Variation on the Chilean Connection

Recently, we have noted that, as Latin American cocaine production has shifted from Columbia, a new transit route to Europe is developing. Heretofore, we have noted that it has flowed from Bolivia through Chile and, hence, to the Balkans. Hence, we have dubbed it "The Chilean Connection."

However, if the cocaine originates in Peru, it need not transit Chile but rather may proceed directly:

The police found the drugs in a container that arrived at the port of Constanta [Romania] from Peru last week. The cocaine was bound to Hungary.
