Day One Hundred Twenty-Nine

Sent by: hannah2
From: Greifswald, Germany
ID number: DE-461013
Notes: I'm sure you can probably see that these are all churches.  All four are located in the city of Greifswald, which is in north east Germany on the coast of the Baltic Sea.  Hannah, the sender, told me that the Marienkirche, or St. Mary's Church, was built in 1260, and the other three are "some years younger" (her exact words).  St. Mary's still has cannonballs in its walls from a 17th century war when Greifswald was still part of Sweden.

Hey, guess what?  This is my last card from Germany out of this box.  Whew!!
