Hello Chris,  
I live in Bremen, in the north of Germany.  I've just spent two weeks on this beautiful island in the Mediterranean Sea.  We went swimming every day, the water was so warm and clear, but we also did some sightseeing.
Best wishes, Cornelia

565.  Lingonberries in FINLAND
Hello Chris, Greetings from Finland!  It's morning at the moment, that's why the temperature (+9 degrees C) is that low.  Although I'm guessing it's not going to rise but a few degrees.  It's really autumn in Finland!  I don't miod because the autumn is inspiring season for me.  Leaves are getting colourful and light is bright and air is clean.  Blueberry season is usually in July and August.  At the moment Finnish epople are after lingonberries in the forests.  On of my friends told me she got 20 litres, and that's a LOT!  I like to make smoothies made from bananas, raw chocolate, and lingonberries.  It's kind of sweet but sour.  I wish you al the best, Manka

Happy Postcrossing, Olivier

Hello Chris, 
About 1500 this kind of bears live in our forests.  I hope I don't meet one when I go to pick lingonberries.  I work in home care as a nurse.  Mostly take blook samples from elderly people who can't go to the lab.
All the best, Marja-Leena

568.  Taiping, Perak, MALAYSIA
Located in the town of Taiping, Perak, this museum is the oldest museum in Peninsula Malaysia.  It was constructed in 1883.  The museum has a complete and best orang alsi's collection as its main attraction also exhibits various collection of zoology and herbarium specimens and Malay cultural objects.
Hi Chris, Greetings once more from Malaysia.  This is the Fighter jet in front of the Perak Museum in Taiping which happens to be my home town.  Taiping is famous as the wettest town in Malaysia as it rains almost every (can't make out word).

569.  Lompoc, California
Hello from Lompoc, California!  I live in a small city by the coast.  Right now I am watching the Patriots demolish the Texans, and as much as I hate the Patriots, I have to respect Bill Bellichick (the Patriots' coach) for being such a football mastermind.  He can win with a 3rd string rookie QB.  Blows my mind how good the Patriots are.  But I hate them !  LOL
Happy Postcrossing, Shelby
I sent her a fun reply, telling her that I'm a Patriot's fan, and I received this back:
“Everyone who is not a Patriots fan hates the Patriots, you as a football should know that, LOL. Belichick is the Sith Lord, LOL. I do like Gronk and Edelman though, and I have been amazed these last 3 weeks to see the team pull of win after win with people like Garrapolo and Brisset, it's nuts. Belichick can win with anyone, why couldn't he take the Browns to the Superbowl? They deserve a little celebration and victory. Well, not the team's organization, but the fans. They deserve it.
I heard about the Lompoc Cafe in Maine! LOL that's hilarious.
What were you doing in Lompoc? Driving up/down the PCH?

570.  Riding High in Idaho
Hello!  This was as close as I had of a jackalope.  Been going back & forth for soccer games today.  Two of my kids play.  Hope you like PA!  It's beautiful in the fall!  Bonnie
