Dear Cristian,

Thank you for your response.  I would like to know your complete mailing address, so I could find out how much it cost to send any magazines to you. By ship , it is much less expensive for you to get the magazines , and less costly than airplane but it does take about 6 weeks or more.  Please le tme know when you can about your address , and I may ship you what you want , and just have you pay the shipping only .  We can talk about this later, Thank you again,

Tim  Brady
