Grüße aus Köln

Laura sent me this special postcard bought in the city of Cologne (Germany). The scan isn't as clear as I wanted, but it is just precious in person, with hints of glitter among the vintage people.

Do you know if this kind of postcards have any special name?

  1. Hi Eva, I think you chose the perfect word for this card, “precious” … indeed it is. Looking at the enlarged view is just wonderful … there is so much detail! I do hope someone will give us a name for this kind of card, I don’t know of one, except “great.” :-) I just picked up today’s mail and what a delight to find your card of 8 May 2018! I have just had an “adventure” on Google … First I looked up Tetovan and saw some amazing images. I’ve never seen anything like Blue City Chefchaouen … amazing! … is it close to your home? Second, I looked up Col du Tichka and, I hope Google is right, they sent me to an article about Tizi n’Tichka … a mountain pass in Morocco, 2260 metres above sea level. I am going to guess that the building on your card is near the pass. I also enjoyed the cool stamps on your card. Many thanks for the excellent mail adventure! :-) John

    1. Hi, John! I'm so glad that the postcard arrived, and that you like it. Thanks for letting me know! The building in the postcard is a mosque. As I told you, I haven't been exactly there, but yes, it must be an amazing place.

      Chefchaouen is about one hour far (by car) from my home. I have been there several times, it's a must when someone visit us. I received this posctard from that town not long ago.

    2. Yes: your Google research was right!

  2. I love all the detail in this postcard and the glitter must make it extra special in person.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
