Wednesday, January 5th "Santa didn’t make it this year"

Seems a package sent to us took a long while to make it to Spain and didn’t stay very long after arrival. Although there have been improvements in the Spanish mail system the biggest problems still remain on the receiving end while in Spain. While letters and packages sent abroad most often make it (length of time varying) there is a higher percentage of problems with arrivals. Our Christmas presents showed up for a few days and then were shipped back home – after $70 in shipping costs. Kind of heart-breaking for the family, not to mention the money they lost. So we will wait until this summer to celebrate Christmas.
