Welcome to Belarus


Astute blog watchers will notice that this card is from Belarus but has a Russian (RU) prefix instead of a Belarussian (BY) one!  The sender was visiting her grandmother in Belarus and sent this card from there, so (in Postcrossing terms) this was technically a card sent from Russia, but actually mailed from Belarus!)  

The card features Niasvizh Castle, a World Heritage site.

Le Pont-Neuf, 1872 by Pierre-Auguste Renoir

If you play the "guess the country from the Postcrossing code" game and thought "CH = China", you would be wrong.  "CH" stands for Switzerland.

The painting of this card is held at the national Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

This super cute cat postcard comes from Eugene, Oregon.  This cat actually looks like what my own cat probably looked like when she was a kitten (though, probably with a bit longer hair!)
