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. 🙂
