First Joint Postcrossing Meet-up

On Friday I got a special postcard from China. It was signed and sent during the First Joint Postcrossing Meet-up, which was held simultaneously between Singapore and Wuxi on 15th January 2017. Although the two places are nearly 4000km away from each other, the attendees of the meet-up were able to chat via their mobile devices. It was the 6th Postcrossing meetup in Singapore and 8th Postcrossing meetup in Wuxi. Sybones from Singapore and shijifeng from China organised the meet-up and arlynab from China designed the meet-up card.

Wuxi is a megapolis in the Jiangsu province. It is said to have been one of the birthplaces of China's modern industry and commerce and was the hometown of many important businessmen.

With nice matching stamps:
27th Asian International Stamp Exhibition in Wuxi (whole set) (issued 10-10-2011)

Luckily I also got the meet-up card from Singapore, which arrived two weeks earlier than the card from China.

Vanishing Trades (from set of four) (issued 26-11-2014)

Thank You very much Hanghui and Ginger!
