Like much of India, Allahabad has a climate influenced by the monsoon season, which peak in July and August. The amount of rainfall here is not as intense, nor does it last for months, compared to other parts of the country. The season are roughly the same though: a pleasant, dry, sunny time from November to early March, when temperatures are mostly between 26 and 32 °C and nights can even be chilly with a record of around zero. From March onwards, both temperatures and humidity built up and in May and June temperatures can hit 45 °C. After September, things get drier and less hot again.
Allahabad is connected to Delhi by air.

India Post is the national postal service of India, and on their website you find details about prices to send postcards, letters and parcels, both domestically and internationally. For most postcards to send internationally, it is better to visit the post office before writing on the card as you may need quite a few stamps. Parcels must be taken to a tailor, he will then sew it up in white linen. Make sure he seals it with red wax, otherwise the post office may refuse to send it or try to get you to pay them to do it. Sewing up a parcel should only cost 50rs to 200rs. In general, post offices are open from 10:00am to 1:00pm and 1:30pm to 4:30pm in most bigger towns and cities, though there are regional variations and some might keep longer hours or be open during (part of) the weekend as well. Ask around.
