Abroad Addresses! (Send me stuff, yo)

If anyone is interested in sending me anything while I am overseas, here are a list of addresses of the places I am staying and the dates  I will be there. Any gaps in time that you see are when we will be on excursions and won’t be able to receive mail.

When writing to a person on this program, the envelope should be addressed in the normal way except that the name of the country should always be in a separate line.  Example:

Jane or John Doe
Ataturk Enstitusu
Bogazici University
80815 Bebek, Istanbul

In the lower left corner of the envelope should be written:  “St. Olaf Program.”

Note that airmail is the only acceptable way.  You should allow a minimum of ten days for a letter to reach an address.  It is not a problem if a letter gets to its destination ahead of the group.  It will always be waiting for the addressee.

NOTE:  Receiving packages in Egypt is EXTREMELY problematic – avoid sending packages to Egypt.

Airmail postage is $1.05 per ounce.

In the following listing, the first date is the date of arrival, the last is the date of departure.  In most cases, mail is not delivered on Sundays.
