3 June 2018 – I spent most of my first day in Los Angeles talking with my brother, his wife and relaxing. I also called Mary and talked a bit. We set up a date when she would come out to Los Angeles, CA to visit. She had to work around her work schedule but we did get a date established, 12 June 2018. She will be arriving at John Wayne Airport. It should be exciting, I haven’t seen her in almost 9 months. It was also nice to eat good old American food. I spent a lot of time thinking about the challenges of shipping my motorcycle back to the U.S. As difficult as it was to get myself, my visa and my motorcycle into Brazil, it was as difficult to leave. You know, it’s time to move on. I must start the process of getting my motorcycle out of the airport back from Avianca Cargo. Tomorrow I will start making telephone calls.
4 June 2018 – Today, I called Interworld Freight. They will be the broker which I will use to get my motorcycle out of Customs and out of the Avianca Cargo Warehouse. I received the Customs Power of Attorney form from them. I filled it out and e-mailed it back to them. I informed them that I was paying storage fees on my motorcycle and could they please expedite this process. I also asked them if they had the address for Avianca Cargo in and around Los Angeles International Airport. While I was waiting for a reply back, I started searching for their address on the internet. I found it. I wrote down the address. I didn’t hear back from Interworld Freight as to the address of Avianca Cargo. We decided we would drive down to the address I found on the internet tomorrow. It was too late today as we would get caught up in rush hour traffic and that’s a hassle.
