Stop 86 - Kiev (again)

Our last postcard was sent to Kiev, in the Ukraine, 3088 kilometers away!


The postcard was sent to Margarita. We had already sent her one in February but it seems it must have got lost, and we are posting this replacement. This one was written by Agapito, a Basic 2 student who wrote on a postcard with a nice view of the whole of the Alameda park, one of the most beautiful places in Noia, although quite lacking now in poplar trees (the ones that give it its Spanish names, as álamos = poplars).


On the back, Agapito gives some information about himself and our town, and expresses his wishes of having Margo visit us sometime in the future.


Thanks, Agapito!
