Hi Chris,
Hello from Down Under!  We're in autumn now and where I live near Brisbane in Queensland, it's warm and sunny and 27 degrees C.  The colourful parrot on this card is a rainbow lorikeet and we have some visit us every day at our home.  They can be qquite noisy especially in big groups, but it can also be very entertaining watching their funny antics.
Cheers, Sue  19/5/16

Hi Chris,
I thought that this card will fit your profile perfectly!  I took this photo a while ago.  My husband is a self-confessed coke-aholic!  I live and work outside the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa.  You can drive one hour into any direction from the CBD and you are guaranteed to find magic in the countryside.  Charming towns, vineyards, scenic mountains and beaches.  
Greetings, Magaretha

381.  Palekh Folk Painting, Russia
Hello Classy,
My name is Sveta, I'm from Moscow, Russia.  Have you ever heard about Palekh?  It's a style of Russian folk painting named by the same village.  Masters from there were well-known by their art of iconography, but after the revolution they had to look for other jobs so now Palekh painting is used on wooden lacquer boxes.
All the best!  Sveta.
