God this is hard to post on this forum after so long... Last time i was here i was living the life, partying and meeting up with so many good people in BsAs.

Many thanks.....

Shipping costs from Argentina are staggeringly higher than sending things to Argentina.

Three years ago the rate for FedEx for 25KG was about $350 US Dollars (to the USA).

cheers steve! If i could get similar to the UK thats not all a bad price, depending on the cost of the product of course. I have been in touch with taragui and Havanna with regard to ordering from the UK, but typically i aint heard back!!

Do you know off the top of your head the price for mate, havanna alfajores etc??

if its 350dollars for 25kg, it would probably be cheaper to buy a plane ticket and bring it back it person. Also avoid any customs nasties.

Another bonus being - you get to come back to BA :)
