Could you let me know...

...if you receive a postcard from Vietnam?

We sent out 40 of them before leaving that country over a month ago, and so far no one has told me that they received one. I'm beginning to give them up for lost. :(

We heard stories about stamped cards and letters never reaching their destinations from Thailand because people steal the stamps, and I'm beginning to think that is what happened in Vietnam. :(

I just received it today! The mail men must have read your blog and decided to do something about it.

Thank you! *hugs*

V. sad. But I once had a postcard take two months to reach someone from Italy, so...

*nods* Some people have received theirs, so I'm hoping yours will not be far behind.

Nope. But then I don't know if I was on the list in the first place. :D

You were. So far I know of four people who have received theirs, and at least 2 of them told me they were postmarked APRIL 9th! One month after we left Vietnam. :(

Fear not, mine arrived today.

I vaguely recall hearing something about how the Vietnamese postal service is rather slow.
