Post Office

Sending and receiving mail is one of those small things that I cherish, especially nowadays, when it’s fairly easy to be in touch with those who might be thousands of kilometres away. You just need to use that black slab you’ve got in your pocket. It’s easy and convenient. But the feeling of holding in your hands a postcard, or a letter, or a photo, or… (you get the point!) that travelled from a land far away from you is just is just that extra special! 😉
