I' m happy to be part of this community. Since my childhood I have been collecting postcards. What a great idea to share this with other people ! Receiving cards from somewhere in the world makes me happy as well as selecting a postcard other Postcrossers like, putting some special stamps on it and telling you a bit about my life and environment.
I am a retired chemist. We have five Siberian Huskies, on my avatar you see Lord Cuno and Easy. I live in a town south of Berlin near the new BER airport. My home has an invaluable advantage for a Postcrosser : post office and post box are only 100 metres away.
I like foreign languages, motorbiking, cycling, art, reading, sudoku, sauna, people who are honest, reliable and emphatic, doing things all alone, camping, summer and sun, ice cold beer, schnitzel, swimming in lakes, VfL Wolfsburg (soccer), Augsburger Puppenkiste, watching "Tatort", Autobahn without speed limit and rock music - Deep Purple, Stones, Led Zeppelin, Billy Talent, Godsmack, Udo Lindenberg (No Panic on the Titanic !), Supertramp, Pink and others. Willy Brandt is my idol.

Please write your NAME on the card ! And if the description is only in Chinese, Korean or Japanese, please describe what´s on the card.
If you speak French, Russian or Spanish I´d be glad if you wrote me in your language (in Russian it is easier to read for me in capital letters).
Beautiful stamps on the card are appreciated.
