#AtoZChallenge | Z is for Zebra & Zarah


I guess that some people have chosen this word for the latest day of the #AtoZChallenge... but still I wanted to upload this nice zebra that Bryon (the USA) sent! (You knew already its cousin the quail, don't you?)

----------------------------------------------------------------


This postcard shows Buddhist Monks passing the Royal Palace in Phnom Pen, Cambodia. This is not the first postcard I have got from that country: back in 2009 and 2010 I swapped some postcards with Zarah.

This one was sent by Ana, though. Ana is from Macedonia, currently living in China, and travelling a lot. So you never know where her next postcard is arriving from: Malaysia, Greece... It can be even the house you were born in (That I call a real mail adventure!)

Actually, this postcard was signed by two people: Ana and... Zarah! I did not know that they were friends! Later, they sent me a picture of them together in front of the post office.

Don't you think sometimes that the world is small?

  2. I think I'd prefer a mail adventure zebra! Love the two postcards from Bryon, they're cool take on an animal alphabet.

    Phillip | Z is for Zines Zoinks! I made it to the end!

    1. I guess there is a book with the whole alphabet of animals.

      And yes... you made it to the end, and so I did!

  6. Ana and Zarah to close out your AtoZ challenge. Eva, you've outdone yourself, you clever clever person. Nice touch. (And the fact they turned out to be friends is just a cherry on top!)

    And congratulations. You helped make it a wonderful month!

  7. I quite enjoyed the 2 alphabet animals you shared this month. The story of a postcard from two friends of yours that you didn't know had a connection is also fun. I am glad I found your space on the net. I look forward to stopping by from time to time to see what adventures you have posted.

    Quite like the handsome Zebra:)
    I had a super time visiting you Eva. Your posts were all so unique and dare I say it--short:)
