From nearby (sort of)

I've been buying stuff online mainly from State-side. So it's high time I try buying something from a 'nearby' store for a change. 

Nothing fancy, just some spare parts. The objective- to test reliability from merchants who are less conversant in English. It was a risky affair to say the least because the communication from the check out time till final payment was based on translation. However, we should not harbour adverse expectations from people whose lingua franca differ from ours. It's a human consideration & should be an exercise in trust more than anything else. So here's another adventure in buying stuff online & the reduction of domestic reliance.
