About Ksenia...

***Moved to a new address since October, 2020***

I'm working as senior specialist engineer and writing my PhD thesis in Electronics in academic/industry city, Moscow's exclave. I married a Dutchman, he moved here, we have a small son.

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, stamps, and decoration, THE WEIRDER THE BETTER! And write me something please!

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].

Important questions to answer: (1) Which superpower you'd like to have? (2) What would you do if you were a cat?
[if no mood for writing - stick your favorite teabag or any paper or ticket to the backside, use it for notes for a day or shopping list]

*Favorite rare themes* (in postcards and stamps):
☄Women-scientists (I already have Anning, Ayrton, Ball, Bath, Blackwell, Clarke, Curie, Douglas, Easley, Elion, Goodall, Johnson, Hopper, Horney, Hypatia, Lamarr, Lovelace, McClintock, Merian, Mirzakhani, Moser, Procter, Tereshkova, Zhenyi from '50 Women in Science' and Reiche, Jemison, L.Bai from 'Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls')
☄Icebreakers, Northern fleet, Arctica, Antarctica
☄Trypophobic patterns
☄Transneptunian objects
☄Anthropology, prehistoric humans, paleolithic art
☄Industrial - Nuclear power plants, Power stations, Oil and heavy industry
☄Men in uniform (incl. firefighters) and naked
☄Postcards from any museums
☄Any Art Unlimited postcard

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

More about me and postcards in my blog ^___^, so: https://blogxute.blogspot.com/p/about-me-and-my-preferences.html
My received cards and swap albums are linked there too, but I don't mind duplicates. I keep favorites here as a wishlist, so I remove cards when receiving exact ones.

_Ik spreek een beetje Nederlands ^^ [je kunt woorden op een kaart schrijven]. Mijn zoon is dol op Nina, Nijntjes penvriendin.

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

_Дорогие российские посткроссеры, ЧЕМ СТРАНЬШЕ, ТЕМ ЛУЧШЕ, ненужные, некрасивые и нелюбимые открытки, хендмейд, куски чего угодно (можно отправлять по тарифу письма по весу). Не о чем писать - прилепите любую бумажку/билет/пакетик чая, что попались вам в этот день, или используйте ее для списка дел на день.

_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, српски, українська и беларуская мова.

If you read this far, you're certainly a caring person, so probably any postcard from you will be chosen with love!
