La Post Van

French postal van outside the Bar l'Arnica in the village of Tinteniac, the Isle et Vilaine area of Brittany. The village is close to the pretty Ille et Rance Canal.  Postie was in a hurry delivering to the bar, perhaps because it was a Saturday and more importantly for a Frenchman, midday. Somewhere 'dejeuner' was waiting.

For me, it seems so strange to see a yellow postal van! Ours are bright red and only deliver and pick up to/from post offices! Our posties ride motor bikes! Even more amazing, you have a postal run on a Saturday! Ours are Monday to Friday only!

A very interesting post and thank you for joining Weekend Mailbox!

Enjoy your weekend!

Ours have either push bikes or vans. I wonder what other colours countries use for post. Cyrprus has bright yellow postboxes, which are British boxes which we are used to seeing red, its like being an alternative universe.
