Map of Israel

One more card for today. I did want to do a bigger update but I'm too busy, too many things to do and I'm also trying to get everything sorted and ready for the Postcrossing meet-up in London this Saturday.

This card is from the lovely Debora in Israel. I've received a few postcards from her and it's always a joy to get mail from her. This card is from a tag, isn't it adorable! I love mapcards and it's nice to see some rather different ones such as this one occasionally. The illustrations here remind me of some 80's children's books, the style is pretty similar to some I vaguely remember reading/looking at as a child.

Israeli stamps are so pretty! The one on the left is from a set of 5 stamps issued in 2009, depicting Fruits. This one here is Orange. The other stamp is from a set of 2 stamps issued in 2010, with the theme 'Cinemas in Israel'. The one here shows the Zion Cinema in Jerusalem.

Seeing this postcard reminds me that I should REALLY start working on my thesis. XD
I like it though. The postcard, I mean. It's really cool! :)

What is your thesis about? Sorry if you've already told me, I have such useless memory :S Good luck with it!

Haha, trust me - your memory can't be worse than mine. I don't even know what I had for breakfast this morning. ;)
My thesis is about the influence of religion on politics in Israel. I really liked the lecture my professor gave on that subject so I thought it might be interesting to research a bit more. :)
Thanks, btw. I will need luck! ;)
