My name ist Grit. My husband and I live in the city of Magdeburg. It's the capital of Saxony-Anhalt, a federal state in Germany, situated in it's eastern part on the river Elbe. I work as an employee of the federal state government. My specialist field is the health care for elderly people.
My favourite activities are cycling, reading, gardening, watching movies. I'm interested in Asian and also in Native American Art and Culture. Also I like Zentangle art. Not at least I love my little tabby cat named Kiki.
Buddhist philosophy is an inspiration for me and it really changed my view to various aspects of life. I'm member of the German-Japanese Society and playing Wadaiko / Taiko drums (https://www.akaishidaiko.de/ and https://m.facebook.com/AkaishiDaikoDeutschland/). Traditional archery is also one of my favourite things to do.
I would be pleased by receiving cards showing motifs of the following themes (in random order):
> Asian and Native American Art and Culture (arts and crafts, sacred sites, people in traditional costumes, festivals, special dishes, ...)
> Garden culture, especially Japanese Gardens
> Etegami, Sumi-e
> Places of special historic or architectural interest in your hometown or country
> Nature and wildlife of your country
> Bicycles and all around cycling
> Book covers, BookCARDS
> Street Art / Mural Art
> Cats: Simons Cat, Irina Garmashova, Postallove Cat Breeds, Blue Cats by Rina Zeniuk, other funny cats
> Uli Stein
> Christmas and New Year cards in December
So, these are only suggestions, no obligation at all. Every card is welcome. Please feel free to send me cards of other themes you're interested in. I'm looking forward to your choice :-)
If you're from Japan or speaking Japanese, please write a sentence or a saying in Japanese. This will help me to learn.

When I started Postcrossing I got to know another member for swap. Now Prince Sisu from Ghana and me are penpals and I support his local school building project. They also sell postcards showing various motifs from Ghana to support this project.
Are you curious and interested? So have a look at his profile: https://www.postcrossing.com/user/dotsiisu
