not reykjavik

A first-time postcrosser from Germany sent this card, part of an intriguing project done in her hometown of Hannover. People took photos of different places in the city and made postcards, adding place names from somewhere quite other. I fell for it, in both senses. First, I was excited finally to get a card from Iceland! Better yet, it was one that did not look touristy. Then I turned the card over and immediately noted an Andrea Doria stamp, which I knew was German. Oh, an Icelander in Germany? Then I read the message. What an interesting project. A fab card--even if it's not Reykjavik.
