Postcards from the Last Six Months

I spent most of this afternoon sorting through the gigantic pile of postcards that I had accumulated for the past six months. I have a system for sorting–first I sort by size. This makes it easier for me to put protective plastic sleeves on them without switching between different sizes with every other one. Then I sort them again by country and file them accordingly in boxes. Below, I’ve documented some of my progress. (This is also in a Twitter thread.)

Postcard #48 – When in Rome

I admit, when I first saw this postcard, I thought it was an illustration, not a photograph. It probably has to do with the resolution. The sender of this postcard visited this place in Rome and then went back to Germany to mail it, hence the German stamp and postmark.

Everyone wants to visit Rome, but I’ll assume that it’s probably dirtier and smellier than what one would imagine. It’s a rather old city, after all.

Postcard #42 – Handmade Noodles

A cooking postcard! All I’m going to say is that making noodles is way beyond my own sad cooking skills. I would rather just buy it than turn my kitchen into a disaster zone.
