My experience at the container storage location

I went to the container location yesterday to get our good passed through customs. I thought, for kicks, why not document the experience so I can look back in the future. I tweeted during the process from my other twitter account @MehtaRomit (where it is more personal tweets vs @TheRomit which is more tech news-related tweets). Here’s the storify story:

    Arrived 10 minutes ago to container location. Need to “inspect” and explain what we have, to customs, apparently.

    Entire container contents will apparently be moved to Concor’s containers. Given how tightly it was packed the first time, I am worried.

    Taken to the container. Waiting for someone to open it.

    @mehtaromit your tweets give a new dimension to the term “unboxing”

    @SathyaBhat in some ways it is re-boxing :-) http://twitpic.com/b4vtkd

    Stuff transferred. Now waiting for some hocus pocus with the clearing agent’s guy and the officer. “just wait here for 5 minutes”. :-)

    Waiting for superintendent signature, apparently. Still waiting, moved to the waiting area now.
