North Carolina, USA (03)

My last card for today is a map of North Carolina, but different from the one I already have :)

Here are some of the basic facts from the back of the card:
State Capital: Raleigh
State Tree: Long Leaf Pine
State Flower: Dogwood
State Bird: Cardinal
Highest Point: Mount Mitchell, 6.684 feet
Largest City: Charlotte  (hi Lotte! :))
Area: 48.843 square miles
Statehood: Nov.21, 1789 (12th state admitted)
State Motto: Esse quam videri (To be rather than to seem)
State Song: The Old North State

yeah, i know youve already known most of these from my previous card, but the information are not EXACTLY the same...and its not bad to have this as a reminder ;))))
Btw, i dont know if its a virus or something, but ive caught some sort of a cold, a sore throat and some kind of a palate infection...where did this all come from, i dont know....but i hope it goes away soon coz it feels bad and annoying...coz i cant eat neither swallow without feeling a real pain...
ok...that would be it for today :)

Thought I had posted this before, but I guess not--I'm moving to North Carolina in August! So long New York City! I'll have to get more North Carolina postcards for my collection :)
