A pair of cheery Postcrossing arrivals

From my mailbox to your device screen...

This first postcard arrived, via Postcrossing, from a woman in Germany. She writes:
Remscheid, July 23rd, 2018
30° C, [sunny symbol]
Hello Chris,
My name's Alexandra ... and I'm a 46-year-old German secretary living in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. This postcard shows St. Bartholomew's Church in Berchtesgaden, Bavaria, at the western shore of the Königssee lake, on Hirschau peninsula. Best wishes from Germany.
So I'll be adding that spot to the travel bucket list...

And this smile-bringing, cat-and-chicken card was from Irina, who lives near the Black Sea, is trying to learn English and loves cats. Her short note states:
+30° C
+27° C [water symbol]
Hello Chris!
My name is Irina. FIFA World Cup took place in my city — Sochi. And visited 2 games in our stadium "Fisht". It was exciting! Good luck!
The back of Irina's card also includes a drawing of an American flag, a purple dinosaur stamp, a sticker of a smiley face with sunglasses, and a 2012 Russian postage stamp that commemorates the 1965 animated film Vovka in a Far Far Away Kingdom, which was directed by Boris Stepantsev.
