Hello from St. Louis Missouri!
My name is Mark and I live with my family in the very center of the United States. I like to read, garden and cook. I am very interested in history and enjoy visiting historical sites around my city and my country.
I would welcome any postcard that you might choose to send. Regular tourist cards are fine. I enjoy seeing the landmarks and places and people that make your country unique.
If you have any of my favorites listed below it would make my day and put a smile on my face!
*tattoos on men or women
*Gambling, Casino, Playing Card, Tarot Cards
*Beer, wine, liquor bottles or caps
*Pinup or Risque Cards
*crows, ravens, blackbirds
*old style travel and advertising posters (us Postcrossers, National Park Posters in WPA style please!)
*Shaped cards. Odd shapes, cutouts, triangles, circles
*The weird, the strange, the bizarre, that odd card you bought and regret because you think it's too strange. Send it to me.
The cards that I have tagged as Favorites are cards that I have received not ones I'm looking to get.
Really any card you choose to share with me will be great. I love opening the mail box and finding something besides a bill or an advertisement. I would prefer no cats or babies, but if you think I would like it go ahead, surprise me. No envelope is needed. Please write something on the card. If you can't think of anything tell me about your day, what did you last eat, where is a place that makes you happy, a favorite poem, or even what objects are in your pocket or what you see when you look out the nearest window. A greeting in your native language would be most welcome too!
I upload some cards on my Tumblr page at: http://maro-polo.tumblr.com/ . I scan all my cards sent, but won't be scanning all the cards I receive, only the ones I chose as favorites.
I am not able to do private swaps but if you are interested I also like to swap other paper items. I collect single playing cards, especially JOKERS and Aces. I would also like to swap maps, bottle caps, poker chips, advertising in a foreign language, small coins, old receipts or business papers in other languages, pages from foreign phone books, play money, game pieces, bottle caps, ticket stubs, almost anything small and easy to mail. if you are interested just let me know.
Thank you in advance for your postcard!
