The mail system around Guatemala is similar to ours back in the United States. You can send packages through Litegua (also an excellent bus service) or the good, old fashion US Postal Service equivalent: El Correo. Just look for the big red buildings with a logo similar to the US postal service.
The proud eagle will gladly bring your mail in a relatively timely manner!
Hmmm this looks similar to the US postal service logo…. or MLB! I’m guessing that is a Quetzal instead of an Eagle since that’s the national bird here.
The other interesting thing that happens here often is people randomly putting flyers under your door. I know that happens in the US, but usually it’s usually through the US Postal Service. Here it’s a little different.
Whoever is promoting their business will send out workers (or whoever wants a little extra cash) to slip flyers under your door. We are in a pretty quiet neighborhood, so the frequency of flyers is low. Here are a couple we have gotten since moving here in February:
Ahhh natural manicures and pedicures! Sounds like something I’m not too interested in. Sorry random flyer!
Oh how exciting! I’m invited… but wait, the spanish one says “Do not miss”. Now I’m confused, am I still invited?
Maybe you have seen me with my long hippie hair and decided I need a haircut? Thanks for that, I’ll be stopping by when I have some time to get a trim 🙂
Now this is something I can use! Chinese take out! But are you as good as the competition?
You’re flyer looks a little nicer, but you don’t have less selection than your competitor. Also, why are there so many Chinese places in Guatemala?
My room mate has a membership to your gym. However, I already do yoga and soccer, so I’m not interested at this time. One the plus side, if I do change my mind, your gym is only 3 blocks from my house.
This flyer I received today and is probably the best designed flyer I have ever seen for a missing pet:
This is Holly and she is missing! Holly is a pet of a 9 year old boy with downs syndrome. She needs help finding her home and she misses her owners a lot!
As I venture through Antigua, I’m always excited to see and learn new things. Sometimes you don’t even have to leave your own home to experiences the subtle differences.
And one thing is for sure, I am going to say “Holly! Come here holly!” to every dog I see today!
