Great package which survived traveling via mail from Australia to the Netherlands:

And inside a cheerful and colourful content:

It was part of a 'Random objects' swap at the LEP.
Meanwhile I had send a teaspoon, packed in a small (so to the mail companies: odd shaped) package:

I am not sure whether it has arrived or not (and if not, if it will arrive at all - so I sent an other random object, this time packed in a normal shaped postal package, so not shown here :-) ).

Sent my first odd mail for the contest! I hope it will arrive well. However  it not really is strange mail: when I submitted the entry form, the receiver replied that he liked it and that he already had received a green one! :-)

Thanks to Eva's weblog post my attention was attracted to this contest:  Ripley's Strange Mail Contest!

Sure all of you must have great ideas to post to Ripley, looking forward to see it here, too (if you want to participate and share your picture here, too, of course) :-)

Sorry to hear we have a Banana that is MIA! I bet it'll turn up.

I still keep hope it'll arrive one day!

Anyhow, the pickle is great, too!

It may need help?

Foldable banana (approx. 75 cms when unfolded).

Sent to Greece. I'm looking forward to knowing if it'll arrive. 

(Apoplogies for the changing of the 'K' into a 'C', Katerina! It was easier to write it this way :-)
