Just received a package from Bologna. 2 weeks on the nose.

The one from Milan, is currently in Queens, NY. They estimate it will arrive 4 weeks on the nose.

Most of the domestic stuff is moveing pretty fast, but we're doing as 3 day quarentine of all mail and deliverys, so the last bit of waiting when "non-essentials" arrive is tough.

if you arent in a hurry its good to know they will eventually make it. My great uncle used to say that anticipation was better than the event you are waiting for.

We are doing something similar. However we figure we can open the box and empty the contents. The contents have probably not been touched in longer than 3 days. We ensure the outside doesnt touch the inside and wash our hands after.
