Postcard from Taiwan

There are currently 195 Countries recognised by the United Nations, and I hope to collect a postcard from each and every one of them. Getting a postcard from certain countries will be difficult I am sure, but I do like a challenge. I am doing this using my Interpals Profile and the Postcrossing website. I hope to have exchanges with lots of people and gain some insight into different cultures and backgrounds.

This is a very pretty postcard showing sky lanterns in Taiwan. Tayen describes people traditionally write their wishes on the lantern before letting them float off into the sky. This postcard also smashes the current record for longest distance travelled, previously held by the United States of America. The card has travelled an incredible 6037 miles! Postcard #13.
