Aura River, Turku, Finland

I received this picture of the beautiful Aura River
from Simo, who lives in Turku, Finland. He says
the big white sailing yacht is called 'Suomen Joutsen',
which translates to 'Swan of Finland'. You can also
see the tower of the Turku Cathedral on the top left.
When asked where you live, it is either 'this side',
meaning the same side as the Cathedral, or
'the other side' meaning the opposite.
Thank you, Simo, for the beautiful card. I know
I would love strolling along this beautiful river!
Simo also put a beautiful Finnish holograph stamp
on the card, but, unfortunately, my scanner
could not show the beauty of it--it blurred!
