Once a letter addressed to me has also been opened, but the money was still 
in there. Maybe they looked for something else inside those sheets of 
aluminum foil. So I guess it's not a good idea to make the letter completely

If it helps, you can give money to Joe Forster (also in Budapest) and then 
have it "transferred" to me, without costs. But then the money is only inside 
Germany, and I don't have a paypal account. But I could transfer the money to 
another German without costs and then *he* could do the paypal stuff? Anyone 
with a paypal account here?

Another option would be to ask Richard Atkinson if he can send the money 
inside the UK. I owe him some money anyways and if he doesn't mind if I owe 
him some more? Richard, are you still on this list?
