Picking Up The Post

There is no postal delivery here in Mwanza, no postman (or woman), no early morning deliveries.
All mail arrives at the Central Post Office where it is collected by the school twice weekly. Letters for the whole family arrive in my pigeon hole at work.

I am here on a Saturday afternoon (the post office is open later here) and having stood around for 15 minutes and still waiting I have sat on a step and started writing this blog piece. Thee is a long queue of others also waiting. I am here to pick up a mystery package addressed to Anita and though this blog piece is at an end my wait is not.

Two parcels arrived after a further 5 minute wait – so only 40 mins waiting!!
