Well, here's the thing. If you are impatient like me, don't go for surface
mail. It sucks. I ordered some stuff from Rider's Mail Order in the U.S.
last month and am still waiting for it to arrive. They state that the
Surface Mail will take about 5-6 weeks, but it still feels like a helluva
long time. I've been constantly checking the mail for weeks and eing
dissapointed every time! Go for Airmail or whatever their equivalent is.
It should only take about a week that way, but it IS considerably more
expensive, especially on large, heavy orders.
