French Reunion: the postmen of the peaks
"René-Claude and Cyril have an essential role in the life of the Mafatais: they are the bearers of good and bad news, and provide small services such as writing letters. Their mission in these remote and hostile territories is to accomplish the primary task of La Poste, France’s universal postal service; namely the delivery of mail. Every week, they deliver and pick up letters from 300 households spread over small villages, each one more inaccessible than the next."
