OFFICIAL Card - Lithuania

Rasa lives in Vilnius, Lithuania and sent me this card which I received on Wednesday. It took 42 days to get to me - wowza! The cards shows views of the small city of Trakai, which is about 30 km from her home. She wrote telling me it is famous for not only being the old capital of Lithuania, and having the island castle as pictured in the top left but also because it is the home of the Karaites one of the smallest ethnicity's in Lithuania and all Baltic countries. I love learning new things - thanks for the great card and lesson! And to top it all off a fantastic bird stamp. I really love when the sender uses the extra part around the stamp, sometimes that tells a bigger story.
