Wet & Dry (but not in that order): Received from Russia & the United States

It’s another chunk of cardboard!

I love these swap-bot trades, where any cardboard can be turned into a postcard.  This big chunk from Saint Paul, Minnesota–I don’t know what it’s fashioned from, exactly–it’s apparently the box for a towel made of non-woven fabric.

The sender writes:

“What are you reading lately?  I am working my way thru John D. McDonald’s Travis McGee series, and also John Sandford.  Yesterday I started Guns, Germs and Steel.  It’s long, and I’m hoping it’s not too dry.”

The ocean postcard comes from a Postcrosser in Moscow, Russia, who writes:

“Greetings from Russia with the wishes of good luck, joy, happiness.  I like to travel the world, taking pictures of sights.  I like painting, especially the marine pictures.  The postcard–Black Sea–Russian painter Ivan Aivazovsky, picture.  Your photos are super!!!  You’re professional!!!
