Since Saturday I have received 4 new cards and wanted to share them with you. I hope that you like them as much as I do!
Sake sent this card from the Netherlands. He tells me that he lives in a small, touristy town in the east of his country. He says that the mill on the card is an old one named Delelie (Lily) and in his area. I really love this card!
This card was sent by Valeri in Russia. He lives near the Volga River, in his words,"the greatest river in Europe." This card shows a large dam and hydroelectric station on the Volga River. This is near his town.
I'm a big fan of cards with water in them. Thanks Valeri.

Dave in Idaho sent me this cool card of Lizard Butte. Why is it called Lizard Butte? Because the formation resembles a large lizard.
He tells me that Lizard Butte is 100 and some miles south east from where he lives. He also says that Top Gun is his favourite movie.
Reiko also used a lovely stamp and cancellation mark. The picture sadly doesn't do it justice, but it shows a Maiko in front of a pagoda.
Snake River, Idaho
Dave also used a couple of terrific stamps on his card, which I have shown below. I think the Monsters, Inc. one is very cute, and so is the one with the dog.
My next card only took two days to reach me. It was mailed on August 6th and arrived here August 8th. Obviously, it came from Japan!
Reiko lives in Kyoto and just like me, she was complaining about the weather! She said it was hot and muggy when she wrote. She mentioned that there are 17 World Heritage Sites in Kyoto. I didn't know!

Well, there you are again. Four interesting cards from around the world. I wonder if there'll be anything in my mailbox tomorrow? Fingers crossed there will be!
