One of my favorite places to have a beer in Shanghai is Captain Bar, on the top floor of Captain Hostel. They have two-for-one happy hour Monday through Thursday, & a great view of the Pudong side of the Huangpu River.
The other day, I went there to meet some friends, & discovered that the hostel is offering a new mail service to travelers. For 2 RMB (about US 30 cents) a piece, they will mail letters & postcards for you on any day of the year.
It's a cool idea, but I find myself wondering why someone would want to wait to send a postcard. Maybe you could send a postcard to your future self, wishing yourself a happy birthday or something.
What about you? Would you leave a card on this wall to be mailed on a future date?
