Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba - CANADA
A official postcard with a herd of "Tatankas"! Niklaas is a teacher of English Literature (we share the passion of reading - my favorite English author? It's always hard to pick only one, but if I have to choose I will say Aldous Huxley) in the smal town of Morden in Manitoba and he sent me this card of the Riding Mountain National Park, a place filled with wildlife that was designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. Thank you very much Niklaas. This postcard took 13 days to arrive!
