Hello from The Great Lakes state of Michigan!
I will enjoy any postcard type and learning a bit about your city or country. It is especially nice receiving mail that is not a bill or junk mail!
As a child, I had multiple pen pals all over the world and enjoyed writing to them. I still write letters today to family members, and always find lots to say to fill up a postcard I'm sending.
If you'd like, tell me about something special that's happened the last few days. I would like to know what you thought was interesting about your day, the people you were with or what you learned. Was this day special to you? Or tell me you how or what you associate with Michigan or the US. Who inspires you: how and why? Or tell me what you like about your own country, and what should I really know about it.
What interests me:
History: tell me about your city, state or country. Why are you proud of it?
Architecture: especially old-world building architecture
Doors and passageways
Art: impressionism from Monet, Renoir
