My wife’s Christmas gift shipped by UPS on the 8th of the month. It gets here today, the 14th. More transit time than I had expected is seen in the tracking details below.
So, what is the gift? An Apple Pro 10.5 Tablet purchased with thousands of available credit card reward points. Apparently, Apple manufactures them in China and has no inventory in the USA. Do we have to learn to read mandarin to set it up? If yes, I will use dictionary.reverso.net/english-chinese/mandarin or a similar source.
Shipment tracking is a handy service that shows details of stops it made along the way.
