I’m just realising the following: It should be punishable by law to sell postcards but not stamps. As this problem persists all over the world, I suppose this crime would make a prime opportunity to test the efficiency of the International Criminal Court. Or am I the only one who suffers from stamp unavailability whenever I try to send postcards? I’m not kidding here. I just went through my “stuff” box and counted about 50 written and addressed postcards from all over the world which have never been sent for acute lack of local stamps. So if you ever expected to receive a postcard from me and never got one, this is probably why.
