Berdichev - UKRAINE

This beautiful vintage card shows Berdichev the hometown of the sender that now lives in Kiev, Ukraine. She wrote this card on Christmas Eve and her only wish is that the difficult political situation in Ukraine may be solved soon - I've been following the news about Ukraine with concern and I also hope that everything may be sorted peacefully. Thank you very much Ksenia and don't loose your hope in human kindness and good will. This postcard took 37 days to arrive!
