I will be writing home as often as possible... It will take letters awhile to get there!! So please don't get discouraged!! If you want to write, here are the details that you need. If there are any more specific questions just ask!!
Here is my mailing address for training:
Zoe A. Crum, Peace Corps Trainee
Corps de la Paix
SEND ALL MAIL “AIR MAIL”
Mailed letters take about three weeks to arrive in Benin, but packages take longer potentially several months.
Please number all letters, and letter all packages.
DO NOT send anything UPS, FedEx, or DSL (I will be charged A LOT to pick the package up in Benin if you do). Use the USPS only. CLEARLY mark the contents of the box for customs declarations purposes. (Bubble Envelopes usually arrive better than boxes)
A few other things - -
My phone number now forwards calls to Google Voice. So if you leave me a voice message, I will be able to get it eventually (just not right away). If emailing... use my Gmail address!!
