Day Forty-Nine


Sent by: tereza1
From: Hlinsko, Czech Republic
ID number: CZ167987
Notes: These buildings are part of an open-air museum in Hlinkso.  It sounds like an interesting place to visit, as I enjoy museums that include reenactments and demonstrations of life in past centuries.  I think perhaps I'd prefer to visit when it is a bit warmer than in this scene though.

Day Forty-Eight


Sent by: danbo120
From: China
ID number: CN-531287
Notes: Let's see, what can I tell you about this card?  Well, it appears to be from a zoo.  There are some elephants, giraffes, zebras, chimpanzees, flamingos and several other animals.  And that's about all I know, because I can't read Chinese, and no where on the back of the card does it say where exactly this card is from.

Notes: Here are scenes from the Istria region, which is shared by Croatia, Italy and Slovenia.  It is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea, and according to both the card and the sender, it is a magical place.

Day Forty-Five


Sent by: Atmajian
From: Zagreb, Croatia
ID number: HR-12013
Notes: I mention in my Postcrossing profile that I enjoy reading the messages on the back of the cards as much as I like photos on the front.  Atmajian really took that to heart and wrote nearly 150 words on this card!  (Yes, he wrote quite small.)  He told me that the cathedral in the background of this photo dates back to the 11th century, and stands as the tallest high-rise in Croatia.  It was severely damaged by an earthquake in 1880, but rebuilt.  Apparently there is a pizza place across from the cathedral that is pretty good. :)
