A lovely card I received through an Instagram swap last year. I love seeing pictures of post offices around the world but don't have too many on postcards so this is pretty special to me. ..and it's a pink post office as well!

The city is the administrative capital of Nuwara Eliya District, with a picturesque landscape and temperate climate.
