From Finland! Hanna sent this nature card of saimaa ringed seals. Unlike most other ringed seal species, Saimaa seals are found only in freshwater. Female Saimaa seals build lairs in snowdrifts near the shoreline rocks of the lake during breeding season.  Saimaa seal only exists in the Saimaa Lake system of eastern Finland, with only 270 individuals remaining in the wild.

My first UNESCO world Heritage site card! Thank you Dana. This is Toas Pueblo in New Mexico. The multi-storied adobe buildings have been continuously inhabited for over 1000 years.

Annika sent this card from Germany. She writes that she has just started this Postcrossing hobby and hasn’t received a card back yet. Not to worry, you should be receiveing cards from all over the world real soon! In South Africa we also have a Hannover! I’m intrigued by the flower stamp on the back, the Tränende Herz {bleeding heart}. I thought it might have been Germany’s national flower, but according to this expert, Germany has no national flower.
