Day Two Hundred Ninety

China CN-99528 received 08-15-2009

Sent by: Welkin
From: China
ID number: CN-99528
Notes: The only caption on the back of this card that is in English says "People's Republic of China", so I can't  verify with 100% certainty the sender's claim that this is a postcard of Mount Everest.  It does *look* like some photos of the north face of Mount Everest that I was able to find through a search, so Welkin is likely correct. I always thought Everest was entirely in Nepal, but apparently the international border between Nepal and China runs through its precise summit point.
