Sorry for the silence. Today was my last day in the New World, and I went to send a postcard at the Palacio Postal in Mexico City's historic centre. I did not actually expect a palace.

I was even more impressed when I saw this gigantic mosaic depicting the Aztec's founding story - when the nomad tribe saw an eagle eating a snake on a cactus, that is where they founded Tenotichtlan (later Mexico City). I had to look thrice to believe the whole thing was made out of stamps.

Now this is dedication to Old World mail.
