whether the sender and receiver are both in what the mail service considers a major centres. If you are sending from a rural address to a rural address you can expect the maximum wait no matter which country starts the sending process.
I live in London. I'm pretty sure that's a 'major centre' ;-) I have no idea how big Sasquewitchywitchy*keyboardmash*etan is, but I get the impression it's not enormous.
(I am, by the way, taking the piss out of my inability to pronounce the name and not the place itself. I bet it's a lovely place, but I am too stupid to say it!)
LMAO!!!!!! I'm gonna have to save that Pers! made my day! I get a kick out of living in Saskatchewan, because if you don't live in canada you can't pronounce it the first few times around. here's the break down though, for future reference: sask-AT-che-wan like it looks, but oh so confusing to look at. Its a native word that means something. Anyway. It is tiny. the province it self is even small but does have "major centers" - if you consider less then 500,000 people major.. it is for here.... so maybe that's the delay....
