Old Town, Kissimmee - FL - USA
This postcard came from Belgium, but it shows "Old Town" a huge shopping center with restaurants and rides in Kissimmee, Florida USA the place where Hilde spent her vacations this summer (peculiar name... Wikipedia says it's from Indian origin, but I wonder if it didn't came from "Kiss Me"). I'm not a fan of advertising cards (and it's funny because this postcrosser says the same thing in her profile) but still, thank you very much Hilde - hope you may continue to enjoy your constant trips to the states. This postcard took 3 days to arrive!
