So if you don’t ask about your stuff or track them, they simply get resent to sender without a warning! I never got a notification that the watch was sent to customs for clearance. I had to call LibanPost (hotline: 1577) to find out. Then I had to go to the main office near the Beirut airport to “clear” the watch.
Apparently, the pebble was either a “threat to national security” or “too expensive” according to the guys at the clearance office. That’s why they had to charge me 40$ and print and scribble on 11 different forms (4 of which were in triplicates). I felt I was picked up by a Vogon ship.
Anyway, it’s here now and I’m feeling good about it. 🙂
