English term or phrase: SEE EXPLANATION
I'm helping a Mexican friend translate a letter but there are things I just can't figure out what they mean. If there's someone out there from Mexico, could you please help!! They are all like initials:

C.P.
D.F.
Qro.
Oax.
Pue.

Thanks for you help!

Hi again Amin!
With the exception of the first one, these are all initials or abbreviations of the names of cities and states in the Mexican Republic. I'll list them as follows:

C.P. = Código Postal (zip code) and this should be followed by a 5-digit number, if I'm right.

D.F. = Distrito Federal [Federal District], which is also known as Mexico City..the nation's capital.
Qro = Querétaro (a city and a state).
Oax = Oaxaca (a city and a state)
Pue = Puebla (a city and a state)

Hope this helps:-)
