The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Missouri

on January 5, 2014

postcards1_5This stunning card comes from Julie in the US and is my first from Missouri – yay! I always love getting new states, especially when it’s a total surprise, like this one was! Julie tells me that when she sent this card (way back in November, I’m horribly backlogged with cards on here!) the weather was doing crazy things, being anywhere between -1C and 20C! Weird! Missouri is a pretty central state, a little to the east of bang-on-central, but close enough. It was named for the Missouri River which in turn was named after a native American tribe. Archaeological excavations along the river itself have shown inhabitation dating back at least 7000 years. What a fascinating area it must be to live in! Thanks Julie!
