Postcards That Show Doors and Doorways

1238.  Indonesia
Hello, Chris.  Greetings from Indonesia!
My name is Zi and I've been dreaming to visit America one day.  Hopefully someday it can come true. Lol.
I've read that you're now working in a library?  Woah, that's so cool!  I love library, always spend my free time ther after school.  It's rather unfortunate that recently many local libraries in my town closed down.  They usually sold their collection to neighborhood people, and I ended up buying a bunch.  Hahaha.
Nice to know you!  Best wishes.

1176.  Thessaloniki, GREECE
Hello/ahoj.  My name is Petra.  I'm 19 and I'm from capital of Slovakia, Bratislava, but I moved to Greece and now I live in the 2nd largest city in Greece - Thessaloniki.  It is a beautiful multicultural city full of history like whole of this country.  Sending you many greetings from sunny Greece!  Petra.

Hello Chris!  I live in the country 40 miles west of Chicago and ten miles west of FermiLab, a federal government scientific research facility.  Ms. Gonzales was the resident artist until her death.  The feds bought farms and even a small town to have enough room for an accelerator.  They just celebrated their 50th birthday!  Jane
