Last week Thursday, i got my first two cards from Postcrossing and it came all the way from Latvia (Riga) and Spain (Barcelona).
The post office staff called me up yesterday and I have 3 cards in there that needs to be picked-up. I thought yesterday noontime i could but time did not allow me. Same thing happened today. HOpefully tomorrow I can and will share it here in my blog next week.
For now, enjoy these two:
Note from Jordi:
Hola Arlene, The Monument to Colon is one of the most famous statues of Barcelona constructed in honoring the discoverer Christopher Colon. It is raised in the square of Porta de la Pau (Portal of Peace). The monument was constructed as culminating point of the works of improvement of the littoral of Barcelona, done on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of Barcelona in 1888. It turned immediately into one of the icons most typical of the city. I hope you like this card. All the best for the next upcoming year 2010 to you and your beloved ones! Best regards from Barcelona.
Note from Sievia:
Greetings from Latvia! It’s a small country at the Baltic Sea, and on this card you see the skyline of our capital Riga. It’s an old city, founded in 1201, and it has a beautiful old town with lots to see, so come and visit! Right now, everything is under quite a deep cover of snow, and I’m looking forward to springtime. Love, Sievia
