New country in my collection, thanks to the wonderful Elena. ๐Ÿ™‚



The other face of South Africa


This card comes from my dear friend Natalie and shows the other face of South Africa. Natalie says those shacks are found in poorer parts of the townships. She also says they’re usually made from corrugated tin and most of them don’t have water or electricity. This card might not be as pretty as the most typical alluring touristic postcards and I think that’s the reason why I love it – because it shows something real and that’s what makes it special! ๐Ÿ™‚


And here’s the AWESOME stamp that Natalie used. ๐Ÿ™‚


Postcrossing meetings in Krasnoyarsk


Those two lovely meeting cards come from my dearest pen pal Tina. This pinkish beauty arrived just yesterday, and the meeting was held in February. I can honestly say this became one of my favorite cards, it’s so cute! ๐Ÿ™‚




And this card is from a Postcrossing meeting that was held in September. But as you all know, I’m always behind with uploading my received postcards here. ๐Ÿ˜€

This card pictures the Stolby reserve.ย Thanks to the Stolby Nature Reserve, Krasnoyarsk became known throughout the world. This unique piece of nature can truly be called the pearl of Siberia.ย Stolby Nature Reserve is stretched along the right bank of the Yenisei River, in the north-western slope of the Eastern Sayan. Here, in the taiga, syenite rocks of bizarre form are towering in the territory of 47 thousand hectares.
