Shipping Packages Inside Vietnam - Part Two

The last time my boxes came down from Hanoi via EMS, the locally
operated express mail service. This time we used the national postal

As you can see the results are pretty similar, although the government
service created a box width gash in my packaging, the overall
structual integrity of the box remained. I packed the loose trinkets
in the middle so nothing fell out.

I picked up the boxes during the lunch hour at the big postal office
in the middle of town next to the cathedral. Surprisingly they were
open and the service was super quick - in and out in less than five
minutes. That is probably because eighty percent of the folks inside
were gawking tourist taking snapshots.
