Where there is a will, there is a way...

Dakar does not have a mail delivery system. Maybe because there are no specific street addresses. From what I understand, there is a post office where mail 'may or may not' arrive. Supposedly, if you know that you are expecting a letter, you can check in to the post office every few days to see if it has arrived. Packages 'may or may not' show up as well, and there is certainly no 'mailman'.

Today someone delivered a piece of mail. I'm assuming it was someone that worked at the post office who figured they would drop it off on their way home from work. It was slipped under our gate...

And where there is a will, there is a way... It was a bill for Laird from Maine Medical Center! Postmarked on April 5, arriving today on April 20. 15 days....not too bad!

Looks like we won't be late paying this one!

  1. That's awesome. It took Maine Medical Center almost a year to bill Jesse for a procedure he had done and we only live 6 miles away!
