The message reads (apart from the Russian as my feeble English keyboard doesn't have the correct characters so I just used Google tranlate):
Hello Tanya :)
How are you today?
My name's Liza and I'm writing you from Russia (Siberia). It's great for me to send you a postcard - a piece of my town (Surgut) to Australia - so far from me.
"Don't worry - be happy!" (this quote makes me smile)
In my language it sounds like: "Не волнуйтесь - будьте счастливы!"
Hope you'll like this card!
Best wishes, Liza
The message reads (verbatim):
Hello, Tanya!!!The broken english makes it even more endearing :)
My name is Katerina, I live in Russia-town Kungan. Recently become involed crochet much I love this thing, now I knit myself a sweater and scarf to my boyfriend.
Good luck. Katerina =)
The stamps on this one were also a real treat!
Russia has solidified itself as my favourite nation to receive postcards from. I am constantly surprised by the variety and quality of cards I receive.
P.S. Haven't heard of Postcrossing? I tried to explain it all here.
