My little job today was to mail out 30 or so pounds of coffee. They were headed for USA, Canada, France, the Netherlands, UK and one for Panama City. That took me serious post office time, followed by homework with reams of brown paper and silicon glue. I was informed by the nice ladies behind the counter that my parcels were just not good enough. So now, here I am learning the old fashioned art of making parcels out of brown paper and glue. No tape is allowed by the Panama postal service.
This feels like it completes my back to the future transition into the retro world that is small town Boquete, Panama. A world where: Where men dig holes with spades and ladies wrap packages in brown paper stuck together with glue.
