Letters from the US to Doha require 90 cents postage - that's air mail - and it takes 7-10 days to arrive. I got my first Doha mail from my great niece, Katie Brown in Arizona, last week - thanks, Katie! I'll post her picture so you can see what a cutie she is.
In case you want to write me, my mailing address is:
Virginia Commonwealth University
School of the Arts in Qatar
P.O. Box 8095
Note: there is no house-to-house mail delivery here. That's understandable since it can be pretty hard to find street signs around here - and there is so much building going on that maps become out-of-date quickly.
