A few Postcards to share

from Moscow

from Moscow

Here is another postcard that I just love!  It shows Post Office slogans and logos from around the world!  Love, love, love!  This great card comes from Galja in Moscow, Russia.  Galja is a biochemist.  Her favorite books are “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, “Illusions” by Richard Bach and the novels by Ray Bradbury.  She said it was windy and rainy when she was writing this.

Russian stamps.  The top one shows the Russian post service in the 19th century.

The second postcard comes from Laura in Lappeenranta, Finland.  She is studying to be a nurse.  She and her boyfriend have a cat named Isla and a dog named Rasmus.  She hopes to work in a day care center after she graduates.  Wow!  I wish nurses worked in day care centers here in the States!

Finnish bear stamp.  I love bears!

The last card today is from Vivian in the Netherlands.  She said she would soon be going to South Africa to volunteer for an NGO (Non-governmental organization) to help children.  I am in awe!  She has done this before.  This is her second trip.  It’s easy to talk about helping people around the world.  It’s something else altogether to put your money where your mouth is, so to speak.  The card shows a flock of flamingos.  I think it’s a self-made card, but I’m not sure.  It says “shutterstock” on the back.  I think that may be a European version of something like zazzle.

More soon!
