In May 2012 with help of my little daughter' lucky hand I was a happy one to send the card with number RU - 1 000 000 (http://www.postcrossing.com/postcards/RU-1000000 ).
I will be glad to see cards on themes:
- UNESCO WHS,
- images of banknotes and coins,
- propaganda posters (of DPRK, PRC, USSR, USA etc.),
- rare countries postcards (even if you don't live there),
- vintage ads (Coca-Cola etc.),
- rulers, famous persons of your country,
- reproductions of paintings by famous artists,
- Texas postcards,
- drilling rigs & eqpt,
