WOW! 5 days... that's great!!!
Throttlemeister was told it would take 15 working days in the Brazil Embassy in Caracas, he then went to the Brazil Embassy in Bogota and they did it in 10 working days...
Hey! maybe as you move south, it takes less time? Maybe in Tierra del Fuego they give the visa on the spot?
Great to see you didn't have to wait that long and you can continue on your ride.
