Results of Shipment

Posted by Tia Richardson on May 17, 2011, 1:15 pm, in reply to "How to address a package?"

Well here are the results:

a small U.S. Priority Mail Package weighing 1 pound and measuring 8x6x2 inches arrived in La Manzanilla.

It took 21 days, it cost $14.95US, and it was addressed:

Jane Doe
123 Playa Blanca
La Manzanilla, Jalisco, Mexico 48898

It contained 3 t-shirts, photos, a letter, and the address and phone number of the recipiant inside.

I did not inform the recipant the package was coming. I wanted to see if it would actually make it to a home located in LM (not a business) without any outside assistance, ie: friends, family, etc.

All the items were intact and arrived safe.

Well, I didn't think it would work. My surprise. I will try another test of the mail system soon.
Can you tell I have too much time on my hands?
(ongoing unemployment will do that to a person)
