I am not sure if the site of A box from is still working, but I think it is an original idea. This is: send boxes with several typical items from a country the receiver has never been to (as Iran and South Korea, so far). The cost is 40 €, and the box weights about 1 kg. You can see the content here.
Sometimes when I travel I sent this kind of little treasures to my friends. I never thought it could be a idea for a business (indeed, I live in an exotic country...). What do you thing? Would you like to pay for receive a box like these? I have only got one postcard from Iran to date, from a friend who visited that country. And one postcard from South Korea (through Postcrossing). But I am not sure about the idea of paying for getting mail.
Oh, now I remember I have received an Iranian picture that I love a lot. It was sent by Heleen from the Netherlands:
|Iran, 1960, by René Burri.
