Apostolos\’ Daily Plate

The (very very) long trip of a book

Posted in Χωρίς κατηγορία by asyropoulos on 4 Σεπτεμβρίου, 2017

On April 13, 2017 I went to the local office of the Greek Postal Service in order to send a book to a friend who lives in Rio de Janeiro. I sent the book by registered mail so to be able to track the parcel. The following screenshot shows how long it took to arrive to London airport.

From Greece to the UK

The third line says that the parcel arrived to the UK on 19/04/2017 and «rearrived» there on 01/06/2017. Obviously, they did something extremely stupid and the parcel stayed almost 40 days at the airport. But the good news is that on 07/06/2017 the parcel was on its way to Brazil.

From the UK to Brazil

Surprisingly the book arrived to Brazil on 07/06/2017, that is, the same day. But it was delivered to my friend on 25/08/2017. This means that it took 80 days to go from Curitiba to Rio de Janeiro. The distance between the two cities is 676 Km! I just wonder what is more lousy: the Royal Mail or Correios?
