two cities

A Japanese postcrosser sent this stunning view of Tokyo, sprawling across the broad Kanto plain, with a tiny Fuji in the distance. When I lived in Tokyo, a great place to work, eat, and drink, I could dig it. When I moved north into the mountains, it felt like this each time I had to go back.

A postcrosser who lives in Belo Horizonte sent this dynamic view of the city's Station Square. What I found out was that Belo Horizonte is the third-largest city in Brazil and is famous for its bars, called boteco, which are vital social venues for all in the city. Ah, city living.
