About Ksenia...

I'm working as senior specialist engineer, teaching in university and writing my PhD thesis in Electronics in small academic/industry town near Moscow.

Postcards for me are 'handshakes through thousands miles', I'm interested in people and their every day life maybe more than in postcards. I love surprises and weird, quirky, and ugly cards, nice messages, stamps, and decoration, THE WEIRDER THE BETTER!

I'm not your mum, and you don't need my approval of liking your card, better send me something you absolutely hate and want to get rid of [and write on the back - I HOPE YOU'LL HATE THIS CARD].

You can write me which superpower you like to have [if no mood for writing - stick your favorite teabag or movie/transport/museum ticket to the backside, use it for notes for a day or shopping list]

*Favorite themes* (in postcards and stamps - i don't expect them a lot, i know they are rare):
☄Women-scientists (I already have Anning, Ayrton, Ball, Bath, Blackwell, Clarke, Curie, Douglas, Easley, Goodall, Johnson, Hopper, Horney, Hypatia, Lamarr, Lovelace, Merian, Mirzakhani, Moser, Tereshkova, Zhenyi from '50 Women in Science')
☄Icebreakers, Northern fleet, Arctics
☄Anything with trypophobic pattern
☄Transneptunian objects
☄Anthropology, prehistoric humans, cave and paleolithic art
☄Industrial - Nuclear power plants, Power stations, Oil and heavy industry
☄Men in uniform (incl. firefighters) and naked

☄unusual materials (wooden, fabric, metal etc.) and nice-to-touch things (such as unusual postcard material, embossed stamps etc.)

More about me and postcards in my blog ^___^, so: http://blogxute.blogspot.com/2012/09/info-post.html

Dear Finnish postcrossers, you can make my day with funny vegetable or signs of the sky with eyes stamps.

Дорогие российские посткроссеры, ЧЕМ СТРАНЬШЕ (как говорила Алиса), ТЕМ ЛУЧШЕ, пришлите мне то, от чего хотите избавиться, хендмейд из необычных материалов (куски чего угодно примерно по размеру открытки - можно отправлять по тарифу письма по весу, почтальоны будут смотреть косо xD). Если не о чем писать - прилепите на обратную сторону любую бумажку/билет/пакетик чая, что попались вам в этот день, или используйте ее для списка покупок или дел на день.

Check my received cards to avoid duplicates at: "https://goo.gl/e2NXor"
I keep favorites here as a kind of wishlist so I remove cards when receiving similar or exact ones.

_Some words in your native language would be a challenge for my linguistic skills :D I'd be able to read and understand right away simple texts in German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian and any Slavic language, особенно српски, українська и беларуская мова.

Ik spreek een beetje Nederlands ^^ [you can write words right on a picture side, i'll use it in learning]

*For direct swap*, check "https://goo.gl/a74FAp".

P.S. I write my return address on the postcards in order to have it back if something is wrong and scan postcards without image. If i haven't registered your card, it isn't just here yet
