Meow's Postcard Exchange

Back in early April, 2006, I put out a post on my main blog, asking if anyone wanted to join a Postcard Exchange ... this is still open. If you would like to join this exchange, just email me with your snail-mail address, and I will send you mine by return email, and there we go !!! Complete discretion is guaranteed ... your postal addresses will remain private and confidential, as (I hope) mine will to you. This blog is to display all the wonderful postcards I have received.

A blog friend of mine, Marie, an Aussie living in Sweden, spends part of each Summer sailing around Sweden and surrounds. This card came from Kalmar, which at one time was the biggest city in Sweden, and the centre of power, politics, and elegance. In the late 17th century the power base moved further north to Stockholm, but Kalmar still shows many traces of it's noble history. On this postcard there are pictures of the old water tower, the magnificent 800 year old renaissance-style castle, with it's fabulous views toward the sea, and the cathedral, a solid baroque style structure in the middle of town.
