This postcard was sent to us from Finland. It was sent by Laila, who lives in Rauma, 2866 kilometers away!
On the card we can see sthe south harbour of the capital, Helsinki, and some of the ferries that cross the narrow stretch of the Baltic sea between Finland and Estonia. This is a sea that sometimes freezes in the winter, making for a fabulous sight!
In Advanced 2 we talked about the ferry 'Estonia' which covered a similar route (towards Stockholm, I believe) and which suffered an accident some years ago.
On the back, Laila tells us that she is also a teacher, and gives us some information about her small town Rauma (in spite of the card, she doesn't live in Helsinki). Rauma is a UNESCO World Heritage site with wonderful ancient architecture. And on the stamp we can see the famous "Northern Lights"!
