This card is extra ordinary, because of it's shape. Its longer than normal cards. However the card it self is really beautiful. It shows the romantic city of Venice of Venezia in Italian.

The card was canceled in Padova on 5.05.08. There is also cancellation mark, with the writing Mal Ensamindo A El Salvador C.A. Does anyone know what that means? Thanks Eleue for sending this card!!

Rio de Janeiro

This wonderful card is one of my personal favorites as well. The statue of Christ the Redeemer over looking the city of Rio and the Sugar loaf mountain, a cracking view indeed!

Nice stamps used as well and both stamps are canceled quite well! It reads Rio De Janeiro-9 Mai 2008!Thanks Jorge Baotes Fuhrmann

A lake in Finland.

I received this official postcrossing card from Finland. I am not sure of the name of the place in the card but the place doesn't seem beautiful.

The sender didn't write his/her name on the card . So ...thanks ,sender!

Allianz Arena

Allianz Arena is the home of German Champions Bayern Munich and their cross town rivals 1860 Munich.

I was amused with this card when I received it because there wasn't a stamp on it at all! On closer inspection I figured out that the stamp must have fallen off some where along the way from Germany to Malaysia, because there are parts of cancellation marks on the card, as seen above!Thanks Yukiko for sending this card!

University of Coimbra

A really interesting card, mainly because of the error that occurred during the cancellation of this card! If you look at the stamp it is uncanceled ,but when you look at the front part of the card you notice a cancellation mark! Errors like this don't usual happen. I guess the card was not the right way up when the machine was supposed cancel the stamps! Cool!!

Thank you Kel for sending this card ...oh and thanks to the Portuguese postal service for making the mistake!lol!!
