Welcome to my postcards blog!

Direct swaps are welcome! I like postcards of lighthouses, waterfalls, historic architecture, science and scientists, schools and universities, or any other subject featuring your area. I hope you put date, location, weather and temperature on the card and affix multiple different stamps on it. Let me know what your preferences are, and I'll try my best to contribute to your collection.

Giving and Receiving

I started writing this blog post several months ago and became very discouraged when I knew my parents in China couldn't access blogspot. Well, everything has two sides -- maybe I feel more free to write down something I keep from family. Here I present my first post in 2011 and the new year resolution.

This is an advertisement card I got from S., who also sent me the Amsterdam Central Station card. The photo was part of the fashion campaign of a German department store, Peek & Cloppenburg. Besides the beauty of Amsterdam, a city on water, shown on the card, my attention was draw by the pretty and elegant Chinese model, Bonnie Chen.
