This week I received a very nice card from Pauliina in Finland:

official postcrossing card FI-1206449

The image is the work of a local artist and all the people in the picture are actual people who live in Hollola!

Pauliina’s note was so sweet and friendly. I like how each person in the community is, in some ways, a friend to every other, because of this shared interest in spreading greetings and knowledge through postcards. I never met Pauliina, and I probably never will, but even from almost 5,000 miles away, her card warmed up my day.
