Three in: one from Germany (a Postcrossing Forum “USA to Any Country” trade) (in this situation, Germany being the “any country), and two from regular Postcrossing sends, BOTH from Russia!
I didn’t think that was supposed to happen–two traveling from the same country at the same time–but just days ago, I received two concurrent travelers from another company, Germany! As I showed in my post at that time, both Russia & Germany are top participants in Postcrossing, but I wish there were either an algorythm or a membership drive to help better distribute the countries from which I receive–and to which I send–cards!
Did I mention that I looove that Donald card? It’s the Postcrossing forum trade, from a sender in Munich, Germany.
From fowl to foul, there’s the “Heavy Christmas” card from Moscow, Russia. The sender tells me:
“From time to time I draw heavy metal cards for my friends. This year I have a surplus so I decided to participate in postcrossing. This is my very first letter in this project.”
What a gift to the world.
Finally, from St. Petersburg, Russia, the other Postcrossing card, this one with a friendly hedgehog. The sender has some recommended reading for me:
“Surely read books Peter Mayle. It has many books ‘foodie travelogue.’ For example: ‘A Year in Provence,’ ‘French Lessons: Adventures with Knife, Fork, and Corkscrew,’ ‘A Good Year.” Hope you like this books.”
