My first card from Albania, very very nice and a GF card no less. It's amazing that there are only 10 Postcrossers in the whole country! Also I remembered hearing there was a country whose head shakes meant the opposite from what is commonly interpreted (see opposite head shake at the bottom right.) Very cool to learn that all!
Ah official cards from Canada, very nice. Because of postal rates, I'm always happy to send a card across the country, and he certainly chose a nice one (and language appropriate, since it came from Quebec.)
A very cool looking card from my friend in China! This was displayed at an art exhibit he visited in Beijing. The monkeys are from the Monkey King myth and that the figures were not positioned like in the card according to the sender, they would face opposite directions in an alternating pattern.
I wonder if this more speculation on our part or maybe it's true but it looks like these two are playing "Rock, paper, scissors"! XD
Jetoy bookmarks exist?! :0
This souvenir sheet was very surprising, it would be great to receive mail from Chad one day
These space theme stamps are really cool too! I can't recall any direct space themed stamps being related however for all you trekkies, we have some sweet stuff for the 50th anniversary of Star Trek that was released this month.
I've had this card for awhile and it was high time I sent it to myself :P Luckily this card easily fits Alberta, those types of hares, cows, and cowboys are all over the place here :P
As you can see the cancel is expired, luckily the postmaster was kind enough to let me stamp it anyways. I bought the Christmas stamp there because might as well support the local office, that's only open for 3 hours a day.
The Hamlet of Lyalta as you can see is a stone throw away from the big city, in 2011 a grand total of 26 people lived there. Since I went there in person I took a few photos
The local grain elevator across from the Post Office
The PO, it's nice that such a small community was able to keep theirs. Beats driving to the next town to mail stuff.
A nice multi-view from the UNESCO world heritage site of Bruges (Brugge in Dutch while Burges is used in both English and French.) The sender makes trips into Belgium often, and I can't help but wonder if the postage is cheaper there than in France.
