BT7: Correios 2

Not surprisingly, the Brazilian mail service has the same name as the Portuguese one - but their mailboxes look quite different.

We did not see many private mailboxes in São Paulo - not of the free-standing variety at least. Most places we saw mailboxes built into the houses. But of course, we are talking about a city where lots of people surround their homes with tall walls topped with barbed wire.
