The world’s highest post office (in the Himalayas) is today’s topic. As the description reads, “Rinchen Chhering has been the devoted postmaster since it opened in 1983. Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night keeps Chhering from getting to work every day.”
While it’s a fascinating three-minute video, I have to wonder if some of my recent postal mail had been routed there first. I mean, two and a half weeks to get something across town? I suppose we do take our post office efforts for granted, don’t we? Think about how isolated this mountain community would be without it!

What an amazing story, Steve. And what a labor of love for Mr. Chhering. It makes me ever so thankful for our own mail deliverer, and for the relative ease of mailing letters, documents, packages here. Thanks for a great insight into the life of someone in a very different environment than ours.
