3) CZ-1694787 An art card showing MIkolas Ales’ work entitled “Uhlan” (1878). The postcard went through a difficult journey. It arrived in a sealed plastic bag, with a note from Posten saying it was “harmed” during transport. When I removed it from the bag, it was very wet. Well, it dried down after a while.. but does not look very okay. 😉 I still like it though — such battle scars! Martinea shared what she had for breakfast – mashed banana with eggs! Sounds like maruya, a snack in the Philippines. 😉 Nice Postcrossing stamp used! ❤

2) CZ-1677563 This postcard brings back memories. Carl & I were in Prague zoo in summer of 2018. We were impressed by how big it was – they even have chair lifts! We got so tired (and wasn’t finished exploring the zoo), so we had to ride those litte trains. Marta, the sender, wrote about the zoo and described it as: “one of the most beautiful and biggest in our country”. On the card is the carnivorous brown fur seal. Nice dandelion stamp used! ❤

  1. CZ-1655801 Havlíčkův Brod is a town located in the middle of Czech Republic, in the historical land of Bohemia. It has a long history, from being a silver mine town to an industrialized area with textile as a major industry, and in the 1980s, it was declared a national treasure. Marie, who lives in the Highlands where the town is situated, used a nice stamp featuring the pampeliska or dandelion. ❤
