Money transfer

I've made the money transfer to the Ukrainian company, which makes the geiger counter I've ordered. This was not so easy as it sounds. Unfortunately it is a royal pain in the ass to make a simple bank transfer. Even between two neighboring countries, like Slovakia and Ukraine. It is pretty sad, that you need to fill out endless forms - which even contains the home address of the beneficiary. Then the money travels from bank to bank, halfway across the world. Yeah, like it would be as simple as changing a couple numbers in a database. Or is it? I'm starting to value the power of Visa and MasterCard.
Right now I'm wondering whether the transfer was even successful. I'll know in a couple of days. Keep reading, will let you know. :)
