Two cards arrived this week showing views of Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco with over 3 million residents. Made famous in a 1942 wartime movie, the area has ancient roots, with settlement dating from the 7th century BC.

Ile de la REUNION

This postcard simply transported me when I received it: to the lush hills of the Cirque de Salazie, on the Indian Ocean isle of Reunion. This area is a dormant volcanic caldera in the central Piton des Neiges area, which includes the highest elevations on the island.
