In Shanghai, you can post postcards to your future self

If you’ve ever wanted to send letters to your future self — or someone else — but never knew how to for obvious logistical reasons, now you can. In Shanghai, you can locate one of these crafty postcard cafes and post a card as far into the future as you like. There are 365 different boxes, one for each day of the coming year, and if you’d like to send your postcard anytime further into the future, you’ll just have to locate the postal box for that year. Let’s hope the cafes never go out of business — and hold your mail hostage in the process.
