postAustralia – The Australian postal service has apologized for delivering a letter half a century after it was sent from an island in the South Pacific.

A couple from Adelaide found the faded postcard, from the French Polynesian island of Tahiti, resting on their doorstep under a gas bill.

It bore a postmark of 1966 and was addressed to one “Robert Giorgio,” according to the Adelaide Advertiser.

The postcard, which was written by someone named “Chris,” reads: “[I am] enjoying myself greatly. The weather is very humid … I’ll try and drop you a note in England.”  More
