Sent to China, England, Germany, India, Japan, Malaysia, Spain, & Taiwan (Part 2)

Last time, I ended up just showing off the backsides of these eleven postcards I’ve sent out recently.  Time to flip them all over!  Most of these went out in Postcrossing Forum tag trades–if anything else is the case here, I’ll make note of it.

These three presidential Peanuts characters went out into the world along with my recommendation that each of them would have been a reasonable choice for my nation’s top office.  The worst I could say was that Pig-Pen may be dirty–but he’s certainly not the kind of dirty we are becoming used to!  That candidate went out to Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, and Charlie Brown (“He is kind & fair to everyone,” I wrote) went to Tokyo, Japan. The third candidate, Franklin (“Oh, how I wish Franklin had run! He’s such a good guy, who studies hard & is always fair”) went to my Peanuts-crazy postpal in Peacehaven, East Sussex, England.

Peanuts 2020.  Because we’ve proven we’re not against cartoon characters holding office.

Okay, now that we’ve seen the would-have-been candidates, let’s rush through the rest of the cards, four at a time.  Which are your favorites, this time?

Deadly Exclamation Point Leaks: Sent to China, Finland, India, & Taiwan

All but one of today’s cards go out in Postcrossing Forum tag trades.  Five lucky people we’ll be touching upon today:

The battling elephant seals go to an animal lover in Udupi, Karnataka, India who says she loves “anything that is unique!!!!” Whoa!  Well, this card is unique, because as far as I know, it is sold only in a single location, a restaurant in San Simeon, California–this being because the shot was taken by the restaurant’s owner.  After having sorta recently eaten and shopped for postcards at that establishment, I can say I will definitely return for more postcards.

Kitty in pearls head to Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, to a university student majoring in accounting who said she likes “anything related to cats!!!!!!!”  Whoa!

Snoopy would have been a good choice for President.  He’s headed for some international diplomacy in New Taipei City, Taiwan, where the idea of Postcrossing excites her, because she’s “never had a conversation with any foreigner before, I feel really excited and I look forward to it.”

SpongeBob!  That’s the one Postcard United send this time, and it is somewhere on its way to a junior high student in Fuzhou, Fujian, China who says she likes SpongeBob.  She says she is “very happy to fall in love with a postcard, it makes me feel a lot of warmth.”

Finally–and back to Postcrossing Forum–there’s Doctor Lucy.  The forum’s Snoopy/Peanuts tag goes for months at a time without a hit, likely due in large part to the dearth of Peanuts postcards available in the U.S., as I often moan about in this space.  Why can’t I just walk into my local Hallmark stores & pick up stacks of Peanuts postcards?  Because they don’t exist!  Okay, I’ve got to stop this.  Lucy goes off to Riihikoski, Finland, to the person who a couple of months ago tagged me in the same thread, & sent me the Sally Brown card I’ve displayed here previously.

Okay, time for a look at the stamps, stamps, stickers, & washi tape…
