Some more Postcrossing comings and goings

Here is the front of Postcrossing postcard (mentioned Sunday) I received from 11-year-old Vera in Novosibirsk, Russia. Vera also drew an incredible picture of a chicken holding a flower, shown at right. That propels this firmly into my Postcrossing Arrivals Hall of Fame.

Vera's note, in careful printing, stated:
Hello Chris!
I'm from Russia. I'm 11 years old. I study at school. But it's the holidays now. This is the first postcard wich I send. I'm happy to send it to you. On it is drawn a fary tale "Three bears." I hope you like it! Happy Postcrossing!!!

Here are some of the other cool messages I've received on recent arrivals to my mailbox:

From Germany: "Dear Chris, my name is Sandra, I'm 50 years old & I live with my son (17) in small village close to the city of Munich in Bavaria. I love to be in the open nature by biking & walking. I like music, cinema, theater, knitting, books, yoga. I wish you a wonderful summer season. Many greetings. GOD BLESS YOU, LOVE, LIGHT & PEACE"

From Australia (postcard shown above): "Hi Chris ... I'm 48 years old and live in a small country town named Daylesford in Victoria, Australia. I have 7 children with the youngest 4 still at home. I work as a school crossing supervisor and also as a checkout chick. Fairy Park is located around 50 mins drive from my house. My youngest princess loves it."

From China: "Hello! I am a high school student from China. I like collecting all kinds of papers, too. I always send a postcard to home at whichever mailbox I meet. Have a nice day!"

Thanks from abroad

And here's another batch of emailed thank-you messages from fellow Postcrossing enthusiasts across the globe.

My daughters like it, thank you very much for your beautiful card, legible handwriting and for such a warm message! I love reading, I also have a lot of books (it seems to me, I'm so old-fashioned. Best wishes and good luck to you and your son!"

Meike from Germany wrote: "I think you write very important words in Postcrossing. We only have one world and this time we should use. All the best from the north of Germany. I live in a nice village called Aukrug."
