Well, i did send to those of you who sent to me...

but it is likely that mail art from Greece to the States will be "stored"

at the post office for a long time yet :-(

Many thanks to my fellow Americans who sent, stay safe:

USPS keeps a list of countries that are subject to temporary suspension of service.

Currently Greece is not on that list, so I will continue to send for now.

Subject to change, of course.

Kat - That's a good suggestion, to post on the website about what mail is actually arriving. I posted something yesterday from the UK to the USA, assuming it would eventually get there. The postal service's website says, '... Most major export routes remain open and we continue to accept and process mail. Specifically, Royal Mail’s international services to the USA remain operational.'

Oh, dear, 'just found out that a batch of mail art that I sent (through the outside-the-post-office-drop-box) may NOT be going to USA, Canada,Australia,Taiwan and other countries, (perhaps one day will all be returned to me?)

A list of countries where I will be able to send and receive mail

is posted at the Hellenic Post website, which I did not see until now:

ALBANIA, AUSTRIA, BELGIUM, BULGARIA, CANADA, CZECH Rep., DENMARK, FINLAND, FRANCE, GERMANY, GREAT BRITAIN, HUNGARY, ICELAND, ITALY, LATVIA, LITHUANIA, LUXEMBOURG, Ν. MACEDONIA, NETHERLANDS, NORWAY, POLAND, PORTUGAL, ROMANIA, SLOVAKIA, SLOVENIA, SWEDEN, SWIRTZELAND.

Obviously, only to European countries, as there are no international flights, maybe the mail is going "surface mail" by train or trucks? We shall see :-(

IF anyone receives mail art from Greece, please let me know.

And I think another, sent March 10 :)

Comment by FinnBadger on April 8, 2020 at 8:15pm

Amazing. I think I sent mine March 4th.

Katerina, good to hear from you in your regular IUOMA posts, and I am pleased that the Coffee Clutch arrived. Today (Wednesday 08-Apr) I am dropping off mail at the post office (outside drop box!) and will send you an envelope whose contents will be appropriate to the spring. Stay well!

Comment by Katerina Nikoltsou (MomKat) on April 8, 2020 at 4:17pm

Well I am in lock down until May 1st....so there is plenty of time to sort and blog :-)
