About a month ago, I was in the market for a SLR camera to bring on my trip.
My cousin Al, one of the biggest ballers in our family, works for a stock company in Holland and every Christmas they give their employees a cool electronic device. I asked him earlier this year what he got this past Xmas and he got an SLR.
So, when I was trying to decide which camera to buy, I texted cousin Al to see how his was.
Ayesha: I’m looking to buy a SLR for Nepal. How is yours? What kind did you get?
Al: I only used it once. If you stop by Amsterdam on your way, you’re free to have it.
Ayesha: SERIOUS??? Hmm..
I thought about my options:
-Stop by Amsterdam on the way to Nepal?
-Get him to send it to my twin bro in England?
-Wait for him to bring it when he visits me in October (IF he visits)
-Send it in the mail
After days of trying to figure out the best way to get it here on time, without paying a lot of duties at customs cousin Al told me his colleague is coming to Toronto 2 days before I leave. So, I not-so patiently waited.
This morning I met his colleague at the hotel to pick up my beautiful gift, from across the Atlantic Ocean, the Nikon SLR D-3100.
Now all I need to is is learn how to use it!!
THANK YOU AL!
