The Golgi body - a city's postal system
The Golgi body receives newly formed materials and proteins from the Endoplasmic reticulum and sends them to the parts of the cell needed. This example is very similar to the city for many reasons. To get your package or letter (protein or other materials) to the post office (Golgi body) you might need to take a road (endoplasmic reticulum ).
