well, i didnt quite plan to make an update today, but sometimes some things happen, and after your postman ignoring you, you just receive such mail, that you remain speechless and then burst in excitement....and you just cant sit still...so in order to sleep better (and have the caffeine evaporate too), ill give you a few cards....starting with one which arrived today...to my greatest surprise....not more not less, but North Korea!!! The country on my top 5 places to visit (if I ever get the chance to) One of the most fascinating and most intriguing countries to me, yet so mysterious....so one of the reasons why i would love to visit it is to see what is all the fuss about it...
well, i cant possibly understand what's written here, but would I be wrong if I relate this image to 'revolution'...or 'uprising'....or 'truce'?? If anyone could help me with the translation or maybe an explanation of whats really behind this image, id be really grateful :)
this is such a gem in my collection, that I have no idea how to store it...as clumsy as I am, it would be soaked in coffee....so once done with this update, i need to put it safe and sound, below other cards...keep it as treasure...if you're wondering why im so much dreading it...take a look below!
oh yes!! North Korean stamps!! Pyongyang cancellation....coz this card was INDEED mailed from North Korea itself!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Im still shocked honestly and find it hard to believe that I got a written and stamped card from THE Korea!
Thanks so much to Jean-Luc for this magnificent surprise! Not being on the initial list, I didnt really expect a card at all...so thats why im so thrilled and happy and thankful about this! Yay yay yayy!! Wohoooo!!! And it has taken exactly a month to reach me, which i must say is a decent time for travelling...actually, it is more than decent it had arrived in the first place! I just wonder if the NK Government has me on some list now after seeing my name here :)
two different stamps have been used on the card...both are definitives from a set of 12 issued in 2002.
well, this has been a real treat! and watch your mailbox! who knows, you might be one of the lucky ones as well :)
thank you soooooooooooooooooooo much Jean-Luc! I owe you a BIG one on this!
