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 lovely card from Eleonora in Bologna, Italy, shows the imposing Towers of Bologna. This lead me to reading about these towers on Wikipedia. In the 12th and 13th centuries there was an estimated 180 of these towers in the city of Bologna, it must have been something of a medieval sky scraper city! Since I already have postcards from Italy, this one is not included in my overall count to 195 cards.
