I’m reviving my Postcard of the Week post. I’ve almost forgotten about it hehehe 😀
Today, I am posting a postcard sent to me by Tatjana, a very nice and thoughtful fellow postcard collector. She lives in Latvia, a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe.
As a long-term average the Baltic Sea, a brackish inland sea, is covered with ice for about 45% of its surface area at maximum annually. Probably that is why the scene looks eerie. Tatjana says it is cold in Latvija even in sunny days.
The word “Latvija” on the postcard is embossed in gold. I think something is wrong with the scanner, the gold color did not show up. I couldn’t enhance the picture to make the gold appear because I simply don’t know how 😀
Bye for now! It’s been raining for days already so stay dry 😉
