We got a terrific surprise today when the mail arrived at the MTC. I think the pictures say it all.
Stuffed full of things that just aren't available here in Spain. I'll just say it made Vivienne's day. No, week. No, month.
For those who may have missionary sons or daughters here in Spain and who read our blog, and want to send useful things to eat or ingredients to use, here's a couple of things not sold here: brown sugar, crystal light, molasses among other things. Even things like powdered sugar and decent chocolate chips and good American candy are hard to find once you're out of the main shopping areas of Madrid, and even in Madrid they are hard to find (and expensive).
Any missionary will love a small care package. And it came through with no damage and no additional tariff or customs charge, which surprised us. It came "priority mail" which costs a ton ($78, but it was indeed heavy), so look for a less expensive mailing option if that's a concern.
