This nice post card was created by Hanny Qarera, Bandar Baru Bangi, Malaysia. Hanny had to send twice. First - as it is, then - in an envelope.
"I sent this post card to you via post office in Shah Alam, - Hanny explained, - but it returned to me again. I don't know why. I put it in an envelope and post again to your address. I hope this time the card will go to Russia..." So it arrived! Thank you, Hanny, for your perseverance!
