We had heard a lot about the Indian postal service, but still couldn’t quite believe it ’til we saw it…
This is the process for sending home 500g (not even 1 kilogram) of stuff to Australia:
1. The queue at the post office… after an hour wait they said “go away and wrap your presents in a BOX with WRAPPING”. Right… where to get these things in a dusty Indian village??
3. Then back to the post office…
4. No! Now, you need two copies of your passport photo and fill out this form!
5. Found a photocopier…. so back to the post office…. and….
6. It’s posted!!!!
HOO BLOODY RAY. Only took 2 hours, 4 shops, and a lot of laughs.
