Hello Postcrossing Friends,
I am Monica and I live in Holland, in the town Arnhem. I am married, have a grown up son, who lives in the same place. I work in a childrens bookstore, de Arnhemse Kinderboekwinkel, and I love reading. (Not only childrenbooks, I love whodunits!)
I also like singing, I sing in a chorus, named Cantalot and I love drawing and walking in the nature, especially in company from a dog! Arnhem is a nice and beautiful small city with many parks where you can walk with your dog without a leash. So you see I love dogs.
I am interested in the place where you live or something special from your country, culture, folklore and native artists. For example: Kumiho, the ninetailed fox, from Korean mythologie (and Japan and China?)
Pictures, figures or characters from children books and story’s that are famous in your country or culture means a lot to me. I love Moomins and Krtek, Pettson and Findus, Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh and many more!
The Russian illustrator Evgenii Rachev is one of my favorite’s, and the (fox) drawings from Katja Saario, Blue cats, two old ladies, Rosina Wachtmeister, Janosch (childrenbook illustrations).
Please write a few words in your own language (with English translation)
I am looking forward to receiving your postcards!
Kind regards from Holland, Monica
