There was an intriguing sign outside the Calitzdorp post office:
It was so odd that I halted for a closer look:
This is what the sign announced:
Why would the post office be closed for that length of time?
It turned out that the sign did not actually relate to the closure of the post office, but to the small hair salon tucked behind the arch in the same building. The hairdresser found it amusing that so many people would pop in to ask why the post office would be closing!
I hope she gained a few more clients as a result.
