So my hair is now BROWN, no longer fake blond ;-), for Togo! We wouldn't want me to have brown roots and ugly pictures for two years, now would we?!! They say this is my natural color...it's been so long that I can't remember!
Letters take 2-5 weeks to arrive; packages a bit longer. I believe the postage for a letter 1st class, air mail will be $.98. As for packages, be careful...the cost will quickly sky rocket. Use this to estimate the price. Flatrate boxes are $42. I promise I'll appreciate a letter just as much as lots of chocolate ;-) Make sure you send all mail by airmail and it is under 5lbs. Don't insure it...They say it's not worth it!
