A postcard a day, from a large collection of postcards received, sent to me by me, and/or collected over the last 30+ years.

Terracotta Warriors, Xi'an, China
It's probable a picture of these terracotta warriors doesn't do justice at all to what they look like or the impact they have when you are looking at them in person. I'll have to ask my friend who sent the postcard.
I've been sending and receiving postcards for over 30 years. When I travel, I send a postcard to myself, even if it's just a one day business trip. I badger my friends to send me postcards when they go on trips. I collected postcard ads from those free postcard dispensers, that used to be found near bathrooms and phone booths in public places around the world. I have a scrapbook of postcards, sent between 1902 and 1905 to my great grandfather from an aunt, who appears to have been traveling extensively around Europe. First post: July 5, 2009
