The package had finally arrived! The delivery guy looked at me to see where I wanted the package. Eager to get rid of the heavy weight he dropped the package and was out the door before I could thank him.
I waited a few minutes to open it half believing it would disappear any moment. When I finally opened it I, for the first time in my life, cried tears of joy.
The reason I was so happy was firstly that the package was from my family in Denmark. Secondly, because it had been delayed a few days because the post office in the Dominican Republic is slow (the package had travelled across half the globe in a shorter time than it had travelled from Santiago to Moca ( a 30 min. drive)).
My mom and dad had gathered a lot of Christmas things to help me get in the right mood for Christmas and so I could show some of our traditions. I emptied the package and was amazed by how much they could stuff in that box.
Here are all the things that were in it I didn’t take pictures of:
- Christmas presents from my family
- Christmas presents from farmor og farfar
- Two drawings from my brother and sister
- En pakke af Juleskum
- En pose med snebolde (slikket)
- En pakkekalender
Here is everything else:
