Not really, the fee for sending money to another country would make it double as expensive. Another option is to buy me something nice and send it via regular mail;-)

These slap lessons are great! Breaking them down and explaining the techniques must be a chore for you but they completely appreciated. You, among others, make it look so easy and with practice I am getting much better at it. I was never a slap player and after 25 years of playing I am now just really learning the proper methods. The internet can be a wonderul thing! Thank you for your continued teachings.
