I live in Maryland in the Washington, DC area. I like organizing information and data.
If Postcrossing's algorithm has randomly picked me as the recipient of your next postcard, here is the short advice:
I like receiving all types of postcards. Unless there's a reason for modesty, please send postcards written, stamped, and "naked."
But if you like reading a long list (I'm one of those that like lists), here are some preferences:
Any Olympic Games related postcard (and stamps).
Viewcard (Picture / Scenic card) of:
Universities / Colleges
Library buildings and interiors
Museums (exteriors or interiors)
Landscapes (single-, rather than multi-views)
Cityscapes (street scenes, plaza scene, sidewalk cafe,
markets, colorfully painted row of houses/buildings, etc.)
Black and White Photography
Transportation system (especially subways) map
Pictures of objects from local museums:
Paintings (Renaissance to Contemporary / Figurative,
Historical, Portrait, Genre, or Abstract)
Sculptures (classical, statue, bust, or abstract)
Objects representing natural history, local history and culture
Picture card of what is important to you.
Acceptable advertisement postcards:
Film, play production, or
Other live performance (concert, dance, opera)
Exhibition advertisement (especially art exhibits)
If you're artistic, homemade postcards are fine as long as your card is strong enough to survive the machines that sort mail.
Please write on the postcard the date and whatever comes to mind, but if you're temporarily lost for words, here are some ideas / topics:
1. What did you do on your last vacation? Did you go anywhere?
2. What's the best place to visit if the visitor only had a few hours to spend in your area? What do you like about it?
3. Is there an American branded fast food restaurant (such as McDonald's, Starbucks, Kentucky Fried Chicken, etc.) where you live? Have you tried it? If not, why not? If you did try it, what did you think?
4. Favorite local food (other than chocolate) that you would recommend to visitors.
5. What recent local movie would you recommend if that movie was translated into other language?
6. Who is your favorite author? What do you think is their best work?
7. Who is your favorite artist? Best work by that artist?
8. Besides Postcrossing, what else are you doing on the Internet?
For writers of Chinese, please feel free to write in Chinese. I have a reliable translator
