Direct Swap - Cuba from Agi

I can't tell you the number of times I have had friends or family vacation to Cuba and send me postcards. I would venture to say at least 6 visits and multiple cards. Now guess how many have arrived? Zero, zippo, zilch, nada! I was starting to think the mail must have been flying over the Bermuda Triangle. So back in November Agi posted in the forum that she was travelling to Cuba and was offering to swap. I thought it was pretty cool that she asked for her card to be received first before I or anyone else sent our cards. I guess she heard of my problems lol! While I did touch base with her after her trip nothing arrived. And then last week (insert heavenly music here) my card arrived! Wow!!! I don't know how she managed where so many have tried but it arrived. To top it off she used a dinosaur stamp - I {love} dinosaurs! I am simply thrilled. Plus with the arrival of this card it is taking some heat off my sister who leaves for Cuba next week. Who knows I may start to get flooded with cards from Cuba now. Hoping my card to Agi arrives soon and makes her smile just as much.

    1. Thanks for your kind words :) Glad to hear the other cards you sent are slowly arriving. My sister gave up, she sent me a dozen blank cards when she got home for swaps.

  2. p.s. - a few people have received my cards in the last week, full SIX months after they were sent!
