Lots of Postcrossing here. I really love the two tasty ones!
The cartoon bowl has got to be one of my all-time favorites. It came from Sendai, Japan, in a journey of 10 days & 5,012 miles. The sender writes,
(In Sendai,) we have lots of nature, delicious foods especially rice, fruits, and vegetables…In Japan, there’re lots of bowl-style foods. Do you know how many styles way to eat rice cake? The answer is 200.
The bowl of food without a face comes from Chongqing, China, not a postcrossing draw–we’ll I’m not her draw, but she’s mine! I drew her, and have had a card allegedly traveling her way 99 days as of this writing. When I contacted her at the 60-day mark, and sent a new card (which also, I guess, has not arrived), she rewarded my efforts by sending this delicious card. She writes of the dish on her card:
This card is a delicious food called ‘cold noodles with chicken shreds.’ This food is a little spicy, or maybe not a little spicy for you guys.”
The American art (Subway, by Jacob Lawrence) came from Singapore, a trip of 8,469 miles over 23 days. The sender does mention food: that she is craving wonton noodles (at 11:40 p.m.), and that she has an eating disorder called ARFID. I had to look that up.
Finally, a few nice views from Kuršių Nerija National Park in Lithuania, on a card that took 22 days to travel the 5,674 miles to my mailbox. The 16-year-old high-school freshman says she trying to learn some Spanish:
I’m learning it from a phone app, so I don’t know how it’s gonna work.
Stamps & postmarks! So many great stamps here.
