IF you’ve ever wondered how long it takes to get a postcard from Cuba, a Bromesberrow couple may just have the answer.
Joanna and David Read were delighted and puzzled to receive a card showing the Hotel Inglaterra in Havana.
They were delighted because it had been written by their friends and neighbours, Jan and Richard Long, and puzzled because the Longs had posted the card more than two years ago. Mrs Long said: “In spite of having the correct amount of stamp postage and airmail sticker, it seems that the Cuban postal system failed to deliver, not just this card, but five others to family and friends. We will never complain about the British post office again.”
