I dropped Philippine postcards at the post office the other day. They are off to the following:
I got a call from the post office last Friday that i got 5 postcards waiting there. Hopefully I can pick them up tomorrow. I totally forgot about it this morning when i had so much time — but it was just too hot to really go out in the sun plus am wearing my Monday uniform. When i asked someone to mail the cards for me I also forgot to tell her to pick the cards. Haiii am getting so much forgetful these days. (sign of old age?)
1 postcard is Netherlands, the other 1 is from Israel and the last one from Stromberg.
This is the one from Israel:
Note at the back:
Shalom Arlene! I am sending you this card because it is full of the Israeli nature and even contains the Israel “ship of the desert” – a camel and its traditional Beduin gear. Wish you all the best! Vera
This is from Stromberg:
Note with it:
Hello Arlene! Here you have a view over wonderful Stromberg, a small villae, 3000 inhabitants. Iit’s always funny: we live on the top of the mountain. Looking down on the people living downtown. hahaha It’s so great to live in such a small town. I don’t like big cities. We’re got wonderful nature around, next city is about 6 km always. I love living in Stromberg. Greetings from Germany! — Alexandra
Note with it:
Hello Arlene, this is an old sanatorium build by Duiker. He was rather famous Dutch Architect. The town where i live has still lots of buildings restored by him so that they are still there. All the best! Anan
My card to China has reached Beijing in 19 days. And Sophie left this comment in the notice mail: “Thanks for your postcard. The view is really beautiful! And I have a plan of travelling to Philippines next year. I will not miss this :-)”
I can’t wait to get my next set of postcards. Next week am scheduled to send another set of postcards.
I received this card last Thursday. Another shared postcard from Sheng. The last time i got cards from them were from Latvia and not long after she mailed me those cards, they have moved back to Australia.
Right now i can’t wait for another card from her (as she promised) from the beautiful country, Australia.
