28 maart 2009 - FI-511650 - Espoo

Finland is a very popular postcrossing country so it wasn't unexpected that I received two cards from Finland today.

The first is sent by a user who lives in Espoo, a capital near Helsinki. The card shows the statue 'Komen sepän patsas" which means 'The Three Blacksmiths'. The statue is made by Nylund in 1932.

The mail delivery was very fast!! The card has travelled a distance of 1,504 Kms in 2 days!

The stamp is original as well with something that is very often assiociated with The Netherlands....Tulips!! I think they have more different poststamps for priority post than in the Netherlands. We have only one kind of boring stamps for European countries and one for non-European countries...But in two weeks, there will be new stamps available for post within Europe and I'm looking forward to it!
