BBM3 - A four month trek to Italy
There are about a dozen BBM3 packages which never arrived. Nancy's package for Pascale was shipped in mid November and four months later was finally delivered to Pascale - YES! Dare I hope that a few more will surface?
Hope you are well. Do you remember me? I’m Pascale, from Italy and took part in your BBM 3 last November, but I’ve not received my package... until Thursday. Yes, it has finally arrived!
Nancy sent it to me from San Francisco on November 16: it took exactly 4 months to reach Italy – quite incredible. I guess Nancy would have taken the same time if she came here on foot and handed it over personally!!
Imagine my surprise when I arrived home and found a note saying there was a large parcel for me at the post office. Nancy’s package included various sugary snacks and also wasabi peas, which I had never tried before. And there was a very nice letter describing her Thanksgiving American/Asian traditions, together with two beautiful cards with pictures of the farmer’s market in San Francisco and interesting recipes. Finally, three food sections of her local newspaper and a nice picture of her kitchen. I enclose a picture of her package – Sorry for the poor quality, but my camera is quite old.
Have a nice day
