Wonderful card from the Suzhou Street - Summer Palace in Beijing.
The card was sent by nixil. Nixil wrote: "Suzhou is famous for its Private Gardens and always regard as the Oriental Venice. It's so beautiful. I love my hometown :)"
I'm sure that i already got cards from the Summer Palace in Beijing, but you know me and my mess :) I think it's time to reorder my postcard collection this winter!
The Summer Palace in Beijing – first built in 1750, largely destroyed in the war of 1860 and restored on its original foundations in 1886 – is a masterpiece of Chinese landscape garden design. The natural landscape of hills and open water is combined with artificial features such as pavilions, halls, palaces, temples and bridges to form a harmonious ensemble of outstanding aesthetic value.

I'm really not sure under which country i should deposit this card? mmm...
the card was sent by tens, who is originally from Belarus. The card was written in Belarus on a meeting (the 3rd one in minsk), the stamp is also a belarusian one - BUT the card shows St. Petersburg which is in Russia.
Sad! I don't like that much cards which aren't from the country the stamp is from... BUT anyway! I like the card very much! It's full of nice words and quotes! not just the signatures from the postcrossers!
Thank you very much to Tens who sent me the card. And to Csigat_Snail, Sergei, KAteR, OksaFoksa and exmellie for your kind words!
|The Kriukov Canal. The St. Nicholas Naval Cathedral of the Epiphany|
The architecture of Naval St Nicolas Cathedral of the Epiphany combines baroque style with elements of traditional Russian architecture. The Cathedral, designed by architect S. Tchevakinsky in 1753-62 and sanctified in 1760, is one of the most beautiful churches in St Petersburg.
The Cathedral was named after St Nicolas Chudotvotetz (Wonder Worker). It became a kind of memorial in honor of the lost seamen.
Naval St Nicolas Cathedral is one of few cathedrals that were not closed in the Soviet period.

received this wonderful card during the last few days! Yes my Recived but not registered box is full! OMG! Had a lot to do this evening, while my bf is on the vine trade fair. You need to know: He's originally from the southwetsern part from Switzerland (where all the big mountains are) calling Kanton Wallis. It's not a myth! i can tell you - they drink with a good sip! So it's totally normaly that he is ther on this trade fair, where you can degustate vine for free. I myself don't drink any alcohol, so whats better than stay at home with my beloved cards! :)
But back to the main theme!
The card was sent by Goosik who's living in Poland, not where the card is from but she brought it from her vacations.
It shows the famous Morze Battyckie and when i can remember right i once get quite a similar card from this region.

The card was sent by tinktink who lives in Tokyo - but sent a card from a pagoda in kyoto.
To be honest i'm really not sure if i visited this one. Kyoto is full of pagodas and shrines and temples... really too much for 3 days :) Weeeee that was a great time! Just browsed through our photos we take... one is this, which i'd like to show you!
|Me (first row with the purple scarf), my family in law and the best friends from my brother in law. |

|Yasaka Pagoda, Kyoto|
The pagoda rests on a bank in Eastern Kyoto. At 46 meters high, the temple stands out as a landmark of the city. Located between the Yasaka Shrine and the Kiyomizu Temple, the Pagoda is surrounded by residental buildings. The Pagoda also has a small traditional well attended garden at its base.

Do you see the golden one?
The Universal Postal Union is an international organization that coordinates postal policies among member nations, and hence the worldwide postal system. Each member country agrees to the same set of terms for conducting international postal duties. The Universal Postal Union's headquarters are located in Bern, Switzerland.
Also the UPU Monument which was built on the 4th of october 1909 - the day of my birthday - sure i'm not as old as this monument :) In the UPU Monument (Weltpostdenkmal) in Bern, bronze and granite, by René de Saint-Marceaux, the five continents join to transmit messages around the globe
many countries has stamp issues with the monuiment as motiv.
Last year i.e. Switzerland had a joint issue with France.
