Postcrossing | Chinese Architecture

This straight inclined roofs are commonly seen in “old dwellings” in China. I say old because in urban places, old dwellings were converted into places of tall buildings to accommodate the population. But still when you see one of these, you can still feel the wamth of traditional dwellings.

The greetings read:

Hi! Nice to meet you! I’m from Zhejiang, China. And I believe in the word of the fate. So I am very glad that I can write you. 🙂 (with smiley) Happy Postcossing! — Dayue / October 31, 2017

So this card has been mailed quite a long time already and I received it just few days ago. Quite a long time, but I am glad it has arrived.

The stamp used is a building with the Great Wall at the background. I still I cannot decide if this is a definitive stamp or a commemorative one.

Postcrossing | Sushi House of Cat

This is one of the first cards I received from China this year 2018.  But in reality, this card will still be included in the 2017 card received census since this was sent in 2017.

It’s a Japanese inspired designed cat. I love cats so I love this card.

The stamps used are also cute. I like the warmness exude by its color.
