Mail from Saudi Arabia

It is cloudy.

Have just received a letter from Saudi Arabia, which I had posted to myself at Medina Airport on Dec 31, 2008.  Therefore it took 46 days for delivery all the way from Medina to Tokyo.  It is amazing that a small piece of paper can surely be delivered to any address written onto it through the world’s postal service.  However, when I think it took as much as 1.5 month for delivery, it is somewhat crazy in this information-oriented speed society.

Postage for international mail from Saudi Arabia: 3 SR(≈0.8 US$)
