    Today, I received my driver license renewal mailed from Washington State on March 7th. It was post marked June 9 in Dumaguete. It took 4 months to travel from Dumaguete to Tanjay City. Thankful to receive it!

    Perhaps it was literally 'snail mail' as, due to unforeseen lack of delivery drivers, they employed a snail.

    That is fast!
    I got mail post marked Valencia a month earlier. I personally checked with the Postal person and was told "Sorry Sir, no mail" three weeks after it was post marked and a month before it was delivered. I live just 1 kilometer from the post office. Three weeks, times every kilometers to Tanjay City, I think you got it QUICK.:o o:

    I was glad to know that my license was not delayed because of the US Postal Service. Retired from there after 38 years. As it arrived in Manila 10 days after mailing. But, when our Wells Fargo debit cards expired during this time, we used DHL...paid $75 fee, alot more than $2 spent on USPS, but received cards OK in 1 months time. It is better to bypass Phil Post if possible. Lesson learned.

    Waiting for a letter from the UK sent in April (snail mail). I wonder if I will receive it this year! Not holding my breath.

    My gf received a package here in Valencia (addressed to me) from Japan a few weeks after it was sent. They sent me a text message when it arrived and asked if I could come pick it up. Maybe adding a phone number to the shipping address would speed things up?

    Part of the problem with mail in this country generally is obviously that just about nobody has a proper address.
    Many roads/streets have no name, many houses have no house number.
    Every time regular mail actually gets delivered I am surprised. How the couriers manage to find where to deliver documents/a package shall remain a mystery to me.

    They ask a question. Typically where does the foreigner live and then follow the pointed lips...Easy
