My good friend Anita sent me another great card from her country, Macedonia - this time with a gorgeous multi-view postcard with 11 photos that surround the map and flag of that little Balkan paradise (I know it's not a proper map, but at least until I get another, I'll put it on the Map-Card List). Thank you very much Anita. This postcard took 6 days to arrive!
