A very kind Turkish person named Murat sent me an email a few weeks ago asking for my address so he could send me a postcard from Turkey. And then this lovely postcard arrived!
It shows the Sultanahmet Mosque in the center of Istanbul, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But my favorite part is these stamps!
Heart-shaped flower stamps, arranged in a flowery shape! I love when stamps can be so decorative as well as functional.
Murat said that I didn’t need to send anything in return, but I insisted, so this card is going to go back to Turkey on Monday:
It shows the Pacific Coast of Oregon and is one of my favorite postcard views of Oregon. I hope it arrives swiftly!
