We used the day to move the customs to give us our parcel with spare parts. They did not do this lightly. We got help from our energetic hostess Svetlana and she had experience with getting goods into Russia. No end to the documents this one parcel begets. A full technical manual, explaining what an inverter is has to be translated into Russian - by us! Svetlana helps again. You ought to force the customs officer to read it. And besides, the spare part is only in transit, as the rest of Green Car. Perhaps we will get the parcel tomorrow afternoon. We will celebrate it tonight with Svetlana and her husband Sasha. We bring out chocolate and a bottle of Russian champagne and have a long lovely evening in their kitchen.
