FOWC with Fandango: Post

Crow on a Lamp Post in Feldbrunnen

The biggest posts we have are the lamp posts. The crows and storks have decided that they are ideal places for keeping an eye on things.

The local post office

Otherwise there is a Post Office, at least there used to be. This photo has historical value as I took it almost 10 years ago when we still had a post office in our village. They would deal with our payment slips, selling stamps, and other postal tasks. However, it seemed that we had too many post offices in our country and one after the other they were closed. Of course they began with the smaller areas of population, villages like ours, although we did have almost a thousand people living in our village. And so one day it closed the doors forever and we were told that our neighbouring village would now take over the local post office duties.

It is now in discussion whether the post office in the neighbouring village will continue to exist. A second postoffice has already been closed on the borders of our village. Eventually there will be only the main post office in our local town which means a train journey or by car to organise any postal matters. There is also a post office in the village where our supermarket is, but that will be closing some time this year, which is the bad news. The good news is that this post office will now be shifted to the supermarket building meaning if I need a post office, I can visit it when shopping.

In the meanwhile the crows and storks are still occupying our posts.

    • There was a large colony near where we live in Altreu. The storks are still there, but they now let them fly and they make their nests often in our area


      • We used to go to Nördlingen to see the storks (and why does autocorrect say storms????) every year. One of my favourite childhood memories. I hope they are not seen as a nuisance. 😚🙋‍♀️🐝


    • It’s a general idea at the moment to close Swiss Post Offices. you are better off in the isolated places. At least they have a mobile bus that visits.
