This past week was somewhat more active, Postcrossing-wise, than I’ve seen in the last month or so. Four postcards arrived this week. I haven’t received that many in one week in a long time!
The first two to arrive came from completely opposite parts of the world, one from Russia and one from the Deep South of the US.
From Maria in Kazan City in Russia:
I love the magnolia on her postcard. When I lived in the Fraser Valley (of British Columbia), our neighbour had a Southern Magnolia tree. In the heat of the summer, you could smell the flowers, very subtle on the warm summer breeze. Lovely!
Then, yesterday, there were another two cards waiting for me at my computer.
The first is from Hessel, a four year old Dutch born boy, living with his parents in Malaysia. I do wonder what brought them to Malaysia to live.
The final card elicited a little squeal of pleasure from me. It’s another Inge Löök card!
In addition to four cards coming in, another five cards will be going out today. So, all in all, it’s been a busy Postcrossing week.
