I received my first postcard today from Finland! The sender is a woman named Sari. I used to think that I would be disappointed if I didn't receive a postcard exactly like the ones I had in mind, but I guess I was wrong. Just the feeling of getting mail from someone somewhere around the world is enough to make me smile. - March 7, 2012.
Received my second postcard from Annelies. This one's from a small town in Belgium called Tienen. Covered in green clovers, the card was sent one day before the Carnival in her country. It's not exactly the postcard that I hoped to receive after the first one, but I'll take it. After all, there are many more to come. - March, 2012

My third postcard came into the mail today! I was sleeping, and suddenly my mom came in and slipped a card into my hand. I've been waiting to receive something like this, so that's why when I finally woke up, I was so excited to see all the flowers on it which only meant one thing - it's from Holland! The place I've dreamed of visiting to witness for myself the magnificent fields of tulips. :) The sender is a woman named Anke who left a very nice message on the card. - March 15, 2012
My fourth postcard came in today. Another favourite! I was surprised that I got a card two days in a row; not because I didn't think it could happen as Peiyi always gets those, but I've just never experienced it myself. Anyways, this one's from Japan and it's exactly the type I've checked off on my "favourites" wall. And on top of that, it was sent by a man, named Daisuke. I used to think to myself, "what's the big deal of visiting Japan?" when everyone put that at the top of their list of where they want to visit. But now I envy the beauty of the country; the cherry blossom festival, the peaceful sceneries, and rock gardens. And hopefully someday, I'll be able to see them in person. - March 16, 2012.
