Postcards from Austria and Germany


This is from Tanja in Austria.  She has the most beautiful handwriting I’ve seen on a postcard and reports that her favorite book is The Hearing Trumpet by Lenora Carrington.

Here is a beautiful postcard from Germany, sent on the day after my birthday, which Hans was kind to note.  Hans worked on a ship and has visited many parts of the US.

I was curious to see how many postcards I have received from Germany because it seems like a lot, so I checked my stats.  Yep.  A lot of postcards from Germany. Double the next two highest numbers.
