I got this card well before I opened this blog. Back when Border's books was closing they had a small section for postcards and this odd looking postcard was there.
Sadly, none of the bookstores around here sell postcards anymore.

Whasss Up?? The Bahamas
This card of an iguana comes from the super rare country of The Bahamas. On Postcrossing, there are only 14 or so Postcrossers. This card comes from Postcard United though and actually is the same Postcard United user who I sent my first card to the Bahamas to! Where as on Postcrossing once you mail one card to a user you then will not get a card from that user, Postcard United seems not to have that rule at this point.

This older photo postcard, dating from the early to mid 1990s, shows the Engineering Mall Fountain at Purdue University. At night, the fountain is lit by colored lights coming out of the raised part of the sculpture.
This and another fountain on campus are frequent sights of "fountain runs" where students run through the fountains to cool off in the warmer months, something which is not at all discouraged by the school.
This photo however does not show the changes made to the fountain in the late 1990s/early 2000s when an accident at the fountain cause the school to put a large silver cylinder over the water fall so a person can no longer run straight through the fountain as it is pictured here.

Sea-Tac International Global Airport
I make no hiding of the fact that I love travel and especially airtravel. This awesome card comes from Val, who sent me this wonderful card of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport while she was on a trip. The larger photo was taken in 1949 on Inauguration Day.
