Travel around the world: Prague

Did you know that I´ve been thinking of studying history 25 years ago? Well, I´ve chosen other subjects then, but I´ve always been interested in history ... so my Prague card is a bloody one, showing two important events that happened in Prague: In 1618, the Thirty Years´ War started with the Defenestration of Prague, and in 1968 mechanized infantry combat vehicles have set an end to the Prague Spring.
As a lover of literature, I prefer thinking of Franz Kafka when it comes to Prague! In the upper left corner you can see the beginning of his letter to his father, and the big red K is for Mr Josef K. of course ...
This card goes to Kati.

Prague and history are two things worth being familiar with, I think! I love the idea of the card traveling around . . . let me know if you want me to send you one and I will.

so some cards means to me however many you want! I don't keep score or count, and I love just being easy about trading.
so when I am home, I will hopefully remember to e-mail you again to ask for your snail mail address and I will just send you some.
when you are ready to mail to me, just e-mail and ask for my snail mail and I will send it.
happy card making!
-Em
