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.
