Our refill solution relies on equipment we purchased (or had donated) in the UK. Nothing especially high tech, but essential all the same. Since it was too much to take on the plane, I sent it by Parcelforce. It was the first international package I had sent to India, and I was a little uncertain I got the customs declarations right. But it seemed to go off OK and, fingers crossed, it would arrive 4-7 days later in Aurangabad.

BUT… it seems to have got stuck. It left the UK on schedule, but so far as we can tell it’s now stuck somewhere in Mumbai airport where it has spent the last 5 days with no updates since it landed. Mmmm.
