Stella from Jakarta, Indonesia contacted me about swapping, and I received this lovely postcard of Indonesian food that I really like! She said the food was white rice, chicken skewer (satay), oxtail soup, gado-gado (salad with peanut dressing & rice crackers), pickled veggies and 3 types of sambal (chili paste). It all looks amazing!!! 🙂 I also love the stamps she put on – plus the silvery tape (with the stars) that she added – it went right down the middle of the postcard which I thought was pretty cool – and unique! Stella wanted a Wisconsin mapcard that I had. 🙂

Shinta is a teacher from Surabaya, Indonesia and sent me this card of Borobudur Temple which is the largest Buddhist monument in the world (and 1,200+ years old). It’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site! It’s been raining here a lot lately, so unfortunately her postcard arrived somewhat water damaged, but it still looks beautiful! 🙂 Love the stamps!
I sent this card (one of my favorites!) to Lin in New Taipei City, Taiwan. Peter Rabbit was one of my favorite books as a kid!
HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 51 days after traveling 12,804 km! Lin said, “HELLO THANK YOU FOR YOUR CUTE CARD. I LIKE IT SO MUCH. HAVE A NICE DAY. LIN”
Sitia from Indonesia sent me these great cards, and really cool handmade envelope! 🙂 The stamps are great too!
Xin from Taiwan sent me this great train card! 🙂 I’d love to go to Taiwan and visit the whole country by rail! 🙂

I had sent Nadezhda from Russia an official Postcrossing card with some stamps in an envelope in January, and recently she sent me this thank you letter! 🙂 I love all the stamps, especially the giant one of Gogol on the envelope! The train card is great too. 🙂
Gillian from Vermont, South Africa sent me this beautiful card today! 🙂 I love flags, and also stamps, so this was a great find in my mailbox today! 😀 The Nelson Mandela stamp is most amazing to me. I have around 50 South African stamps because SA stamps are hard to find here, so these new stamps are amazing to me! 🙂
Regine from Frankfurt, Germany sent me this beautiful card by Hundertwasser! I wish my scan could show how all the dark green circles on the trees are shiny. It’s such a neat card. The back is black, so Regine wrote with a silver pen (love!). She told me that the 55 cent stamp is actually a photo she took in NYC, and she only had 3 made – and she shared one with me! 🙂 That’s so special and cool. I love it.
Kateryna from Simferopol, Ukraine sent me this awesome circus card!!! 🙂 I love anything circus related. She also sent this fabulous rooster stamp in the envelope. I have very few Ukrainian stamps, so I’m really happy to add this one to my collection! I’m pretty sure it’s mint (unused) and if so, it’s the only mint one I have in my collection now.
