Well done getting through. One of the border challenges must be keeping your patience.....having some sort of constructive perspective. We become task oriented and effective in as many aspects of our lives as possible......then at borders we are a lot less effective and the process quite arbitrary, especially where you are now. It might be my undoing if I were in your position! I have enough trouble shutting my mouth at the Canada/US border. It could be inappropriate, but is it acceptable or worth considering photographing (cell phone) some of the border paper stamping etc? I imagine not, especially if there is some sort of collusion going on north to south. Probably better not to be 'right' and just pay the various 'taxes' as you go through. Vancouver is having an Indian Summer which ends in about 3 days according to the forecast. Your postings will be more and more enjoyable very soon as we sit here in the gloom. I'll probably even wish I was at a Honduran border by February! Is the DR650 still running like a top?
