After yesterday national holiday without cards (you know you're hooked on postcrossing when you start to regret having a holiday because the mailman doesn't come), I found today three new postcards on my mailbox - the first is this Map of Florida, a state known for being the destination of middle class americans after retirement, but I'm sure filled with lots of interesting things to see and to do (looking at the names of the cities, I'm a bit confused... I thought Hollywood was in California, Naples in Italy, Marthon in Greece, Melbourne in Australia and St.Petersburg in Russia, but they're all in Florida!!!) Thank you very much Jesus for my 15th US State map card. This postcard took 7 days to arrive!
Florida is a state in the southeastern region of the United States, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the south by the Straits of Florida. The state capital is Tallahassee, the largest city is Jacksonville, and the largest metropolitan area is the Miami metropolitan area. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, encompassing approximately 2,170 km.
