I have not seen a nesting doll in a long time, I just noticed that the background of the doll matched another strip on it and it's layered.

The town of Gelsenkirchen is located relatively close to Düsseldorf with 240000 residents.It seems to me like a lot of German towns have the word "Kirche" (Church) in their names

Some stamps that came with the card, the one with my name on it is the envelope it all came with.

Original art by Hazardoflove on Deviantart

This is a really cool looking card, I really do love it however there is one problem, a nice big watermark on the front. Seems the art was most likely stolen, which is a shame.

Well isn't this cool? I'm impressed by the variety of air mail stickers that there are in the world, this card is from the "translation tag."

I just realized I had asked for "Lamp" before, in all fairness the hippo is in there because it can be read as "water horse." Hell yes, it's a water horse! XD
