Go West

UK GB-188405 received 12-06-2010

Sent by: claire2107
From: Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom
ID number: GB-188405
Notes: To fans of Doctor Who and Torchwood, such as myself, this is a familiar sight.  In the background is the Wales Millennium Centre, an arts center located in Cardiff Bay and opened in 2004.  The inscription on the front is in both Welsh (Creu Gwir Fel Gwydr O Ffwrnais Awen) and English (In These Stones Horizons Sing).  The silver tower in the front is officially known as the Water Tower, but the caption on the back of the postcard identifies it as the Torchwood Tower.  Nice!

USA US-800797 received 08-23-2010

Notes: Leaving behind western UK, we now head to the western USA.  The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library is located in Simi Valley, California, about 40 miles (64 km) northwest of Los Angeles.  The library opened in 1991, two years after the end of Reagan's presidency.  Following his death in 2004, President Reagan was interred on the library's grounds.  The white building next to the library houses the Air Force One used by Reagan, a Boeing 707.
