Minsk, Belarus

My friend Luba always sends me wonderful postcards, and I’m a lousy friend and never remember to write down her address when I travel somewhere to return the favor. Sorry for that, I promise I’ll be better. :(

This time she was visiting Belarus and sent me this lovely postcard from Minsk, the capital city. IMAG7826

Lately, I’ve been into this kind of postcards, honestly. I love the view cards, especially with the beautiful photo on it, and I love funny cards as well, but simple things like this are moving higher and higher on my list of postcards I enjoy. Who’d ever say! Also, those “I <3 _____” postcards, haha! I don’t think I’ve ever noticed them before, and then in the last few months they seem to be everywhere!

But anyway, here’s the Minsk postcard – with the name “Minsk” written in different languages. Enjoy it & learn something new! :)

Savannah, Georgia

It’s been forever since I’ve exchanged any postcards with O’Neal, but yesterday – this was in my mailbox. Two awesome postcards from Savannah, Georgia! Such a wonderful surprise!

First postcard is showing Fort Pulaski. Here’s what the little caption on the back of the postcard says: “Construction of this mighty fort began in 1829 and was not completed until 1847. Scars left by the Civil War mark the ancient walls which exceed seven feet in thickness. The fort was declared a National Monument in 1924.” There’s more interesting facts about it on Wikipedia, link HERE!

The second postcard that arrived is showing Forsyth Park, also in Savannah, Georgia. “During azalea time, Savannah is transformed into a sea of color as thousands upon thousands of plants burst into full bloom. This scene shows the Forsyth Park Fountain which was modeled after the one in Place de la Concord, Paris, France.“, says the printed caption on the postcard. Read more HERE!
Looks like such a beautiful place!!
