Send me an email to get my snail mail address. Your letter will make my day!
Thinking about sending a care package? First of all, you’re awesome. Secondly, there are some things I can’t get here and/or crave, in case you’re interested. I’ll add to the list as things occur to me:
- Books and magazines.
- Crossword puzzles!
- Candy that includes chocolate and/or nuts.
- Cheese. Believe it or not, you can send just regular ol’ cheese and it will make it here, maybe a little moldy, but still oh-so-satisfying.
- Pork products. Smoked pork holds up surprisingly well.
- Beef jerky.
- Dried fruit (not the sugary kind, but the fruity kind. Trader Joe’s and Sunkist make some delicious varieties.)
- Waxed dental floss.
Some tips and tricks:
Not that you were going to, but don’t, under any circumstances, send anything electronic through the mail! The customs duties are exorbitant, and they x-ray packages, so you can hide stuff, but you can’t really.
Things take anywhere from 10 days to 2 months to get here.
Any mail is awesome — including good, old-fashioned letters.
