This pastoral scene comes from the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. It shows a simple herding encampment and horses beneath a towering, mist-shrouded mountain imposing on the green valley below. Stunning in its simplicity, this is one of the few cards I have ever seen from this country.
This lovely card was mailed in February and arrived to me in May of 2010. It shows two views of the fragile low-lying atolls of this island nation, which is among the most vulnerable to climate change and sea rise risk, with an average elevation of just 3 feet above sea level (1 meter).
