Leo has purchased many gifts at the Silk Market, and now wants to send them home. Dani and Leo both go to the post office to buy a shipping box and to send the parcel to Leo's family. Leo learns Mandarin Chinese words and sentences to request to ship his box internationally. Leo learns the Chinese for saying whether he wants to post it by airplane or by ship. The clerk at the post office weighs the box and calculates the price to ship based on how much kilograms it weighs.
You should bring your parcel to the post office unsealed. You will be required to list the contents on the form, and the staff may request to inspect it. You may not be allowed to ship anything that is potentially counterfeit, such as CDs or DVDs. If in doubt, try to bring the original cases for any such items, and receipts if possible. In general, sending a parcel from China is not too expensive and the delivery times are very good.
