Postcrossing Taiwan 2012 Jul

It is about Postcrossing project
(This a postcard exchange online project: http://www.postcrossing.com )

Following are from "Postcrossing":

"The project
The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive at least one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world.

Why? Because, like the author, there are lots of people who like to receive real mail.
The element of surprise of receiving postcards from different places in the world (many of which you probably have never heard of) can turn your mailbox into a box of surprises - and who wouldn't like that?

How does it work?
First, the short version:

request an address from the website
mail the postcard to the address
wait to receive a postcard
register the received postcard in the system
The first step is to request to send a postcard. The website will display (and send you an e-mail) with the address of another member and a Postcard ID (e.g.: US-786). You then mail a postcard to that member.

The member receives the postcard and registers it using the Postcard ID that is on the postcard. At this point, you are eligible to receive a postcard from another user. You are now in line for the next person that requests to send a postcard. Where the postcard comes from is a surprise!

You can have up to 5 postcards traveling at any single time. Every time one of the postcards you send is registered, you can request another address. The number of postcards allowed to travel at any single time goes up the more postcards you send!"

Now I just finished my Master's Thesis,
so I have the time to write postcard again!
On 23 Jul 2012, I have sent 411 postcard and received 402 postcards.
Both of the sent distance and received distance were over 3 million km!

However, Taiwan is still ranked at the No. 7,
I think Taiwan will beyond China and become the No. 6.

Following is the top ten postcrossor in Taiwan!

I am glade that all the top 10 sent more than one thousand postcards!
I will still send postcard, too.
Welcome to Taiwan and Happy Postcrossing!
