Very cool postcard from Flagstaff, USA

 After months of no activity, Postcrossing is back thanks to a postcard from Flagstaff, one of the towns in Arizona through which the so-called Route 66 goes.  

The sender is Stacey, a travel writer who came across our blog while looking for information about Ourense in English. 

We're thrilled to make new friends via Postcrossing! A postcard from Ourense has been headed for Flagstaff.
Thanks, Stacey!
