whoa.

It’s just that they don’t get this everyday. No one starts with their own bikes from Myanmar, by air, to a city where motorcycles are illegal. But now we know what went wrong, it’s solved for the billionth chance we do it again.
