Overview: Postcards in November 2016

November started with a good amount of cards arriving, but since I didn’t have time for sending, the postcards also ceased coming in by the end of the month. In all, I received 24 postcards from 8 countries in November.

  • China
  • Germany
  • Indonesia (10)
  • Japan
  • Mali
  • Netherlands
  • Russia (8)
  • USA

Even though there were fewer cards than the months before, I still received 14 UNESCO cards:

  • Imperial Palaces of the Ming and Qing Dynasties in Beijing and Shenyang (China)
  • Classical Gardens of Suzhou (China)
  • Aachen Cathedral (Germany)
  • Roman Monuments, Cathedral of St Peter and Church of Our Lady in Trier (Germany)
  • Borobudur Temple Compounds (Indonesia)
  • Prambanan Temple Compounds (Indonesia)
  • Cultural Landscape of Bali Province: the Subak System as a Manifestation of the Tri Hita Karana Philosophy (Indonesia)
  • Timbuktu (Mali)
  • Alto Douro Wine Region (Portugal)
  • Historic and Architectural Complex of the Kazan Kremlin (Russia)
  • Historical Centre of the City of Yaroslavl (Russia)
  • Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey including Saint Margaret’s Church (United Kingdom)
  • Statue of Liberty (USA)
  • Monumental Earthworks of Poverty Point (USA)

Only two of the are new to my collection which grows to 647 collected sites. December is already two weeks old and I just picked up on sending postcards again, arranging so e swaps and sending some cards on Postcrossing. With the charity campaign of Postcrossing and Deutsche Post going into another round, I wanted to send as many cards as possible. But being quite busy, I could only send a few cards until now. I hope to get some more cards on their way in the next days.
