You've Got Mail!

I LOVE getting real mail here in Honduras. It's just such a rare occasion to receive something in the real mail! In fact, we don't even know our own mailing address. (How do we receive our bills, you ask? We don't. Sometimes the ticket for the electricity/water is stuck under the door of the house. Other times, it's not. Then you have to pay it online via your bank, or go to the bank to pay it. With cable/internet and cell phones, we don't get a bill...we just have to know when they're due!) So when friends ask me how to send me cards and packages from the US, I have to give them my in-laws address.

Now that I think of it, I have never seen a mail carrier or a mail truck....I have no idea where the post office is located or how to send a package/letter via snail mail. Hmmm, maybe this is something I should investigate!
So anyway, I love getting mail. And I was so excited when I saw TWO letters in my hubby's hands when he came from a visit at my in-laws house the other day.
Letter one was just a bank statement from the US. I LOVE my bank in the US...can you believe they send my statements all the way down here??
Letter two was a Christmas card from my friend Amy. She sent the card from Tennessee on December 10 and it arrived in Honduras on December 28. The envelope was torn on the back...but the card inside was fine!
Thanks Amy! And to the rest of you....send me more letters!! ;)
