Getting information from here to there is easier than ever with the advent of the internet and email.
We also have to get letters and packages around the world.
There are physical mail and package and freight delivery, global shipping companies, the US Postal Service and couriers.
The word "Courier" comes from the French for "runner"
The drop dead gorgeous woman in the photo above is sending email across the globe and it gets there in split seconds using one of many email service providers.

Kids learn about email in school now!
What'll they think of next?
