18,557 Kms is far away from my country and means a lot of time difference. I receive a card from that distance at 2 December 2009 from New Zealand . It has travelled in 25 says. Very long, but it has to come from the other side of the world.
The card shows us a beach in the summer. Right now, it is summer in New Zealang, while in The Netherlands it's cold and snowy.
