My ninth card came from Henry, an American living in Japan. He had managed to fit in a lot of writing on the card ... because in his opinion he and I have a lot in common and he wanted to share some of that with me. So much so in fact that a second card arrived a few days later. :-) And he's right, we do have a lot of things in common. But more on that later - I hope Henry will be mentioned again on this blog. :-)
The card showed a beautiful scene from Henry's home town Tokyo ... a shot from the Imperial Palace. Very Japanese. :-)
The card was sent on October 13th, and it traveled 8,430 kilometers to reach me on October 19th. Of all my received cards thus far, this had traveled the longest distance.
