I received this card from Echo, absolutely one of the most beautiful mountain views I've seen. 

Nanyan Temple in Wudang Mount is listed as the national cultural relic as a famous Taoism palace. Nanyan is known as the most spectacular spot of the 36 scenic places in Mt. Wudangshan. It was as early as the Tang and Song Dynasty (618-1279) that Taoist priests practiced Taoism here and built Taoist temples for worshiping. Historical records show there were more than 600 buildings in Nanyan but most of them were destroyed in the late years of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

Violetta sent this funny postcard of  Vincent. It is painted by ukraine based Oleg Shupliak and is called "Double Dutch".  This painting shows two portraits of post-impressionist Vincent Van Gogh, one of which is used to create the nose of the main image. Two paintings form one single potrait. Quite amazing!

In Arizona it was warm and sunny when Ken wrote this card. I believe it still is :)
The setting of sun seems to pause to be cradled in the massive arms of saguaro cactus at Saguaro National Monument west of Tucson. These mighty plants often grow to hights of over 15 meters (50 feets) and live over 200 years on the harsh desert.

And this card I sent from Teneriffa for myself :)

Liisa Ihmemaassa - Alice in Wonderland



"Pitää tietää minne on menossa, jos haluaa päästä minnekään."
Palasin matkalta ja postissa odotti nippu hauskoja ja kauniita kortteja, tässä niistä kaksi.

From my favorite list  - Alice in Wonderland by russian artist Elena Bazanova 

Private swap from F22 Russia

Alenxander is a lawyer and enjoys scenes of court.

 Herttakunigatar haastaa Liisan krokettiin. Ihmemaassa palloina toimivat siilit, pelikortit portteina ja flamingot mailoina.  Kun peli lähtee käyntiin, virnuileva kissa kamppaa kuningattaren ja kuningatar luulee Liisan kampanneen hänet. Kuninkaan ehdotuksesta järjestetään oikeudenkäynti ja erilaisten käänteiden jälkeen tuomio julistetaan: ”Pää poikki!”  Liisa parka....
"Off with her head!"
