A Card From My Legica

on May 29, 2012

This really beautiful card comes from penpal Mirna in Croatia. It came as part of a parcel in which she also sent some ‘lega-lega’ coasters. On the card she explains that lega is an expression used only in Osijek (her town) meaning ‘friend’ (with legica being the feminine form) and lega-lega is a local brand-name so the coasters are totally unique to her town. What an amazing gift! It was such an awesome surprise! She also tells me this postcard is a reprint of a 1910 postcard of Osijek, showing the old part of the town, built in the 17th-18th century. Really beautiful and a great surprise!
