The letters took a whole month to get from South Africa to China!
Justin and I took a walk to find the post office this week, and we had no issues sending the letters. The lady who helped us even spoke a bit of English. We told her where the letters needed to go, in Chinese, and everything else went by smoothly. The only odd part of the process was the amount of stamps that we had to affix to each envelope. Ha!
I love writing letters. I am grateful to have found others who are just as excited, and want to share this experience with me. I look forward to exchanging many letters over the years to come. Justin and I have been good at sending postcards, but letters are even more personal and sweet.
Isn’t it amazing how the simplest of tasks becomes something you need assistance with when you live surrounded by a foreign language. This is something that we got used to in South Korea, especially because we could read, and partially understand, Korean. Here in China it is going to take some time to adjust to our new city. We are thankful for all the help that we get from others!
