Postcrossing: China


Unfortunately this card didn't scan too well because it is solid white with the gorgeous kite picture and the text in the middle.  I assume that the Chinese characters say "Kite".  The rest of the text reads:
Kites were used approximately 2,800 years ago in China, where materials ideal for kite building were readily available: silk fabric for sail material; fine, high-tensile-strength silk for flying line; and resilient bamboo for a strong, lightweight framework.  The kite was said to be the invention of the famous 5th century BC Chinese philosophers Mozi and Lu Ban.
On the back, she shares her contact information and writes my name in Chinese characters, and she also drew a small anime-style smiling face.  I really like the interesting facts and clean style of this card.  The stamp is just a printed postmark stamp.
