    Beste,

    Ik had u pakket klaargemaakt maar ben in ziekenhuis terecht gekomen. U zending ligt in mijn auto normaal hoop ik morgen naar huis te mogen en breng ik het meteen binnen. Mijn excuses voor het ongemak is niet van mijn gewoonte dat het zo lang duurt. Maar dit is een kwestie van overmacht.

    Mvg
    Anthony

    il venditore ha spedito celermente. Purtroppo la merce non corrispondeva alle aspettative. I gemelli da polso sono di metallo dorato e argentato e non di oro o di argento come lasciava intendere.
