I love that the mail in Amsterdam is delivered by bicycle.
We saw the postman in Amsterdam in 2013, when we were on our way to the bike shop where I bought my bike in 2008. I stopped him in the street to ask if I could take his photo. A short while later he delivered the mail to the bike shop Paul and I were in. Cheerfully, he told the shopkeeper that he had just met us on the street and I had taken his photo. At least that is what I think he said!
Our postman, Allan, also has a set of wheels. Allan always has a smile and a cheerful word. He has a great attitude about the weather. If it is July and it is hot, well, that is what the weather is like in July.
I saw a kindred spirit between these two postmen, an ocean apart. I salute the postmen and postwomen of the world!
