The funny fact about this card from the Netherlands is that it shows us a typical Dutch thing: Speedskating! I'm a huge speedskating fan. It is a picture of the finish of the Eleven Cities Tour. It is a huge skating competition on natural ice. The last event was in 1997. We are still waiting for another one. Actually, during the time that this card was sent, it was pretty cold in my country. We all were hoping for another tour. The card has traveled a distance of 56 kms in 20 days. I think it took so long because of Christmas.
