Snail Mail

Today we received three letters and five parcels. It was a strange mix of late Birthday Cards/Gifts (from
Anita’s family and my brother and sister-in-law) and an early Christmas Card from Mum.
Postage can taken an age to get out here from the UK. These items took between two and three weeks to get here – all arrived in tact even the one with cake ingredients (which was a surprise – we imagined them to have been impounded). Part of the issue is that post to the school is collected only twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday). Having said that it seems a little quicker to post things from here to the UK. Taking approximately 10 days to travel. However, for those sending things out here I reckon you need to leave a month to be safe.
