Tyumen University, Siberia - RUSSIA
Along with the official card I've shared with you on the last post, Victoria gently slip in an envelope two more vintage cards. The first one is from the Geological Department of the University of Tyumen (her hometown) - it was issued in 1986 by the occasion of the 400th anniversary of this Siberian town. Thank you Victoria. This postcard took 37 days to arrive!
