This card comes from Kun Hu. 🙂

The Tsing Ma Bridge is a bridge in Hong Kong. It is the world’s ninth-longest span suspension bridge, and was the second longest at time of completion. The bridge was named after two of the islands at its ends, namely Tsing Yi and Ma Wan. It has two decks and carries both road and rail traffic, which also makes it the largest suspension bridge of this type. The bridge has a main span of 1,377 metres and a height of 206 metres. The span is the largest of all bridges in the world carrying rail traffic. The 41-metre wide bridge deck carries six lanes of automobile traffic, with three lanes in each direction. The lower level contains two rail tracks and two sheltered carriageways, used for maintenance access and traffic lanes when particularly severe typhoons strike Hong Kong and the bridge deck is closed to traffic.

I received this card via postcrossing. It was sent to me by Chun who lives in Hong Kong. In my profile I’ve written that I’d be happy to receive “something pink and/or girly”, that’s why Chun chose this card for me. On the back he has written “Is it pink enough?”. Yes, yes it is! 😀 The girly girl in me leaped for joy when I received this pink beauty 😀

While I was wondering what exactly to write here, I came across a webpage that simply stated “Hong Kong is known to be the city where dreams come true.” And that sounded so beautiful and I don’t really have anything else to add. 🙂

This card came from Candy from Hong Kong.
