    I inadvertently sent a package to Peter using First Class Mail International

    The postal worker suggested it because it was cheaper. I had no idea First Class Mail International could be problematic. I've always had to use Priority Mail International due to the weight of the package - greater than 4 pounds.

    I sent the 2-pound package to St. Petersburg May 2 from the U.S. When should she expect it?

    No. I didn't even think about getting a tracking number. I'm hoping it will get there by this Friday, though.

    You saying May 2. Do you mean March 2nd, April 2nd or you actually mean May 2nd 2011?
    The package usually reaches Russian border within 5 days but then it could easily sit on Russian customs for 2-4 weeks

    I'm sorry. I meant April 2.

    The chances are a lot higher for that than for this Friday

    I sent a package to someone in Russia and she never got it. No idea what happened. I sent it as regular first class mail.

    Из-за сбоя в работе почтовой службы Великобритании открытка, посланная в 1929 году незадолго до краха на Уолл Стрит, прибыла по нужному адресу только в 2008-м (по иронии судьбы, как мы знаем теперь, тоже накануне краха). Что примечательно, открытку упаковали в конверт Королевской почты с отметкой «Приносим извинения за задержку».
    There's still time!
