Sent to Finland & Russia

Three went out today via Postcrossing: 2 to Russia, one to Finland.  I sent the coolest cards ever, as you can see:

John cards c

There are three VERY lucky people in Europe…

The top card–shot at Liliʻuokalani Park and Gardens in Hilo, Hawaii, will eventually land in Oulu, Finland.  I just looked up Oulu.  It looks like someone covered it in royal icing.

The tiger goes to Irkutsk, Russia, which doesn’t look so warm, either. The recipient’s postcard interests include toys and “funny, funny pictures,” so we will see how she likes this.

Lastly comes the interesting adventure in babysitting, which also goes to Russia, to a much-warmer–but still quite brr-y–Nizhny Novgorod.

Nizhny Novgorod, colloquially shortened to Nizhny, is, with a population of 1,250,615, the fifth largest city in Russia and the administrative center of Nizhny Novgorod Oblast. –Wikipedia

The card’s recipient, I think, really prefers cards that depict coffee, but she did also say, “I’d be happy receive a postcard with cartoon or fairytale characters that are popular in your country.” Which both of the characters are.  Well, were.  At some point.
