Two more today!

Today Jack and I received two postcards!

Our first postcard was a private swap from Scotland!
This is a postcard showing many scenes from Aberdeen.  Aberdeen is Scotland's third most populous city and one of Scotland's 32 local government council areas. It has an official population estimate of 210,400.
Pictured are 'His Majesty's Theatre', 'St. Machar's Cathedral', 'Union Street', 'The Mercat Cross and Citadel', and  'Duthie Park'.

Our second one comes from the Czech Republic!
It's a scene from Prague....Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic.  Situated on the Vltava River in central Bohemia, Prague has been the political, cultural and economic center of the Czech state for more than 1100 years. For many decades during the Gothic and Renaissance eras, Prague was the permanent seat of two Holy Roman Emperors and thus was also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire.

Four more cards over the Holiday week!

This week we received four postcards!  

My first one is from South Africa...It is definitely one of my favorites!

I love this postcard...I had seen it on the postcrossing website and contacted the sender to see if they would be able to send one to me....I love the sweet expressions on these childrens faces.  Thanks so much Kevin for sending this one out to me!

The next one is from Turkey!

Ankara is the capital of Turkey, and is the second largest city after Istanbul. 
There is a quote on the back:  "Peace at home, peace in the world" (Ataturk)

Our third postcard comes from Eritrea!
Eritrea ,officially the State of Eritrea, is a country in the Horn of Africa.  The woman on the front is from the ethnic group Saho.  Most of the women dress like this, it is a traditional dress which has been kept for years.

Our last postcard is from the Netherlands!
It shows many colorful scenes from son loved the cows!!  I'm having a hard time choosing which picture I like the most....I love the tulips, the traditional shoes, and the heart in the middle!!
