Postcrossing - Incoming

To July 24, 2012
Another bunch of lovely cards have arrived in my mailbox.  Sadly, many of the ones I sent have stuck in transit, but that's another post.  Someday I may even write it.
Today I have 5 cards from Europe.  They are all interesting and quite unusual.  See what you think!

First up is this interesting card from Finland.  It melds two of my interests, books and writing, so I like it a lot. The sender is a 25 year old woman who loves Japan and wishes she can travel here someday.  She used an interesting round stamp as well.

This My Fair Lady card came to me from Ireland and was sent by Melissa.  She lives in Dublin and moved there from PEI.  I thought it was very cool to receive a card from another ex-pat.

This card came from Gerrit in the Netherlands.  I don't have any other information about it.  Obviously it is a historic view of a city and since it mentions Rotterdam, I'm assuming that the view is of Rotterdam!

Ola from Krakow in Poland sent this card to me.  She bought a series of cards and once in a while someone is lucky enough to receive one of them.  She guessed correctly for me as this person was not only a writer of science fiction short stories and novels, but quite a few movies that I enjoy were based on his works.  
Philip K. Dick
Some of the movies his works inspired include Total Recall, Minority Report and Blade Runner. Definitely a good card for my author or my movie series!

Els from The Netherlands sent me this card of the detail from "The Creation of Adam".  I have almost the same one on my computer as wallpaper. (Mine has the Flying Spaghetti Monster on it though.)  

Els suggests that I tell my students about the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.
The Sistine Chapel: "The Creation of Adam" by Michelangelo (det.)
She also reminded me of the film of The Da Vinci Code which she liked. 

There you have it.  Five great cards.  Any thoughts or comments?  Until next time, I'll be waiting for the postman and his noisy motorcycle to bring me some mail!

Really great cards! I actually put my account on hold for a bit because it was so rainy that I just could not get out to mail the cards much less walk to buy stamps! I'm going to get stamps Monday and start up again.

Oh, that's right, you are right in the middle of all that bad weather. I'm sorry, I hope it clears up for you soon.

Glad to hear that you'll be picking it up again. :-)

Thanks also for your advice about addresses on Postcrossing....I'm okay as there aren't 9's in my street address, but my student has 9's so I warned her about it.

Thanks for commenting :-)

I like My Fair Lady so that card is really special. :-)

Thank you! For me it was cool because NHK had just run it again a few weeks before getting the card.

Thanks for visiting :-)
