Card showing Pécs in Hungary...and nice to have it in the collection since my variety of cards from this country aint big...so it is good to meet Pécs for a change :)
It is considered as the fifth largest city in Hungary, located on the slopes of the Mecsek mountains in the south-west of the country, close to its border with Croatia.
The name Pécs is of Slavic origin and means "furnace"(there is a town in Serbia with similar name – Peć).
hmmm....this is interesting...coz 'furnace' in Macedonian would be 'печка' (or transcribed in Latin alphabet, pechka)...funny...didnt really occur to me...even though when i tried to pronounce the name of this city, it did sound like that...but who would have thought that there could be a connection! Ahh, i just love these language stuff :)
Btw...ive been thinking something...and this past year i had mostly posted cards received during this year...but if you take a look at all my non-posted cards, you'll see that they date back from 2008 and 2009 as well, and a number of not sorted out cards received or bought before i started postcrossing. So now, in 2011, i will try to take those cards into consideration too and finally give them the chance to see the light of the day...plus, during the first month at least, i wont really receive that many different countries so that i post them according to my self-imposed rule...so dont take this as a new year resolution...but just as something i think it is about time to be done...and let you know i love all the cards you had sent me, and that if i hadnt posted them so far is not coz i dont like them :)
