Three in a day–that’s a lot for me!
First comes the wonderful little chef, from Ibaraki, Japan, courtesy of a Postcrossing Forum food package postcard tag. The sender tells me she has made the card from a “choco anpan” box:
“This is a Japanese small bread-shaped snack. It’s delicious and it’s so cute. :P”
Take a look down below for the wonderful food stickers (and the super-cool stamps) on the reverse side of her card.
More deliciousness on the next card, which came to me from a Postcrosser in Taipei, Taiwan. I have tried all of the foods listed, with the exception of the fried sub-sandwich. As for the steamed buns, AKA xiaolongbao / XLB / 小籠包, well, I’ve had those twice in the last 3 weeks or so!
Finally, from a Postcrosser in Petrozavodsk, Russia, comes the card depicting a sidewalk. Now, I was looking at that card, wondering if that scene is the best this locale has to offer–and then I recalled the postcards I see that depict my own city. Let’s just say that there is no accounting for postcard designers. I will let the postcard’s sender have the final word on her locale:
“This is a very beautiful, quiet and cozy town. It is the capital of the Republic of Karelia (on the north of Russia).”
A wonderful assemblage of stamps, stickers, & such:
