Last Thursday afternoon our time, (25th ), I ordered some things from B&H, a major photography shop in New York. Thanks to the wonders of the internet I have tracked it’s progress, and it arrived this morning. A good service you think? Sure….it was dispatched from B&H within a couple of hours of ordering it, and arrived in Melbourne via Sydney and Honolulu on the 26th in the morning. The amazing part is it took longer for my parcel to reach this little country town only 120 kms from Melbourne, than it did for travelling 17,000 kms NY to Melbourne.
Anyhow…..in case you are wondering, it is a backpack for camera gear that I shall be taking on a most exciting trip later next month!
