Not havign received anything, and being too busy, only Thursday I checked the website of DHL what was happening. Clearance delay already for a few days. Next time I make sure they have the correct telephone number, so that they can call me.
So I phoned them, I had to pay 62 guilders taxes ($25), if I agreed they could send it on. Ok, so in the afternoon they came along. Unfortunately I still had a few meetings before I could go home and unpack the whole thing.

You are lucky...amazon haven't given me the option to track my order...it says it shipped on the 1st of November...haven't seen it since and it should have got here by now!
"This shipment does not have an associated tracking or delivery
confirmation number." OH GREAT!
Last time I go through amazon...Expedited international shipping means they stuck it on an actual ship! will it get hi-jacked by refugees and taken to Australia...for all I know it already has been
