Greetings from the glorious land of India!! :) Merry Christmas!!! Remember the true meaning of Christmas.. :) I arrived here safely on Wednesday night, spent Thursday in Bangalore, and then Friday morning I flew out to my new area in......VISAKHAPTNAM 1st Branch!
Michelle: "I know it's expensive but lets send the package via DHL or Fed Ex as it will arrive to him in three days. So if by some Christmas miracle he gets his visa....he can easily transport it back with him to India."
So on Wednesday, December 4th, Jeff goes to the various mailing facilities and finds out that expedited shipping is costly (we knew this to be the case as we had to send Ryan his new debit card earlier this year but it arrived safe and sound in 3 days) Send it via Fed Ex or DHL Express the cost would be $154 !! Crazy!! The USPostalService international priority (supposed delivery date 6-10 business days) $70. Ryan's cute dad decided to send it that way....it is after all less expensive :) So as instructed by Ryan, Jeff put religious (Jesus) stickers on the package and sent it off into the wild, blue yonder....halfway around the world!
Jeff: "Ok....the Christmas package is on its way to the Philippines! You know what is going to happen now.....Ryan's visa will get renewed!"
Of course that is exactly what happened! Ryan seemed to think that his dad was some sort of psychic!! Oh brother!!
So now we are paying to forward the package to India.....most likely another $70 plus (hopefully that's all) Now I get to tease Jeff about the shipping decision.....
DHL or Fed EX $154.00 (3 days)
Priority International $70.00 (6-10 days) PLUS forward package to India $70 plus and so maybe Ryan will get his package in 3-4 more weeks.......haha PRICELESS :) Sometimes I think I may psychic too!
Ryan said that Christmas isn't about getting presents....haha..hopefully he thinks that way in a couple of days.
