I sent Vadim a card at the end of August. It arrived in mid-September and he told me it was his first card from Canada. I was very pleasantly surprised to get this thank you card from him this week. He wrote that he noticed I like maps - how sweet! The cards shows lighthouses from the White Sea and the Russian stamp series to commemorate them. (Which I haven't been able to find much info on besides this page.) I also love this new Olympic stamp. I am really going to be looking forward to all the various stamps from the Sochi Games as I do get many cards from Russia. Thanks again Vadim for brightening my day!
