San Francisco, USA

Yet another amazing (and huge!) postcard came my way, again from the dear O’Neal. There is no way I could fit it into my scanner, so taking a picture of it was the only way to display it here.

The one on top is showing The Golden Gate bridge – quite a lovely view, I must say. The bottom one is San Francisco skyline by night. The bottom one is that postcard I received some time ago. Still didn’t manage to fully straighten it. :)

By the way, another Donald Duck that went without a postmark…. Really makes me wonder. :)

This first postcard comes from my pal Heather, who visited her family in Michigan over the holidays. This is a cool recipe card, I’ve seen postcards like this before but I think this is the first one I’ve received. No, wait, the second one – I have one with a cookies recipe from the UK from before. :D And the recipe here seems quite interesting. I wonder if you could use chicken, since it doesn’t really specify what kind of meat it has to be. ;)

This second card comes from my new pal Ugne from Lithuania. Such a cool picture, it’s showing a place called Neringa. It’s actually a municipality in Lithuania,  in the coastal area. Ugne mentioned I should Google “Nida”, which turned out to be a resort town on the Lithuanian coast. Such cool photos, those sandy beaches are amazing! :D

I should also mention that I got the biggest postcard I’ve ever seen from O’Neal. The postcard is showing San Francisco skyline at night. Really a beautiful postcard, but unfortunately it doesn’t fit in my scanner so I can’t post a picture here. “Take a photo!”, you say!? I tried, but I’m not happy with how it turns out. Yeah yeah, that’s a photographer in me talking, never happy. :D

San Francisco, USA

This is a cute postcard from San Francisco that I got in a trade through Postcrossing forum. The San Francisco cable car system is the world’s last permanently operational manually operated cable car system, in the US sense of a tramway whose cars are pulled along by cables embedded in the street. It is an icon of San Francisco, California. Cable cars operate on two routes from downtown near Union Square to Fisherman’s Wharf, and a third route along California Street.

They are among the most significant tourist sites in the city, along with Alcatraz Islandand Fisherman’s Wharf. It is the only transportation system listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
