In the language of the Yoruba people, Ibeji means twin: IBI = born and EJI = two.

In earlier times, the birth of twins was a negative sign, accompanied by many superstitions, including the most tragical one, when people considered that such birth meant there were two fathers, revealing the mother’s adultery and resulting in the murder of the mother and her twins.

    Colis expédier chez B-post le 10/03.
    Vous vous plaignez le 14/03...

    Est ce de ma faute?
    Est ce que cela mérite une évaluation négative?

    Il est préférable de me prévenir via la messagerie afin de faire bouger les choses..

    J'ai contacté immédiatement les services postaux, je reviens rapidement vers vous.

    Amicalement

    Un envoi rapide, un bon emballage, un objet de qualité, mais qui n'est pas à votre gout..vous le précisez vous même.
    Malgré de nombreuses propositions d'arrangements et d'aides, aucune solutions n'a su être trouvées malheureusement.
    Je reste réactif et disponible.

    Amicalement.

    Masque impressionnant et très beau esthétiquement. Grâce à l'opiniâtreté du vendeur, il est arrivé après quinze jours où la poste belge avait failli le perdre.
    Un merci spécial!!!
