We'll be here November 2-8.
Tired to go to the airport (PTY)_on 3 November but its their Independence Day and so many of the roads were blocked for parades that we couldn't make it. Hard to believe but the road to the airport was closed. We tried again on the 4th and made it. I spoke with the Girag Air Cargo folks. We'll bring the bikes out to the airport on Monday, the 7th, pay the $902, (cash only) they'll put them on pallets, do the paperwork, etc. and the bikes will 'fly' to Bogota (BOG) on the 8th at 06:00.
We'll fly PTY/BOG on the 9th. Sara will fly in to BOG from Reno on the 10th. The wild card at this point is how long will it take us to get the bikes through customs in Colombia. As soon as we get the bikes we'll continue south.
In the mean time we're in a holding pattern at Panama Passage. Did some sightseeing today on the bike. Tomorrow, Sunday, I've hired a gal to take us on a tour of the city and to see the canal and the canal museum.
"A fantastic, informative and inspirational DVD."
"It's brilliant - thank you very much!"
