I've been having a great time with Postcrossing.com and as usual have received some great cards. If you like sending and receiving mail, then you might be interested in joining up.
Since the last Postcrossing Update, I have received 6 new cards, plus a bonus I'll tell you about. These are great cards, read on and enjoy!
This card came from the Netherlands and shows Olives on a board. It is a Nouvelles Images card and they are quite sought after. I like it a lot because at my convention in March I took an olive oil tasting workshop and this reminded me of it. I like olives!

The sender lives in a small village in the center of the Netherlands. She's married and has two children.
This card came from Finland and shows Heath Church. The sender writes that he met up with a friend of his who was in Canada on a holiday and he fell in love with Canada. He says that I am living very far from my home country and he wouldn't be able to do that!

|Cathedral of the Resurrection ("Our Saviour-on-the-Spilt-Blood") 1883-1907|
He writes that he's 17 years old and loves reading, travelling, and listening to music. He wants to learn new languages such as Spanish or Korean.
At the moment he is writing very important exams, so my postcard was the last that he would be able to send until July most likely. He also apologised for writing his card while he was on the school bus!
It's a beautiful card, and quite a bit bigger than the usual cards I receive. I really like this one.
This is a very special and rare card. It comes from Nepal. There are only 17 postcrossers in Nepal and there have only been 176 cards sent from the country. I got one of them! Yay!
Just as an aside, I found out about Postcrossing from the blog posted above, so I have an extra reason to be thankful to the sender!
|A majestic view of Annapurna Range from the village of Dhampus|
The sender writes that his country is full of natural beauty, and this picture shows one of the beautiful places. This place is called Dhampus, and we can have a very close view of the mountains from there.
Thank you for sending a card. I appreciate it very much!
I received this card today from the Republic of Belarus. Alena writes that this cards shows the most important book of all time in her opinion, the Bible. She writes that she also finds it interesting and valuable for non-religious people too.
She wrote that her favourite foreign movies are the two adaptations of Alice In Wonderland, the Tim Burton one, and one by Nick Willing. She wrote the name of her favourite Russian movie, but I can't read it!
And now, the bonus. It's a bit gruesome, so perhaps you don't want to see it, but this card was inspired by the novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I entered a competition on a blog and was the lucky recipient of this card. It's a little scary, but I like this card!

That's it for today. A lot of very interesting cards. I hope you enjoy them all!
