A postcard from Belarus, from a Postcrossing participant, a student at the Minsk Linguistic State University.  She must be a really good student, as her written English is practically flawless. 

The Postcrossing Project continues to amaze me.  Just check out these stats:  in less than five years, almost 4,000,000 postcards have been sent around the world, each one making a little connection between individuals and cultures and languages.   When that little card arrives, which someone in a country somewhere has taken the time to select, write on and put in the mail, there's a quick moment of a very tangible connection to a real person living a real life, somewhere else.  I like that.
