Time flys when you're having fun

We got back into BA and headed straight into San Telmo for the Sunday market to get some souvenirs for the trip. The market was fun and we even had time to wash the bikes before finding a place to stay while we setup the shipping of the motos. The hostel that we stumbled upon is amazing. It's called the art factory and it is full of cool paintings and all the walls and rooms are decorated with amazing art. We went to Dakar motos to set things up the next day. Sandra explained the process to us and we were on our way. We found out that the last time we crossed into Argentina, the customs guy screwed up our paperwork so Sandra sent us to the customs office downtown to have it fixed. 3 hours in a waiting area later, we were told to have it fixed at the airport. Turns out the customs official at the airport said everything was fine in the end and we loaded the bikes on the pallets by 11am. It's now 3 pm and the drug dog has gone missing so we are sitting here waiting for the last step before we can get things shrink wrapped and be on our way. Stretching the croissant and coffee a little too far today. ;) We were sitting around this afternoon talking about how it seems like the time has gone by so fast, it's hard to believe we have been doing this for this long. All that's left is to pay for the shipping at the bank on Thursday, as tomorrow is another holiday, and then we get on a plane on Friday. I can't wait to be home, but at the same time it's a little bittersweet for it to be over. A saying that has come up a few times on this trip seems to fit here.... "Didn't waste that day."
