I don't have but a hand-full of foreign postcards in my collection and will be the first foreign card that I've posted on Postcards Etcetera. I like this card on several levels. It's a transportation themed card which is one of my favorite topics to collect. I also love the look of this card. The circular design, the cities shown with the modes of transportation between them is very cool.
