It is April - where did March go?
1601 - From Monica in Sweden. I have had Lena Anderson's January to April so far. I wonder if I'll get any more (hint, hint!) The following cards and letters arrived in late February and early March.
1441 - 'At the Window' by Hans Heyerdahl (1857-1913), from Danielle in the USA.
1443 - Mon ami Francais, Damien, has just been to New York.
1446 - Beynac (Dordogne) - a typical landscape of the Dordogne Valley from Damien.
1455 - This is a card I sent myself. Why, you may ask. I was testing whether my request to the postal sorting office to hand stamp my postcards was being taken note of. The card itself is one of my absolute favourites.
The Post Office did frank it by hand so the card wasn't damaged by the machinery and the framk looks so much nicer than the machine one.
1461 - This super card came from Ellen, a postcrosser from Amsterdam.

This was one of the stamps -
