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!!!
