GuateMala – The “M” is for mail

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 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:

This flyer I received today and is probably the best designed flyer I have ever seen for a missing pet:

It's Holly and she is missing!  Holly is a pet of a 9 year old boy with downs syndrom. She needs help finding her home and she misses her owner a lot!

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!
