A delay in shipping -- but we're OK

Well, the books were not actually on the MSC Levina..... Paperwork that we received 10 days later showed that the shipment was bumped "due to space constraints" on the overbooked ship. We held our breath waiting to get confirmation that the shipment is on the MSC NOA, which left the port today (whew). The good news is that, pending the rest of the travel going as scheduled, we will actually be in South Africa when the shipment arrives in Port Elizabeth August 2. And, we'll get to see the library trucked into the school. So maybe that's what was supposed to happen after all. :) Smooth travels, MSC NOA.
