Receive postcards

About Dana...

I am a laid-off librarian and techno-dabbler with interests in photography, travel, and cats (wild and domestic). I also do a lot of biking, and got rid of my car in 2016. I volunteer for a local group that promotes bicycles as a form of transportation, where I hope to learn enough to become a bike mechanic. I'm a big fan of farmers' markets and small farms, and do some volunteer work for our local farmers' market. I enjoy collecting recipes, although I'm not much of a cook, and write a blog about it ( ; for my favorite recipes and regional cuisine, try ). If you ask for a phrase in my native language, I'll sent you Esperanto instead; it's much more interesting than English.

I especially like postcards that in some way reflect the area they come from. Even a nice ad or free card is fine if you tell me something interesting on it. One thing I would ask: please don't put the Postcrossing ID or anything else important in the last finger-width at the bottom of the card; my post office tends to put barcode stickers there and they don't always peel off easily.

In general I prefer natural rather than urban scenes, single images rather than multi-views, and don't care greatly for "cutesy" cards, but I only mention this in case you can't decide what you want to send. My favorite part of a postcard is the message on the back. Don't worry if your English is less than perfect; I've been there too (I once imitated a chicken in a busy German deli, trying to get something other than ham -- I was so tired of ham sandwiches). And, if something in this profile or on one of my cards is unclear, please point it out to me so I can "globalize" my English.

I speak English, Spanish, and Esperanto but I can also (usually) decipher Portuguese, Italian, and German, so feel free to write in one of those if you prefer -- then I'll get a puzzle as well as a postcard! Or you can teach me a word or phrase in another language, I collect those too. Esperantistoj, bonvolu skribi al mi en esperanto; mi bezonas la praktikon!
