Gizo Customs & Post
19 December 2008 | Gizo
We took care of all of our business today. The customs office in Gizo is right next door to the Gizo Hotel. The officer was going on holiday at close of business Friday so there would be no customs until January if we didn't handle things now. The officer was happy to clear us out for the 28th though, a week in advance. It is very laid back here in Gizo.
Hideko had packed up the carvings we got for some family members in Marovo Lagoon. The trick was not shipping them, it was finding the post office in the first place. After some investigation it turned out that the post office was the non-descript building in the middle of the market with no windows or signs. We got the carvings out to Japan and the US for only about $50 US, not bad for the size boxes in question.
