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$)
