Hello!  You already had a card from Oulu, I'm sending a map card of the top half of Finland.  Oulu is a bit below the cut.  I am originally from Tornio on the border of Sweden - when I was a teen we used to bike to Sweden to buy candy because it was cheaper there.  Some of my schoolmates in High School lived in Haparanda, Sweden.  It's a free border, so we could cross it whenever we wanted to.  I've gone to Ruka/Kuusamo area for vacation several times.  We usually stay at a cottage and make short hikes to nearby hills.  There are lots of reindeer in the area - one time we had 5 in the cottage yard.  Mia (5.5.2016)

Marin County, Calfornia
Welcome to Marin County, California!  One of California's original 27 counties, Marin County has a rich history filled with both cultural and political extremes.  Although providing much of the lumber for the massive rebuilding following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, Marin is currently known more for its liberals than for its logging.  With almost 75% of the county as protected and public land, and given its proximity to the SF Bay Area, it's easy to see where Mountain Biking, hippie-ism and granola consumption largely came from.  Political views aside, Marin County is home to a seemingly infinite number of trails, forests, beaches, waterfalls, views, main streets, and many other settings in which to simply enjoy being alive.  At least that's what I've found...I hope you do too!

Russia
Hi ther!  This is a card of Russia and I marked a place where my little city is.  I like living here, calm town with rather adequate people :)  Also I like to travel to Moscow, but I get tired of it too fast.  People always hurry, angry and never smile.  Have a good day and take care.
