St. Gallen, Switzerland

Good i didnt make an update yesterday as i intended to...not coz there was something bad about doing it, but i would have probably complained again how the postman is ignoring me and how im craving for mail and all....well, today was a GREAT mail day and i feel all cheerful and delighted...i even got two new officials US/FI...well, this wouldnt have meant anything unless now my ratio is 35:39....sometimes i feel like people hate me coz of that :) But i have 6 travelling, so soon it will be evened out...for a while...:) But right now i just feel content...and the sun is shining even though its cold....its just a nice day...

Ok, of course, i have none of the today's cards scanned so dont expect to see any of them, but i somehow feel more eager to post now that my mailbox is content :)
This wonderful card comes from St. Gallen in Switzerland which shows a UNESCO site.
The Abbey of Saint Gall was for many centuries one of the chief Benedictine abbeys in Europe. The Abbey has existed since 719 and became an independent principality during the 13th Century. It was founded by St. Othmar on the spot where Saint Gall had erected his Hermitage. The library at the abbey is one of the richest medieval libraries in the world. Since 1983, it has been an UNESCO whs.

this is how Simona ends her card:  Best wishes from the country with the world's best cheese and chocolate.
Mmmmmm.....for a person like me who loves both cheese and chocolate, this feels very appealing. I dont know if you had watched the Tom and Jerry cartoons, but there was one of them, where Jerry had lived in one of those cheeses with holes (which are very tasty, btw). I think that i love that cartoon mainly coz of the cheese...i mean, i can simply feel the taste of that cheese by just watching the cartoon....it was soo well made with a perfect yellow-cheese-colour! :)
