Russia postcard

I got this one and only one Russian postcard. Please forgive me as I forget what building is this. Nevertheless, it is very beautiful. Hopefully i will have the opportunity to visit Russia one day. Talking about Russia, i was reminded of the former president of USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev(hope i have the spelling right). Anyone from Russia can update me on his status?

Scenic evening view of Hong Kong

Again, this is a postcard I have from Postcrossing.

This is a very scenic evening view of Hong Kong. Hong Kong is now one of the Chinese territory. In 1898, during the Ch'ng dynasty rule, or the Manchurian Empire, it was seconded to the British Colonial Adminsistration until 1997.

During the 100 years of British rule, the small island have emerged from a small fishing village to a famous port and centre of film making in the ASIA region.

Niagara Falls

A very beautiful postcard about the Niagara falls from Canada. I got this through postcrossing. For those who don't know what postcrossing is, it is a website for postcards enthusiasts like me to be able to enchange postcards with friends all over the world. Just google the word postcrossing and register yourself. Trust me, you won't be disspointed.

A once war torn state. I never imagine myself to be able to receive any postcard from there. The postcard illustrates a Muslim mosque.
