A special postcard from the Netherlands arrived on Saturday. The postcard is a “typical” Dutch scene, tulips and windmills to the horizon:

But what is really special is the stamp:

It’s the new, official Postcrossing stamp! Only available in the Netherlands, this stamp was released to commemorate the Postcrossing project. There’s a whole thread on the forum for arranging a swap with a person in the Netherlands who can offer these special stamps. It looks like some people still have a few open slots, including Jetske, with whom I traded. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about a stamp.
