Sixty Miles per Day

The other day we received our postcard from Timor Leste. We mailed it on December 6th in 2013, so it took about 134 days. The distance from Dili to Hamburg is 7734 miles as the crow flies, which works out to about 60 miles per day. Going from New York to San Francisco in the 1860s the Pony Express travelled at 258 miles per day.

We mailed a number of postcards on December 6th, 2013 at the central and only post office of Timor Leste in Dili.

Did you get a card from us? How long did it take?
