Yesterday we had a small visit from some local guys. Unfortunately they worked at the customs office.
"May we come onboard".
Figured there would be no sense in arguing with
them about that. They asked us a lot of questions and of cause the wanted to see our papers - which we don't have as I mentioned earlier. Hmmm. I do have a copy of the contract and my insurance papers though and for some reason they accepted that. But they also let us know that we were lucky and that they could have given us a fine.
And then they went crazy and searched the entire boat. They look through everything. Private papers, clothes, under mattresses ... everywhere ... almost :-). And hey, don't forget to read every little thing in my personal diary. Guess they expected to find some trace of our stay in Amsterdam ... they even asked us if we had a gun ... "oh yes, wait a minute, it's right here in the back along with all the heroin and 30 Chinese refugees?
But they made the point about the papers clear, and I just talked to the officials in Denmark to ask how far they were in the process.
First of all they do not accept bribes and they'll let you know even if you just ask if there is any way to speed up the process.
Secondly you cannot leave Denmark without the papers. Apparently it is not physically possible. So I guess we're still in Denmark and are just very, very lost.
Thirdly some people are just assholes. It would take at least another month.
However I also talked to a private organisation, FTLF and their documents are on the way and we'll get them in Brest.
