    wait till she communicates with you since you have the perminant address. You're on the internet, why didn't you open a e-mail account? That is best for this century to communicate besides the mobile phone which Brazil has plenty. If she has some noodles up there, she should get a mobile phone and call you of the location she is at.

    I'm afraid that I have to warn you that in my (extensive) experience the postal service in Brazil is both slow and unreliable. I know of a number of letters/cards which have failed to arrive.
