A postal problem

This morning I went to the post office in front of our office and had a trouble there. I wanted to send a parcel to Europe, a small parcel, just 500g or so. What I found there was that the postage was twice I have checked beforehand and they required me of filling in application forms (not one, but two!) - very troublesome, and they were terribly slow! They said the international postal service has been somewhat changed. I’m not sure if it’s true, maybe because of the silly Olympics in this year? I was so uncomfortable and upset then that I could not recover my composure for hours in the office, also feel it has become very hard to send something to my foreign friends now. How could it happen in this present age? Do they want us being more domestic, inward- looking with no communication with the people in foreign countries?
