THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (also known as United States or USA or just America for short), is a country with populations 317,746,000 habitats. It's located in central North America between Canada and Mexico. USA is a federal republic consisting 50 states and a federal district. The capital city Washington DC and the largest city is New York.

Postcard : The postcard shown an American Masterworks by Charles Demuth (1883-1935). The title of this painting is : FROM THE GARDEN OF THE CHATEAU, 1921-1925.
FYI, Charles Demuth was an American watercolorist who turned to oils late in his career, developing a style of painting known as Precisionism.

Stamp : The stamp on this postcard is kind of shape stamp series Global Forever issued by the U.S. post office.


This is my first official postcards from the United States. Thank you to Carol for sending me this card. This card has traveled a distance of 16,042 km in 36 days.
Actually, I do not often receive cards from USA, either from direct swap or official. Althought it is on the 2nd ranking by most sent postcards.
