A Finland Postcard

Hello there, I just have a single postcard for today's update. It was sent by Emilia, a little 9 year old girl from the small village of Rayrinki, Finland. Emilia is of course a Postcrossing member. The card is of Martti Ahtisaari, the 10th President of Finland. He served as president from 1994 until 2000. I 2008, Mr Ahtisaari received The Nobel Peace Prize. Emilia used a nice new stamp. It was issued Jan 22, 2009. It is 1 of 4 stamps in a miniature sheet honouring Finland nation builders. Alexander the First is featured on my stamp. The other 3 are George Magnus Sprengtporten, Carl Erik Mannerheim and Gustaf Mauritz Armfelt. Quite a nice set of stamps, one which I wouldn't mind owning. Thanks Emilia for this card.

That's all for today. As always your comments are welcome. Let's hear from you.
