Lucky 13th letter from Belarus
Yes,today is a good day for posting letters,so I hope you are all enjoying it.The 13th letter arrived from Christina in Belarus.One of the first things we noticed was her creativity.We loved how she framed the letter with a newspaper from her country.Quite unique.I have never seen this done before and we loved it.We also loved the pretty stamps.We love when letters arrive with a variety of stamps.About Christina,she is 16 and trying to enter the university.I hope she is successful in her goals.She has a wide array of interests,some of which include:opera,castles and medicine.The town she lives in is called Brest and she says there are over 300,000 people living there.She describes it as quite a lovely place with wide and green streets,shady parks and gardens.Doesn't it make you want to visit...it sounds like a great place to relax and unwind after a long day.She also mentioned the most famous sightseeing place was Brest Fortress so I have found a picture of it to share with you all.It does indeed look like a great place to tour...the architecture is so lovely.Here is Brest Fortress below:
