I hadn’t written any postcards since December, so whatever arrived throughout February were only a few stragglers with longer travel times. I received exactly four postcards in February.
Meanwhile, the results of the charity from Postcrossing and Deutsche Post are in. German Postcrossers sent 86,858 cards in December, raising 8,685.80 euros for Stiftung Lesen. 32 of my own cards sent in December reached their destination in time to count towards the project. Only one card didn’t make it in time and likely got lost in the mail stream.
The four cards I received in February came from three countries:
- Russia (2)
One even showed a UNESCO site, albeit not a new one for me:
- Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments
Several cards are travelling now and a few swaps have been arranged, so hopefully there will be more cards coming my way in March.
