Adventures in a Portuguese Post Office

Lisbon, Portugal is a beautiful, vibrant, and colorful city. It features hand-painted ceramic tiles on most of the buildings, which serve as both decoration and insulation. I had the privilege of living in Lisbon for a month and while I was there, I took a class on how to paint these beautiful tiles. Little did I know that mailing the tiles home to my mom would be far more complicated than actually painting them.
