The postal clerk "assumed" that the paper bag being from France,
must be wrapped with the other item from France...and rubber-band fastened, too.
However, while one might expect a paper bag from In Seine, it was indeed from TiAr (blog coming)
Artist in Seine sent scents of Paris on his mail art card:
But with postage from......Sri Lanka! Wow!
That's a first for me! Special joy to follow In Seine as he travels around the world!
Nice bar codes, and a regal Lion, too, on the flip side!
All the best A-i-S! Happy travels to you...
xxx and many thanks for all you send.
