I am traveling to India for the first time next week. Will be traveling through out the country for almost a month. Not sure when and where I will have Internet access. On top of that, some friends back home don't do email anyway. Would like to let them know I am alive and well.
My questions are: are post cards practical for this? Do they have post cards there? How long do they take to get to the USA? Do you think I'll be back home before the cards get here?
Could not find the right forum to post this in. Hope this is OK.
Thanks in advance.

I also couldn't think of a better thread to post your question in!

You will find plenty of places to buy postcards, of course in touristy areas. I was in Varanasi last fall, sent some postcards to Chicago and San Francisco, and they got to their destinations in about 10 days. I was impressed.

You'll also find plenty of internet access too. But getting an email just isn't as much fun as a postcard. An interesting thing to do is to go to the post office.
Where are you traveling to? Some cities have wonderful post offices. (Jaisalmer is my favorite, so far)

Welcome on IM
[ Not sure when and where I will have Internet access. On top of that, some friends back home don't do email anyway. Would like to let them know I am alive and well.
No problem most place you can have intenet access cheap about 25 rupees so no worries there.

My questions are: are post cards practical for this?
not everyday .but call to usa is cheap and eay so 10 rupees everyd will do 3 to 4 min call to usa from pco not hotel.


Do they have post cards there?

Yes
How long do they take to get to the USA?
same as from usa to india may be 4 to 6 days if airmail can not say about normal mail.

Do you think I'll be back home before the cards get here?
air mail will be there in 1 week .
James there is good post and phone service and cheap compare to us so i would not worry for them. Have a good trip.
. Hope this is OK.
