Favorite cheese: Tvarůžky (I just looked it up and there is a Tvarůžky Cheese Museum!!! I want to go!)

I got this awesome postcard / stamps from Radana in the Czech Republic! I’ve always thought the Czechs have some of the best design in the world.


Favorite cheese: Sharp Cheddar

I loooooove this card. I’ve been dying to get this box of cards (Paris vs. New York) so maybe this is a sign? 😉 I also LOVE the vintage Olympic stamp! Yay! Megan in New Jersey picked the the most perfect card and stamp for me!!!


I was at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia in 2000 so it was awesome to get this card in the mail! It brought back a lot of good memories. 🙂 July in Tyumen, Russia send it to me.

Sent Card #52 & 53

Isadora in São Paulo, Brazil likes history cards. I wrote a little about the history of Richmond and that in April 1865, General Lee found out that Richmond was going to be invaded so he evacuated the city. He also ordered his troops to burn all the buildings that contained government records, cotton, tobacco, liquor and food so the North couldn’t use any of it. About 60 blocks burned and shortly after the South surrendered.

UPDATE Nov. 13, 2012: Hurray! My card reached its destination in 7 days after traveling 7,492 km! Isadora said: “Thank you for the postcard, it is amazing! Happy postcrossing.”

Karin in Berlin, Germany loves reading so I sent her a card by the great Beatrix Potter! I told her I am currently reading “Divergent” which is similar to the “Hunger Games”, but I think it’s a little bit better.

UPDATE Nov. 13, 2012: Hurray! My card reached its destination in 6 days after traveling 6,860 km! Karin said: “Thank you for your beautiful card” and she thanked me for the book recommendation. 🙂
